Help medicine baba

Ask for an update


Omkar Nath Sharma born in India (around 1940) also known as the “Medicine Baba” (Medicine Monk), is a retired blood bank technician from a hospital in New Delhi, who voluntarily collects unused medicines from people and distributes them to the poor free of charge. Omkar ji started collecting medicine after realising the acute lack of accessibility of medicines, when he witnessed Delhi Metro under-construction bridge collapsed in East Delhi in 2008, claiming the lives of two labourers and injuring many others. The local hospital administered basic first aid, but nothing else and the injured returned home to die, unable to afford the cost of treatment. That incident shook Omkar ji and he became determined to not let something like this happen again.Since last eight years wearing a saffron kurta (shirt) that says “Mobile medicine bank for poor patients”, Omkar ji starts every day at 6 am from his rented home in the Uttam Nagar slums and goes door to door in different areas of Delhi asking for unused medicines, which he then distributes to charitable hospitals, NGOs and clinics
