In order to help these workers and their families, “Vardan Foundation” (Smt. Savitridevi Kishanlal Marwari Charitable Trust) has tied up with Central Government of India’s Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) to run a Hospital at Kadodara, Surat (centre of the industrial belt).
The hospital is called ESIC-MEUD ‘Vardan’ Hospital.
All activities including OPDs, IPDs, Medicines, Labs etc. are completely free whereas lab reports and medicines are given at a subsidy of 20-50%. The subsidy charges are borne by Vardan Foundation.
There are two functional OPDs, five IPDs, ANM services, full-fledged clinical laboratory and pharmacy. Specialist Doctors visit the hospital on a periodic-planned basis. Please see the Hospital Walk-Through here.
The patients are majorly from Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) and Lower Income Groups (LIG) but also comprise of economically marginalized farmers and traders from the villages and gram-panchayats nearby.
This is an absolutely non-profit permanent undertaking. Saving the lives of as many people as possible is the sole aim.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are severely under-resourced. Our funding has been cut off and we are struggling to run the hospital and help poor and needy people. We need your help. All donations will be used to buy medical goods, medicines and other urgently needed items.
We look forward to your support.
