Hospital on Wheel's

Did you know?
 
This Mobile Hospital home delivers healthcare to villagers & slum dwellers.
 
Hi I'm Dr Sunilkumar Hebbi & today we are sharing a Mobile Doctor Clinic, an initiative by Matru Siri Foundation ® Bangalore India. It is 100% Non-Profit, 100% Apolitical, Totally Free of Cost including doctor consultation to medicines. It reaches out to remote villages & slums, which are not served by public transport and clearly other amenities including a hospital. Mobile networks are alien in these areas. More than 28 villages & urban slums on a fixed route are served. Anybody who needs help is served with love and professionally.


The main aim is to serve underprivileged people. The majority of the problems are skin related as they go into the forest to do work. These daily-rated workers get allergies and infections if not treated in time. The allergies and infections can become severe and serious if untreated.

Our intention is not just to give medicines. We care for their overall development. As doctors we are responsible for their overall health from preventive to sustaining care. In these remote villages having a hospital is a luxury. To commute from the village to the city is 25 kms. There are only two buses in a day, which go from Bijapur to Kotbagi, Madagunaki and takes about an hour one way.
 
If they go to a hospital in the city, they need to spend a day and approximately 1,000 rupees. More for medicines. The Mobile Doctor Clinic saves time and earning capacity and expenses for these people, who are mostly daily-rated labourers and earn 250 rupees per day. With Mobile Doctor Clinic it means saving money, saving time, and sometimes it also means saving lives. In (July 20th 2008, a beggar Anil met with an accident at Hosur main Road in Bengaluru. Dr Sunilkumar, who was working as a duty doctor in a private hospital, witnessed that accident. Anil was lying by the road side unattended.

Dr Sunilkumar stopped his care and gave first aid and took Anil to the hospital and cared for him.

“After this incident, I was deeply disturbed and realised that affordable healthcare was a big challenge for the poor and downtrodden,” says Dr. Sunilkumar Hebbi.

After working with many NGOs, another incident pushed the doctor further forward. Dr Sunilkumar Hebbi took a boy who injured himself at work to the hospital. After surgery the boy was fine. Dr Sunilkumar started with helping 600 such patients a month is now serving 1,500 outpatients per month. It is an initiative is by Matru Siri Foundation ® under the leadership of Dr Sunilkumar Hebbi. Later, he converted his car into a mobile clinic and launched the Mobile Doctor Clinic. The vehicle is equipped with medicines and apparatus to check blood pressure, sugar level etc. There is an ECG machine in the Mobile Doctor Clinic.
