Our Shanti Medical Group

A second part of our mission is to provide basis-medical facilities.  By the end of 2006 the ‘Shree Shanti Medical Hall and Dental Clinic’ (shanty meaning peace), locally staffed and supported by volunteer-doctors and experts from abroad was up and running in Chitre.  A local nurse and assistant has been hired and we are looking out for more; including western medical volunteers!.

A western midwife-volunteer stayed for 5 months to give training.  She also introduced awareness meetings for women about health and family-planning.  We installed a fully equipped dental cabinet with X-ray.  A city-dentist visits regularly and gives basic training to our staff on simple procedures.  Currently a well equipped lab has been installed and training provided.  Also computers, telephone- and internet-access have been introduced.
