FREE MEDICAL CLINIC IN POWAI
Since April 2015, every Thursday, we arrange for a free medical clinic at Anoushka Clinic, Crystal Centre, Raheja Vihar, Powai, Mumbai, between 2:30-4:30 pm. We aim to provide quality medical facilities to the weaker section of society, namely domestic helps, guards, construction site workers etc. We have tied up with a qualified MBBS Doctor who attends to these patients and dispenses basic medicines free of cost.
Around 30-40 patients avail of this free service every week.
So far (till May 2016) we have conducted some ~60 sessions of free clinic and have attended to some 2500+ patients. Our clinic is visited mainly by maids, guards and construction workers staying in and around Powai. We are also piloting a ‘housing society social responsibility’ programme on the lines of CSR. We are working with housing societies to assist them conduct in-house clinics so that they can help the maids, drivers and guards.
We are working towards engaging more doctors so that the clinic can be extended for more days and subsequently, in other areas.
