Shrimad Rajchandra Sarvamangal Trust (SRST) provides best quality all-inclusive healthcare facilities to marginalised families residing in rural Gujarat. SRST manages the healthcare and woman-care initiatives of Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care (SRLC), a ten-fold programme designed for holistic and integrated upliftment of the underprivileged.
SRST’s activities are:
Multi-Specialty Hospital: Launched in 2004 in Dharampur, the hospital is a 55-bed multi-specialty hospital offering quality services at highly subsidised rates to the less privileged throughout the year. It is the best equipped hospital in Dharampur. Roughly, half a million patients have benefitted from this hospital in the past years.
Viklang Centre for Physically Handicapped: Started in 2011 to support the physically handicapped in Valsad district. The Centre is child-friendly and state-of-the-art unit with the primary objective to make the entire district disability-free. Consultation sessions, therapies and surgeries are offered at minimal cost.
Medical Camps: Free large-scale medical camps, multi-diagnostic treatment camps are organised throughout the year. Medical Specialists from 15 different disciplines participate to treat local patients.
Preventive Care Programme: Door-to-door surveys are conducted to screen an individual’s health condition. This is one of the preventive measures taken by the volunteers.
Health Education & Awareness Lessons: Health awareness drives are conducted to sensitize the rural population on topics like pregnancy, childcare, immunisation, nutrition, balanced diet, hygiene, healthy cooking practices, and prevention of water-borne diseases through purification of drinking water, malaria, TB and other communicable diseases. Optimum use of power point presentations, street plays, posters, etc. is made to increase the effectiveness of subject matter being delivered.
Safe Motherhood: Offers excellent facilities for less privileged expectant mothers to be able to deliver in a clean and safe environment. Pregnant women registered under the Gujarat Government Chiranjeevi Scheme can avail free services at the hospital/centres run by SRST.
Empowerment: Creating employment for rural and less privileged women is the prime objective. Mahila Gruha Udyog Project was launched to train women in production and marketing of food products, thus making them self-reliant.
