The Jasani Group remains honoured and privileged to partner with Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care (SRLC), a programme launched by Shrimad Rajchandra Mission Dharampur, to offer seva (social service) and bring joy to the disadvantaged sections of the society. A few projects covered by programmes such as healthcare, childcare, tribal care and educational care are described briefly here.
Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital – Benefiting the underprivileged: Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital (SRH), located in Dharampur in Valsad district was founded in 2004, for the benefit of the underprivileged, tribal people of southern Gujarat. The 100-bedded, multispeciality, well-equipped charitable hospital with 32 full-time resident doctors, including 12 consultants and 2 dentists, offers roundthe- clock critical care for mothers and children and a wide range of tertiary level facilities, including super specialized surgical services such as paediatric surgeries, paediatric orthopaedic surgeries, surgeries for treating head and neck cancers and gastrointestinal cancers. The hospital has been accorded the prestigious status of First Referral Unit by the Govt of Gujarat.
SRH treats annually more than 2,00,000 patients in the OPD, IPD, and in medical camps and the outreach. Of these, 1,75,000 patients (88 per cent) receive treatment and medicines totally free of charge. The existing hospital is currently stretched beyond its limit and experiencing an average of 130 to 140 per cent bed occupancy. To meet this burgeoning demand, a new, bigger and a more modern, 250-bedded hospital is coming up about 3km away from the existing one. The hospital will be up and running by the end of this year.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU): In the state-of the-art, well-staffed, well-equipped NICU, around 1,000 babies, mostly preterm or with low birth weight, are treated annually. About 25 per cent of them are life and death cases. Some babies stay in the NICU for over a month. The hospital’s on-going relationship with the faculty of Stanford University School of Medicine has worked wonders in the NICU.
Shrimad Rajchandra District Early Intervention Centre (SRDEIC): Many babies who are born premature or with low birth weight, eventually suffer from serious physical or neurological disabilities, which if untreated, could last a lifetime. Problems include vision loss and eventually blindness, hearing loss and eventually irreversible deafness, cerebral palsy, etc.
All such babies are carefully identified and start receiving appropriate treatment, whilst in the NICU itself and after discharge, are referred, for further treatment, to the Early Intervention Centre. The primary focus at this centre is preventing or minimizing the occurrence of the above-mentioned disabilities and on enhancing the cognitive abilities of the babies. To achieve this goal, these babies and other children undergo highly specialized paediatric consultations and intervention for physiotherapy, orthopaedic surgeries , neurology, ophthalmology, audiometry, speech-language pathology, psychiatry and dentistry. The centre also offers a residential in-patient department for intensive therapy. The Shrimad Rajchandra Early Intervention Centre, the first in Gujarat and among the first in the country, has been accorded the title of District Early Intervention Centre and recognized as a model centre by the Government of Gujarat.
Organizing medical camps in remote areas: The hospital regularly conducts speciality and multi-speciality medical camps in villages near and distant. It has a robust outreach programme in place to bring primary level healthcare to the very doorstep of the underprivileged tribal people. It conducts school health screening camps and dental check-up and treatment camps using a mobile dental van.
Providing education to the needy: The primary goal of the educational care programme is to provide needy children with education, value-based learning and programmes designed for their overall development. The holistic approach adopted to achieve this goal encompasses a myriad range of activities including:
- Shrimad Rajchandra Vidyapeeth, a science college for aspiring tribal youth.
- Shrimad Rajchandra Gurukul, a secondary and higher secondary school for the underprivileged.
- Shrimad Rajchandra Vidyavihar, a rural residential school for tribal children.
Amazing Moments in CSR Initiative Shrimad Rajchandra Vidyapeeth (SRV) – Meeting the needs of tribal people: Taking the pride of place amongst all these activities is Shrimad Rajchandra Vidyapeeth (SRV), the science college established to meet the needs of tribal students. With only one other science college (Government Science College) in the entire district of Valsad, SRV helps in fulfilling the aspirations of talented tribal children with the potential and keen interest to pursue science, who otherwise would be forced to opt for commerce, arts, vocational training or perhaps even forego further studies. Located in the Karanjveri village in the Dharampur taluka in southern Gujarat, SRV offers courses in Bachelor of Science degrees in chemistry, microbiology, botany and mathematics, along with Master of Science degrees in chemistry and microbiology. SRV also offers classes in chemistry, physics, computer science, botany, microbiology, written and spoken English communication and environmental study.
COVID Health Centre
The hospital’s new, fully equipped, 50-bedded COVID Health Centre which was set up within a span of 10 days and became fully operational around the end of April 2021, is now functioning at 100% capacity. The COVID Centre is continuing to function at 100% capacity. In fact, to meet the burgeoning need, another 150 beds were added to the COVID Health Centre on the 9th of May 2021.
