Welcome to Medical Relief for India
Written by Radhe Pfau   

Medical Relief for India is a non-profit organization dedicated to programs which provide free medical care to the poor and needy in India. 

One such program is the SOS Memorial Trust (SOSMT), a charitable foundation established by Dr. K S Charak. The SOSMT, through Dr. K S Charak's leadership, provides free surgical and medical treatment to rural India by holding week-long camps in select rural areas. Bhagdevar, Vindhyachal and Bani are just a few of the towns where the camps have been held due to the unbridled poverty and severe lack of medical care in these regions. Please take a few moments of your time to watch an amazing video of Dr. K.S. Charak and his team of volunteers at a recent medical camp in India.The video was taken by Samvedana,a non-for-profit foundation in Europe.    

 




To support programs as the SOS Memorial Trust, the non-for-profit Samjivani with marks Foundation has been established here in the United States. Find out how you can help support such causes. {Please note, if you are viewing this site from a location outside of the United States and are interested in in supporting, find out how you can help support.}

Written by Administrator   

The Shri Onkar Singh Memorial Trust organised its fortieth free surgical cum medical camp in the small and remote village called Kapkot in the Bageshwar district of Uttarakhand State during the period October 12 to 18, 2014.

Kapkot is a small picturesque village on the route to Pindari glacier, some 500 kilometres from Delhi, situated on the banks of the Saryu river. The camp was held in the premises of the Community Health Centre (CHC, Kapkot). The Trust had organised a similar camp in the same venue last year too, conferring a lot of medical benefit upon the patients of Kapkot and the surrounding areas.

A total of 1223 patients were treated in the OPD during the five days from Monday to Friday, and provided free consultation and medicines. Of these, forty-six patients received surgical treatment. There was some provision of lab investigations, X-ray and ultrasound in the hospital, and these proved quite useful for our patients.
