Medical Relief for India: Help Provide Medical Care to Rural India
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. Through Dr. K.S. Charak’s leadership, the SOSMT providers free surgical and medical treatment at 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 medical camp in India. The video was taken by Samvedana, a non-for-profit foundation in Europe.
To support programs such as the SOS Memorial Trust the non-for-profit, Samjivani Foundation has been established here in the United States. Find out how you can help support such causes.
