How to promote the Hospital project

Show the new hospital presentation(on of the website and speak about.
How is doing Slovenian helpers: One person per yoga center takes care about the Hospital project .He(she) has all information, fliers, DVD – presentation, news etc.
"Once per month we make a 10 minute advertisement for the Hospital: in the middle of the program we show the Hospital presentation and distribute the flyers. If somebody wants to give support the same person is collecting the donations and the 10.Euros registration form". In Slovenia they made a badge with the logo ”YOU TOO CAN SAVE LIFES” and give as a present to the donor. Every coin is filling the pot!Every idea is most welcome!

Best Operation theater

The adjustment of the Operation theater:
We have to make some construction changes in the OT and we started to do it one week ago.The OT should have a high international standard with all possibilities for several kinds of surgery.
Urgently we need a Sonography machine (app. 16 000 euros) which is needed for the Urologist Surgeon as well as for Gynecologist and General Surgeon. A high quality Anesthesia machine is also required (app.25 000 euros) and other items like 2 defibrillators(4000 E) and 3 monitors(6000 E) for intensive care, as well as a ventilator for artificial respiration (see also what we need in
When the operation theater is ready different Surgeon already confirmed that they will come in the beginning for 1 or 2 days per month to operate here and give their services to the population. That’s a great thing and we are looking forward that this will happen soon!

No time to visit the doctors

In this time of the harvesting many farmers and labors are very busy and don’t have
time to come to such an occasion like the camp. Specially the MEDA (known as HENNA, see picture) is growing in this deserted area and can be collected in this time. Agriculture in Rajasthan is very difficult due to the hot climate of the desert.In this time the workers get a very high salary per hour for their herb collecting work. They are waiting the whole year for earning a large amount of money from henna harvesting. This Henna(used for red color spec. in cosmetics) is very famous and will be exported in the whole world. This is the basis for the prosperity of the farmers in the region and that’s why they put priority on their income and not on their health condition.

Camp advertisment - service for all

Advertisment for the free medical camps and the Hospital:
Two or three days before a camp is starting our car with 3 stuff members is making tours in the surrounding area for the advertisement and in the village itself where the camp takes place. They are speaking in loudspeakers and distributing the pamphlets. in all surrounding area The pamphlets with all details are prepared from our very active and excellent manager. M. Gelhot, who makes a great job. Our hospital team is very motivated and try its best to make our Hospital successful.

Sangeetas story as an eyepatient

On 13.11. seven patients where selected for free eye operations. Our ambulance drove them to Pali, where they have been operated. Thanks to your donations we have the possibilities to pay the costs of the operations and the stay of the patients in our hospital.
All operations where successful and all our patients left the Hospital in a happy mood looking forwards in a light future. Warmest thank to all of you!
Sangeeta Bhera Ramji, eye patient, her story
“ Iam a 30 old woman, labor, working in the fields, unmarried, living alone with my mother in Gundoj, a village 40km away from Jadan. Two years ago during my work in the fields, a stick of wood was pushed in my right eye, causing much pain. I didn’t go to any doctor for treatment of this injury. My right eye was burning and water flow out all the time and it was painful. I didn’t go to the doctor because still I could see. And I have to work to earn money for my mother and me. In the last 3 month my eyesight became worth. I could not see properly any more and was unable to do my work. Till 6 month my right eye became nearly blind. Thanks to God my brother Ramesh Garg gave us some money so that we could survive. My brother saw in the newspaper the announcement of the Camp in the Sri Swami Madhavananda Austria Hospital and that’s why I could come here. I have been operated on the 13.11. and I can see now on both eyes. I can not describe you how happy I am. The operation was successful, I can now live a normal life and I am not any more handicapped. “
Please donate for further eye operations. 1 operation cost only 30 Euros. Thank you.

Successful Megacamp in our Hospital

On 13.11.2010 the Sri Swami Madhavananda Austria Hospital organized a MEGA CAMP (where consultations and medicines are given free) with 12 doctors of different specification in the hospital itself.
After the Press conference on Pali the camp has been announced in the main newspapers of the Pali district and many people came to know about the free and good medical treatment.
On this day an Ophthalmologist, a Gynecologist, a Pediatrician, a Cardiothoracic Surgeon, an Orthopedic Surgeon and a General Surgeon, a Dermatologist, two Doctor of General Medicine, a Neuro - Physician, a Psychiatrist and a Dentist gave their selfless service for the needed one.
Also a blood bank was organized from Pali with the motto: DONATE BLOOD – SAVE LIFES. Blood donors where Indians as well as Europeans.
We had 1842 patients visiting on this day the camp, they came from all over the Pali district. This was the biggest camp which the Sri Swami Madhavananda Austria Hospital was organizing till now in the Hospital itself. We decided to make such a Mega camp every year on the Mahasamadhi day of Sri Swami Madhavananda.
