One year ago she had an accident in her home, she slipped on the floor and fall very badly. After this accident she did'nt get any treatment or examination , she was not brought to a Doctor for help, she was alone in misery. After this she was not any more able to fulfill her daily duties at home because she couldnt stand or sit any more. She came to us in the Malpurya Camp only by roping on the earth, because she can't use any more the right leg. The bones are already joint but in a complete wrong direction - so all her working possibilities are reduced to zero, she can only rope on the floor.We took her to the hospital,where she get the first X-ray of the leg, which shows a fracture in the right hip joint but also a fracture in the femur. All is already in calcification but the bones joint in a wrong position. Also the joints,ligaments and muscles of the whole leg are reduced and the whole leg is complitly stiff. another problem is that se cannot see on both eyes due to catharract.Our Hospital provide her tomorrow a free eye operation. In the morning our Ambulance car will fatch her from her home and bring her to the Hospital for operation. The catarract operation will be done the same day.

We decided to do our best to help her!She will need an artificial hip joint,which is extremly costly and must be done in a special clinique. Afterwards she will need also a long time of rehabilatation too. If it is possible please help so that we can make this operation possible!

Thanks to Mrs. Phuli Devi

Mrs.Phuli Devi is the most joyful person of our staff. She is taking care of the kitchen and preparing the food for all staff members. She is 40 years old, married and has 4 children, 3 boys and 1 daughter. Her husband Narayan Lal, is a painter in our workshop. They are both living in the worker quarter. The oldest son, 21a, is learning pharmacy at Falna(and has to be supported financially) , the other 2 children are students of the Gyan Putra school of the Ashram. The daughter is still unmarried, she finished the 9th school class. Both parents have now to earn the money (appr. 4000 Euros) for her marriage, which is a very high amount for them. Phuli Devi is working since 1,5 years in our hospital and I saw her only smiling day by day. She is for me the sunlight of this big hospital and even we cannot communicate very well it is always a pleasure to see her and feel her positive vibration. Also the food she is preparing for all of us is very good and this has also to do something with her positive and lovingly nature.
I asked her for a statement – so she just told: ‘I love my work and I like to be here. All are nice to me and they appreciate my cooking.’ Thank you Phuli Devi for your services and we wish you a long and happy life!

Dental Health camp in Jadan village

Dr. Abishek Dadhic, dentist of our hospital, conducted a Dental Health camp on 13.March 2012 in the Government school of Jadan village. The children of the Primary school, students in the age of 6 to 14 years, the classes 1 to 8, participated with big interest in the camp. Dr. Dadhic instructed them in brushing techniques, oral hygiene and general hygiene, but also in healthy food and prevention of dental diseases. Around 250 toothpaste and toothbrushes where distributed among the children along with an education chart.This children came from rural area villages, families living mostly in simple huts without electricity and water. Mostly the oral hygiene consists in cleaning the teeth with finger and ashes, which is not the proper way to get clean teeth and gums. We hope that they will follow our advises, becoming an example in their families and become aware of the importance of dental care for the wellbeing of the general health.

Wrong treatment and correct treatment, the destiny of a farmer

On the 11. Feb. M. Kanha Ram came in our hospital. He is a 60years old farmer from Jadan village. He had since one year big problems with his right shoulder. He could not lift up his arm and not work with both hands in farming, due to severe pain. One friend of him told him that in a nearby village there is a man healing with hot iron rode. So he decided to go to this man searching for help. He reached at his home the next day. The man, who had no medical education at all, but pretending to be able to cure people, heated an iron rode in the open fire and touched with the glowing iron rode the top of the shoulder of Kanha Ram and hold it there for a while. It was a terrible pain and Khana Ram was screaming loudly. It took him 3 weeks that the wound was healing but no success concerning his shoulder problem.
Our Hospital gives free consultations to the Jadan village and so he came to us searching for a professional help. Our senior Dr., Dr. Arora make the diagnosis that he has a frozzen shoulder and referred him to our Physiotherapist Dr. Dhananjay. He started a treatment with Ultrasound therapy, Short wave Diathermy and special exercises to improve the function of the shoulder joint. Kanha Ramis is very happy now that finaly his shoulder becomes better and better. He started already to work again as a farmer, which work he had to stop for already one year.

Hospital staff is going to a village giving free services

It is a big action when our hospital staff with doctors, nurses, equipments and medicines is going in our ambulance car to the villages TO MAKE A FREE MEDICAL CAMP. Mostly there is nothing prepared there, except a small naked room....So we have to adapt everything: tables, chairs, lights,instruments, dental chair for our dentist, registrations, flyers etc. etc. 3-4 days before we make advertisement in the village and around area with car and loudspeaker, distributing flyers, so that people know that we will give free medical services on this or that day.Our whole team is occupied the whole day, morning till evening, to make this camp possible.Few members of course remain in the Hospital to provide all medical facilities there. People of the village in this rural area have very rare opportunity to see and consult doctors - that's why this kind of service is very useful for them and free of costs.They are thankful and happy about this. In each and every camp we select patients for eye operations which will be performed afterwards. We thank all donors to make this service possible so that our brothers and sisters of this rural areas, can benefit from medical services.Our staff also is very happy to serve there. A lot of thanks to them also!

Story of Prathvi Singh

Prathvi Singh is a farmer in Malpuriya Kalla village. He has 5 children, 3 boys and two daughters, which are already married, living far away with their husbands family. He has an income from approximately 3000 rupees per month (appr.50 EUR) for a family with 4 members at present.For this people in the very rural areas the visit of a doctor, transportation, cost of medicines etc. is a big problem and many cannot enforce the most simple medical examinations and treatments.
Since 9 month Pathvi Singh has a tumor on the right side of his neck. He went to our hospital where Dr. Radesh Vyas, our general surgeon, saw him and diagnosed a cancer disease. He recommended him to go to a big hospital in Jodhpur for operation. But Prathvi Singh didn’t do it, because he is much afraid before the operation. He visited Dr. Vyas another 2 times for symptomatically therapy but he could not be convinced to go for operation. This time,when we came to his village Malpuriya Kalla, where the hospital was holding a free camp, he came again to us. Dr. Vyas and me, both we tried to motivate him to go for operation, telling him that his children in the age of 19 – 23 years are in urgent need of their father. He listened carefully and promised to go for operation and we promised him to stay in contact with him any time if he needs our help. He can get the operation and all medicines even for free in the Mathur Das Government Hospital in Jodhpur, because he has an identity card that his family is under the poverty line and for them the Indian government provides free medical services. With all our best wishes and the promise to stay in touch with us we let him go. May God bless his way and may the operation will give him long life and good health.
