Divine Love on Wheels

The Sri Sathya Sai Mobile Medicare Project, which was launched on the 20th of April, 2007 in a very humble manner, with the Blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, has moved from strength to strength. As of 30th June, 2010 over 7,12,310 patients, irrespective of caste and creeds from all over Maharashtra have been provided with free medical aid and treatment for various ailments.

The latest Statistical Report can be viewed from the below-mentioned link and the same is attached herewith

Statistical Reports of Mobile Medicare Project ( June 2010)

Presently the project covers Mumbai (Zone 1,2 and 3), Navi Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Aurangabad, Kolhapur, Yavatmal,Washim, Nagpur, Nashik, Buldana, Nanded, Parbhani, Bhandara and Jalgaon in Maharashtra State.

Mobile vans are being introduced in Dhule, Amravati, Ghadchiroli and Sholapur shortly.

A whole-hearted effort is being undertaken to fight malnutrition particularly among children and women.

The Project involves the acquisition of several designer mobile clinics/ dispensaries, fully furnished with state of art medical equipment.

The project was replicated in all the Districts of Maharashtra and can be a source of inspiration to other Sri Sathya Sai Mobile Medicare Project states to implement the same, thus covering the entire country over a period of time. Thus Bhagavan’s vision of free health service to all will be fulfilled. Bhagavan has stressed time and again that Water, Health and Education should be available to all for free.

Currently 18 vehicles operational all over Maharashtra and 9 more new vehicles to be launched shortly. One of the vans is a "Specialised Opthalmic Van" for conducting comprehensive eye camps in villages.

Furthermore the overall management of the above project is conducted with the efficiency of a professionally managed corporation or organisation. The efficiency and discipline of a hospital is being matched with the dedication and love of a spiritual organization.

The concept of the Free Mobile Dispensaries is not a new one, but, as envisaged above, in terms of approach, vision, scale and attitude is highly ambitious. It is acknowledged by professionals in the medical and social sectors, that primary health services should be accorded the highest priority, if millions of Indians are to enjoy better health. And this is possible only by reaching out directly to the people.
