Mobile Medical Clinic

Category: Out Reach

The mobile hospital is another excellent feature with two mobile ambulances. These vehicles operate on a fixed schedule in different parts of Uttarkashi, with a team of doctors, pharmacists, nurses and equipment, treating patients in the daytime and coming back to the ashram in the evenings.The mobile hospital service was started to provide primary medical support to the people living in remote forest areas and villages in and around Ganeshpur. Five days a week, a team of doctors and assistants travel to the various selected villages and attend to the patients. 

This mobile hospital is a great help for the hundreds those who are not able to come to the main hospital and live in the mountain peaks and dense forest villages where the government cannot supply enough medical help. This service was very much appreciated in 2012 and 2013 with the Assiganga and Kedarnath disasters. In emergency cases local people come in the middle of the night to the ashram, where an ambulance can take them to hospitals in Dehradun or Rishikesh.
