MEDICAL CLINIC

Dr.Babu Narendran graduated in Modern Medicine with M.B.B.S from Government Medical College, Calicut  of Kerala in the year 1978 and Dr.Sally Graduated with her M.B.B.S degree from Government Mecical College, Kottayam in the year 1983. They both got married in the year 1983. They have 3 children, the first two sons are also in the mdical field- first one is a physio therapist and the second one is a Medical Doctor practicing in New Delhi.

The clinic they started to function in a small single room adjacent to their rented house in 1993 was functioning more than a full-fledged hospital.  We cannot call this either a clinic or a Hospital; it was an all-inclusive medical center! They used to deliver babies, do minor surgical procedures, manage simple bone fractures with POP immobilization, Tooth extraction etc.. . In this clinic cum dispensary cum labor room cum dressing room, they  had to do skin grafting, simple amputations, patella repair, tendon suturing etc …. For people in this jungle village, they were the only resort for meeting their health needs

After we purchased this property, the first structure that they constructed was the clinic building with three rooms- consulting room, dressing room, dispensing room and the patient waiting room. Now because of the influx of more patients, this facility has become so limited and the patients have to wait out side the hospital in the open air. An average of 50 to 60 patients attends the OP every day. Some times, it comes even up to 90 in number. The average fee they could collect from each patient is just 25 Rupees (equal to 0.60 USD)!! After a normal delivery the maximum amount they could charge is just 1000 Rupees (equal to 25 USD)!! What they earn is hardly enough to feed themselves.

This is a brief description of our Three in One service in this jungle. We do sincerely appreciate your desire to know more about this humble attempt lessend the pains of the downtrodden and helpless villagers and tribals. If you are interested to know more about our needs, you can contact us.
