Why we do it?
Thousands of villages across India and numerous other countries don’t have even a basic medical clinic and many people barely have the opportunity to be treated by a doctor. In spite of this, many young doctors refuse to serve in rural areas and want nothing to do with government hospitals. Bridging this gap is what Aarogya Seva, headed by its founder-director Dr. Dayaprasad G. Kulkarni is doing on a massive scale. It is a not-for-profit, voluntary and humanitarian organization committed to providing health and healthcare services at low or no cost. The organisation provides a structured platform for a huge volunteer bank of doctors who are willing to contribute their time and service, provided they don’t have to mobilise the community and arrange the logistics. This directly benefits an equally large population that is willing to accept their services. Having worked with many international organisations and NGOs including Doctors Without Borders and in Tsunami-torn Nagapattinam, Aarogya Seva has organized a series of interventions in villages, forested or naxal-afflicted areas, slums, pockets with migrant workers and government schools among others. The Yatra has traveled to over 15 locations so far reaching out to over 100000 beneficiaries.
Who can do it?
Medical and non-medical volunteers typically between the ages of 18-80 volunteer in our missions depending on the skill sets required, nature of the mission, terrain, geography, climatic and safety situations. Each Yatra is unique and a life-changing experience for everyone involved. We solicit certain specialists according to the needs.
