"Be conscious of the Divine within you. It will never fail you."
Arpana Hospital – Lighthouse of Hope
Arpana Hospital was started in 1980 with the aim to provide compassionate, affordable and high quality healthcare to meet rural health needs. Patients come from 1000 villages and towns, with a population of over 1 million. We are very happy to be able to say:
"NO PATIENT WAS TURNED AWAY FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO PAY"
GROWTH OF HEALTH SERVICES
Ophthalmology Special Clinics & Outreach Camps include Diabetic Retinopathy, Paediatric Ophthalmology and Squint, Orbit, Retinal Detachment Surgery and Vitreo Retina.
Emergency Care Workshops are regularly held by paramedic volunteers from Northern Ireland, providing week long training for staff and rural women leaders.
Neonatal Care Unit
With equipment purchased through the kind support of Arpana Canada, the Neonatal Unit in Arpana Hospital has been upgraded.
Out of 82 babies who were admitted in the neonatal care unit between January-December’2018, 70 babies were safely discharged. Free ambulance service was provided to babies being sent to tertiary care centers and extended to older children also.
Trainings: In 2018, with the focus on creating awareness amongst rural women about safe neonatal practices, especially Arpana’s special ambulance for neonatal care, 7 trainings were given to Arpana workers and village women leaders who were then able to communicate life saving mother child health knowledge to over 11,000 self help group women in over 800 groups.
