THE DR. GAIL & MRS. DITOSA MEMORIAL MEDICAL CLINIC
We are happy to announce that STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST has set up a FREE medical clinic for the impoverished and for Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) on 18 th June, 2022, at our Office location in Sangolda, Goa.
The clinic is named “THE DR. GAIL & MRS. DITOSA MEMORIAL MEDICAL CLINIC” after two philanthropic women who always made it their priority to alleviate the sufferings of the downtrodden. We are grateful to their families as they gave us the premises and funding to renovate the clinic respectively.
A special ramp is provided for wheelchairs to make the Clinic accessible. The Clinic will serve the poor in the fields of Physio Therapy, Gynecology, Orthopedics, Psychiatry, Counselling, Pediatrics and General Medicine.
The need to have our own Clinic was felt, as the residents of our Shelter Homes needed to visit government Hospitals every other day for their ailments. This was a tedious process as everyday we had to transport them to and fro and await our turn at the crowded Government Hospitals. Now, along with our residents, all the other under privileged persons can avail of the facilities free of cost. Free transport will also be provided to those who cannot afford to come to the Clinic on their own.
We have roped in volunteer Doctors in the various streams of medicine, who will make themselves available at the clinic on prescribed days. Our emphasis is focused on the PwDs and initially we plan to set up a basic Physiotherapy Centre. We need equipment for this purpose and we have posted on social media the needs of the medical Centre.
All those who have a heart for these underprivileged people may contact us for your generous donations. All donations to STREET PROVIDENCE are eligible for 50% rebate under Sec. 80-G of the Indian Income Tax Act.
