RADHESHYAM MORARKA MEDICAL INSTITUTE

A healthy society is a strong and vibrant society. It has ambitious plans for future and means to translate them into reality. On the contrary, a society high in number of unhealthy and physically weak people cannot live up to modern day challenges where mere living cannot be the sole objective of life. Unfortunately, India faces daunting challenges on the health front which is affecting our march to be a successful, industrialized and powerful nation. Sewajyoti believes that governments alone cannot wipe out diseases and unhealthy living conditions prevailing in many parts of the country. These social problems need every citizen’s collective involvement and support to be done away with. More importantly, social service organizations, charity bodies, trusts, volunteers, religious organisations and other good souls must come together to get India rid of age old menace of diseases and a lack of hygiene.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in 1946 as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Sewajyoti agrees with the observation and our activities in the field of health, medicine and well-being are articulated keeping this in mind.

    

Until recently, Nawalgarh presented a disappointing picture as far as treatment of serious diseases was concerned. The city had no hospital that was equipped with modern technology, machines and expertise to deal with the modern day maladies. People inflicted with heart disease, cancer and other serious problems had no other option but to go to Jaipur and other cities wasting lots of money, time and effort. Realising this, Sewajyoti decided to build a large hospital with modern health facilities and expert doctors to bring relief to the people of Nawalgarh and its adjoining areas. The 30 bed hospital, named Radheshyam Morarka Medical Institute was inaugurated in December 2006. Since then, it has provided high quality medical facilities to lakhs of people in the area. Rising demand necessitated expansion of facilities which resulted in new cottage wards being built in the subsequent years.

A cure-all institute in rural habitat

Radheshyam Morarka Medical Institute has facilities to treat heart disease, cancer, asthma, bone diseases, child diseases and women’s ailments. It has in-patient and out-patient consultation services, hospitalization facility and emergency services. Surgeries are also performed by expert in-house surgeons. The hospital has also tried to reach out to patients living in villages and hamlets by organizing extensive health consultation, treatment and surgery camps. These camps, attended by high number of people, are bringing about a gradual change on the health map of the area.

Many political and social personalities have visited the hospital and were impressed with the facilities available here. They included the former Vice President of India, Late Sh. Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, Minister of State for Health, Rajasthan, Dr. Rajkumar Sharma and former Speaker of Rajasthan Assembly, Ms. Sumitra Singh.

    

Radheshyam Morarka Medical Institute has given special attention to disease which are seen 'differently' in the society due to lack of awareness. It has a centre to attend HIV Aids patients and a separate centre for treatment of tuberculosis. We believe that society needs to be informed about different aspects of such diseases so that the patients concentrate on the healing process rather than fighting the social taboos unnecessarily linked to their conditions.

The hospital also conducts health camps in its premises. In such camps, experienced doctors from Mumbai and Jaipur have provided their valuable services to local people. Without such arrangements, such specialized services are generally out of ordinary citizens' reach, especially in the rural areas.

CENTRE FOR THE DISABLED

Sewajyoti runs District Handicapped Rehabilitation Centre at Nawalgarh where number of relief and rehabilitation activities are conducted for the disabled. There is an interesting story behind establishment of this centre. In 2004, Sewajyoti had organized a large handicapped camp in Jhunjhunu district which was the only camp of this kind in the area. Thousands of disabled people attended the camp where Sewajyoti provided different kinds of services to the needy, including medical consultation, medicines and equipment. The camp was a huge success and received accolades in the media as well as the administration. Following this, central government invited Sewajyoti to assist in running its schemes for the disabled in the area.

Subsequently, Sewajyoti established District Handicapped Rehabilitation Centre at Nawalgarh (Jhunjhunu) on 1st October, 2005. This project enjoys support from Social Justice and Empowerment Ministry, Government of India and is run under the guidance of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Vikalang Jan Sansthan, New Delhi. 

Under this project, the centre is running the following schemes for the welfare of handicapped and disabled people:

NARBADA DEVI MEDICAL CENTRE

Narbada Devi Morarka Charitable Trust has been providing free medical facilities to the employees of Dwarikesh Sugar Industries Limited and the local people in Bijnor district of Uttar Pradesh. On 23rd October 1994, Narbada Devi Morarka Charitable Trust was founded with the objective of conducting health and rural development programmes in the area. Since then, the trust has played significant role in providing relief to people affected by diseases.

As its activities received encouraging response and support from people, it was felt that the area should have a proper hospital to provide extensive health care facilities. Accordingly, Narbada Devi Medical Centre was inaugurated in Dwarikesh Nagar (Near Nagina, Najibabad, District Bijnor) on 10th February 2000. This three bed medical centre provides hospitalization facility to those who need it. The hospital has modern equipments and diagnostic facilities apart from the services of two experienced doctors and two compounders.

     

Narbada Devi Medical Centre conducts regular health check-ups on employees of Dwarikesh group and also provides vaccination facilities. It also organises health awareness and blood donation camps. People from nearby areas also benefit from free health and medical camps conducted by NDMC. The hospital takes assistance from expert doctors from Apollo hospital, Fortis hospital and other renowned institutions to bring high quality consultation services to local people’s doorstep.

Dental check up camps, Heart disease check up camps, Physiotherapy camps, Eye camps, Hepatitis B vaccination camps etc. are a regular feature at Narbada Devi Medical Centre. Dwarikesh group runs two other plants in Uttar Pradesh other than in Bundki (Near Najibabad). These are in Afzalgarh (Bijnor) and Faridpur (Bareilly). Narbada Devi Morarka Charitable Trust is providing quality health facilities in these areas as well. 

NDMC has been organizing health camps since 1999 and on many occasions it works in tandem with the local administration. Apart from providing medical assistance, medicines worth lakhs have been distributed among the needy on a regular basis. Handicapped have received due attention from the trust which has organized many camps for the disabled in association with other social service organizations such as Kalyanam Karoti, Mathura, and ‘Bhagwan Mahavir Viklang Sahayata Samiti, Jaipur. Thousands of disabled people have received calipers, artificial limbs, tricycles, wheel chairs, hearing aids and other equipment to make their lives easier. Polio operations have also been conducted by doctors in the operation theatre of Narbada Devi Medical Centre. 

In year 2004, the trust organized a large family planning camp in Nagina (Bijnor) which was a great success. Many such camps have been organized since then. 

HEALTH AND SURGICAL CAMPS

On one hand, Radheshyam Morarka Medical Institute provides its services at the hospital campus, on the other hand it is reaching out to people living in the nearby villages through its medical vans, ambulances and health camps. The medical camps have benefitted lakhs of people in different villages and cities of the Jhunjhunu district. Nawalgarh, Jhunjhunu, Khetri, Udaipurwati and many other towns have witnessed people coming in large numbers to attend medical camps in which senior and experienced doctors and surgeons from RMMI as well as other prestigious medical institutions participate.
 
Camps organized by Sewajyoti and RMMI are mainly of three categories. Consultation camps where large number of people are checked for various diseases. Camps to detect and diagnose cancer, women’s diseases, children’s diseases, ENT problems etc. fall in this category. Medicines are also made available to such patients on the location itself. 
 
    
 
Another category of camps are surgical camps wherein people are operated upon for problems such as cataract. Sewajyoti also conducts family welfare camps to promote the cause of ‘chhota pariwar, sukhi pariwar.’ Gifts are also given to people who come for surgeries. A large number of people, both men and women, attend such camps. 
 
Sewajyoti also conducts blood donation camps on a regular basis to encourage people to donate blood. Similarly, disabled receive medical consultation, and aids such as calipers, artificial limbs, tricycles, hearing aids etc. Pulse Polio camps are also a regular feature of Sewajyoti’s programmes during which children are given polio drops. 
 
Reaching out to people
 
Sewajyoti had started conducting such camps in 2004 when a large free camp for the disabled was organized in Nawalgarh. The district administration provided wholehearted support to the programme and its unprecedented success led to organization of many other camps, dealing with different kind of health problems. They are now an integral part of our strategy to provide health facility to the people living in far-flung areas. Whenever necessary, Sewajyoti has taken help from similar organizations such as Bhagvan Mahavir Cancer Hospital, Jaipur and Dr. R M Sahay Memorial Eye Hospital, Jaipur.
 
Sekhawati is also known for popular festivals such as the Lohargal Mela, Salasar Mela, Khatu Shyam Mela, Bawalia Baba Mela and Baba Ramdev Mela. Devotees gather in large numbers to attend these festivals. Sewajyoti conducts health consultation camps there to attend people needing medical attention.
