Last month, we fortunately attended the Medical Health check up camp at Sahyog Trust, Rajendranagar 20 kms. away from Himatnagar on the way towards Shamlaji Temple which was organized by IMA Himatnagar Branch. There we came to know that more than 450 Mentally Retarded Patients were taken care by a fully dedicated volunteers and trained staff. We have been informed that it is one of the Largest of its kind in the India. Office Bearers and Members of IMA Himatnagar Branch are very much involved in the Activities of Sahyog Trust. They are also running Rehabilitation center for the Leprosy patients which are neglected by the society. They are trying not only to help them in rehabilitation but also in upliftment of their quality of life by providing a various opportunity and making them self dependant.
We are highly impressed and have appreciated their Noble work for the betterment of the society. We request our Doctor Members to visit this campus atleast once.
