One Mobile clinic reaches to slums and street corners treating an average of 200 + patients every day. There are close to 18 outdoor slum clinics in the city of Kolkata catering to thousands of patients who are most economically deprived. Annually all these outreach medical programs take care of 180,000 patients for free.
Patients Brought From Remote Villages To Kolkata For Treatment

In certain serious cases the patient is brought from the remote villages of Sundarban to Kolkata for the purpose of treatment. One such case is that of Gosaba girl Dipali. She could not walk properly on both feet and on top of that the veins in her eyes were drying up. She was brought to Kolkata and adequate treatment was given to her. Now she can walk with ease with the help of custom made medical shoes from well-known medical appliance manufacturers in Kolkata. Prolonged eye treatment has given her great benefit. She can see much better now. Her eyes have been saved. There are many such people like Dipali who have been receiving such help from the Mission free of charge. The mission in collaboration with the Nihar Munshi Eye foundation provides various eye treatment facilities and operations to the less privileged.
