We provide health services through OPDs for the local slum population. We provide holistic health care to senior citizens at preventative and curative levels as well as with social, recreational and skills-oriented activities. In addition, we work with adolescent girls from slum communities to educate them about health, nutrition, & life skills and to train them in skills that will give them opportunities to earn higher incomes to support themselves and their families.
