Healthcare for those in need has always been a passion of mine growing up. Women’s preventative medicine has been historically underserved throughout India. Vikasa Tarangini in Bharath has specific projects with dedicated hospitals that have allowed me to serve this community which I am so passionate about. Serving with this group is an experience I will never forget.

My name is Bhamam Motilal. I speak Mathura, a scriptless language. I am studying in 9th grade. I am from Mandgalsingh Thanda (tribal settlement). I am studying here from primary school. Before joining this school, we used to herd cattle and work as a daily labor. I would like to reach greater heights in my life and I will never forget this school. Our teachers are staying with us and providing excellent guidance. My goal is to become a teacher and pass on the knowledge to students.

My friends who did not join gurukulam are now living a low standard life taking care of cattle and whiling away their time, and living in poverty. I am proud to be educated and live in a metropolitan city enjoying the comforts.

My name is Upplapati Subba Lakshmi. I reside in Vijaya Durga Nagar in Vijayawada. One day, VT volunteers came to our hous e and announced about the camp and motivated to avail the opportunity. So I went to the camp. They detected a lump in the breast. They guided me to NRI hospital. A biopsy was done and they told that I had cancer in first stage. I took treatment and now I am happy and healthy. My heart felt gratitude to Vikasa Tarangini and the team.

Before the JIMS facility opened we had to travel so far away for quality treatments. It is very expensive and time consuming. We are very happy now because this hospital is very close to our place.We are getting good treatment for all our health problems.
We came to know about JIMS through our relatives. I have gone through appendicitis operation here. Doctors have treated us with utmost care. This hospital is very reasonable for poor people like us where we cannot afford expensive treatments. I am recovering now.
