Homeopathic Medical Care:
Since 1987 Mission decided to provide medical help through Homeopathy and has been healing and curing hundreds of thousands of urban slum, street dwellers and poor villagers in the project areas of Sunderbans. Two Mobile Clinics visit more than 35 slums of Calcutta and treat destitute on the streets. 11 Outdoor Clinics in the slums cater to thousands of ailing patients living in the scanty slums. More than 200,000 patients are treated free of cost in both the urban slums and also in the remotest villages of Sunderbans where medical facilities are rare.
Acute and chronic diseases are successfully cured through the team of expert homeopathic doctors and paramedics without creating any side effects.
Our doctors collaborate with diagnostic centers for pathology testing and provide referral services to other health agencies for advanced treatments as needed.
