HEALTH UNIT

Sadan has a humble “health Wing”, mainly the OPD, dealing all patients with love and compassion. The wing has earned a name for fair dealing and positive approach. Patients come for free consultation from far off places of UP, Utranchal, Haryana & Panjab. Popularly known as “Sai Baba” hospital, a large number of orthopedic patients come for balanced opinion and treatment. Besides the free consultation, the unit has a clinical laboratory manned by a senior lab technician, a 300 mA X-Ray Machine and state of the art Dental chair.There are six observation beds, but the patients requiring Indoor treatment are taken to Nursing Homes in Jagadhari /Yamuna Nagar. Ambulance service is available round the clock for this purpose.

Emergency services are provided round the clock for adopted patients only. The serious patients are transported to hospitals/nursing homes in the nearby twin cities of Jagadhari/ Yamuna Nagar. Indoor treatment of the patients is sponsored according to the economical status of the patients.

Out Patient work:
The Outpatient starts at 8 am in the summers and 8.30 am in the winters with Aunkaram and singing of Bhajans in “Stuti” of Lord Ganesha and Guru Baba, followed by “Sarva Dharma Prarathana”. The Vibhuti Parsadam is then distributed and the patients are made to sit comfortably, men and women separately. The patients are seen on first-come-first-serve basis using a digital token display system. The adopted patients, toddlers and senior citizens (>65 yrs of age) are given priority.
Anti-tubercular treatment:
Since the beginning in April 1993, a total of 143 patients (average: 06 per year) of tuberculosis (Pulmonary and extra Pulmonary) have been diagnosed in adopted population of the three villages. The breakup of these cases is as follows: *Healed and rehabilitated: 127 *Recurrence: 04 (Treated subsequently) *Died due to the problem: 06 *Treatment discontinued by pts.: 06

As per legal obligation, the X-ray facility in the Sadan Hospital and the X-Ray technician are registered with Bhabha Atomic Centre, Mumbai and Atomic Energy Regulation Board of Govt. of India for monitoring the X-Rays exposure to the technician.
Some facts about rural Health services:
a) Common ailments: Contrary to the common belief, the rural women are found to be commonly suffering from Hysterical neurosis. Worst of all, the family members don’t understand it and get exploited by unscrupulous nursing homes. Second common problem is Epilepsy due to Neuro-cystecercosis.
b) The problem of alcoholism is taking a toll on the socio-economical milieu of poverty and undernourishment of family members, domestic violence etc. Death in young age due to chronic alcoholism is common. Illegal sale of liquor in the village is continuing in spite of several representations submitted to the authorities.
c) The quacks (“doctors”) are playing havoc with the psyche of the villagers. These “doctors” also work as touts for the nursing homes flourishing on illegal medical malpractice, resulting in unwarranted costly investigations and unwarranted operations such as appendectomies and hysterectomies etc.
The School Health Services:
Kindly see health under “Education”. Calcium + Vi D tablets are given to all the children of the school on regular basis. In all, a total of 21309 tablets (from class Ist to Xth) + unspecified sachets of Vit D granules (for pre-school classes) were given during the last academic year.
Indoor Patients:
As per policy, the patients from adopted villages requiring indoor treatment are admitted to various Hospital/Nursing Homes at Jagadhari/Yamuna Nagar for different problems. Besides, the financial help, these patients are given logistic support in the form of personal visits, arrangement of blood, food and transport. Financial help was given to deserving patients for their sophisticated costly laboratory investigations.
 
3. Vocational Training & Production Centre
 

Masala production Centre:

Masala (spices) production centre was established in September 1994 with the following aims in mind:
1. To provide vocation to the rural women so that their economy is improved. Three women and a village boy have been employed in the Masala Centre.
2. To educate these working women in basic hygiene so as to improve their health.
3. To provide pure high quality masalas (spices) to the society.
Strict control on quality is maintained at the point of purchasing of the raw materials and production. Each packing has a label, indicating the name of the masala, its date of manufacture, weight when packed and its cost. In case of any complaint, the material is replaced without asking any question. The sale is promoted by the members in their social circles, both at Yamuna Nagar and Chandigarh. A sale counter has also been kept in the hospital section which attracts many visitors.
Unfortunately, our application for establishing Industrial Training Institute (ITI) has not been approved because of blanket ban of Haryana Govt. on giving permission to establish new private ITI’s for the time being. With new Govt. in the centre having the agenda of development of skilled personnel, we hope we will be able to take a big leap forward in this wing of the project in near future.

1.To provide vocation to the rural women so that their economy is improved.
2. To educate these working women in basic hygiene so as to improve their health.
3. To provide pure high quality “hand ground” masalas (spices) to the society.


The chief guest on Baba’s birthday, Shri Kanwar Pal - Speaker Haryana Legislative Assembly had shown a keen interest in the products of this centre. The sale is promoted by the members in their social circles, both at Yamuna Nagar and Chandigarh. A sale counter has also been kept in the hospital section.
Employment opportunity: The various wings of the project are providing job opportunities to the adopted population. In the non-technical areas, the jobs are offered to economically weaker families of the adopted population, irrespective of caste or creed. But for the technical jobs, the applicants from the adopted villages are required to compete with others in a merit based open/transparent selection process
Besides the two doctors working on voluntary basis, there are 46 paid/contract jobs available in the project. Out of these total 48 jobs, 25 are occupied by the adopted villagers. One village woman has been engaged to run the Sadan canteen.
The details of villagers employed under various categories in the different wings of the project are given below:

“Let new India arise out of the peasants’ cottage, grasping the plough; out of the fisherman, the cobber and the sweeper. The peasant, the shoe-maker, the sweeper, and such other lower classes of India have much greater capacity for work and self-reliance than others. They have been silently working through long ages and producing the entire wealth of the land without a word of complaint”

-Sri Sathya Sai Baba

 
4. SPIRITUAL PROGRAMME
 
Highlights:

* Celebrations of all the festivals and important cultural and heritage events to inculcate in the minds of beneficiaries the importance of ancient Indian culture and inter-religion fellowship, based on multi-pluralistic Indian society.

* Sarva Dharam bhajan sessions on Sundays, Thursdays and all festivals. Suprabhatam and Nagar Sankirtan on every Sunday and festival. Narayan Sewa on the last Sunday of the month.

The spiritual programmes are the back-bone of the whole project and a source of inspiration for the volunteers to bring in a change in themselves (self-evolution) and then to bring in a change in the society. Besides inculcating the 5D’s (Duty, Discipline, Devotion Determination and Discrimination) in the children, these spiritual programmes are bringing subtle changes in the life style of the people attached to the project in various capacities.

The gains are wonderful. The darkness of “ego” of the volunteers is gradually being removed by the effulgence of sprouting “Love” in their hearts. One does hear now and then, the comments on feelings of better control of emotions, hatred and jealousy towards others.

We pray to Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba to restore the old enthusiasm in the hearts of our worthy members so that they participate in these programmes more vigorously to enjoy the bliss of taking a dip in the Ganges - the ocean of love, flowing at our doorsteps
