The impressive advances in medicines, insecure life style due to globalization, ineffective professional support service and improper and unhygienic living conditions, continue to hamper the health of an individual. Paralysis, arthritis, polio, mental retardation and related diseases need care and medication.

ASHA KENDRA - A small rural unit is under our management and is known for its clinical services to the poor and marginalized in and around district Ahmednagar. The Centre specializes in Alternate system of medicine [Ayurveda and Acupuncture] along with Allopathy. It successfully treats people suffering from paralysis, arthritis, polio, mental retardation, etc., from India and abroad.

A newly built Annexe to the Acupunture Centre provides additional in-patient facilities for physiotheraphy, panchakarma, steam sauna, oil massage, etc.

Patients at the onset are stabilized with Allopathic medications but from our observation and research we have come to the conclusion that patients respond well to Alternate medicines which do not pose any problems of side effects. It is also observed that 90% success is achieved from our system of treatment.

On an average 450 patients per day visit Asha Kendra for various treatments.

We HUMBLY APPEAL to you for funds and equipment [being discarded by hospitals or nursing homes] in good condition and useful for the Kendra.

Specialized treatment and home care support for HIV-AIDS patients is given free of charge. The Centre receives financial support to the tune of Rs. 1,00,000/- for this purpose from our sister concern Jeevan Kalyan [Medical & Charitable] Trust.

To be more effective and in tune with the need we would like to call upon you to give serious thought lending your generous support, thereby showing your willingness to share and care for those who need that extra penny of help and concern.

We request you to visit the Kendra before making any decision. We insist on this so that you can be sure for willingness to be a part of the Mission to the unfortunates who need the reassurance that Friends like you do really exist.

If you are convinced, then the emotional bonding will strengthen us to more effective services to many, many more and you will be blessed for listening to your inner-self (Atma) that desires to spread love and compassion, matched with yearning to give to those who look up to you who can.
