The one who heals has always been considered to be closest to God and the hand that heals is directed by a pious heart full of love, kindness, empathy and divinity. Healing is a divine act we wish to do with profound humility and knowledge of our own limitations and the probable odds. But we also face it with limitless faith because there is no excuse for not trying. Guided by the belief that every life has equal value we focus on improving people’s health. We, at SNCF, have been making our humble contributions towards the field of health and medical care in many ways because we believe helping is not charity, it is an opportunity.
Over the last three decades, our initiatives in the domain of Blood Donation have been based on the thought that 'Blood should flow in veins and not in drains'. With hundreds of thousands of units already donated, the marathon task is underway on a regular basis to reach many more milestones. In 2011-12 more than 50,000 units were donated in various parts of the world by our volunteers in over 390 camps organized for the purpose. It further humbles us to state that we have been honoured with the distinction of being the 'Highest Blood Donating Group' by Sh.Ghulam Nabi Azad, the honourable Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of India, for the year 2010-11. The World Health Organization (WHO) has also appreciated our distinguished and invaluable contribution by saying that 'It is this kind of people who can make all the difference to the society at large.'
Sant Nirankari Charitable Foundation has again been awarded on the occasion of World Blood Donor Day i.e. on 14th June 2013, as one of the leading NGO for organizing voluntary blood donation drive. SNCF activities regarding Blood Donation were applauded and an award was given by Dr. A.K. Walia, Hon'ble Minister of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of NCT of Delhi.
HOSPITALS AND DISPENSARIES
With the first dispensary set up in early 1950’s, we have come a long way to build many more such havens of health and healing. In many Allopathic and Ayurvedic Dispensaries, path labs and health care centres, consultation, treatment and medicines are made available free of cost or at very nominal costs. We also plan to set up a 500 bed Super Specialty Hospital in the Nirankari Complex, on a land of about ten acres, where quality health services shall be provided. SNCF also looks forward to extend these efforts and serve the society by developing a Post Graduate Institute of Medical research and a Medical College. A team of qualified and dedicated architects, medicos and other related professionals has already started working on this ambitious project.
MOBILE HEALTH CARE
To reach out to people in remote and inaccessible locations, SNCF has been organizing many primary health check-up camps in various parts of the country. Many free eye camps have also been organized in the same course of action, benefitting many underprivileged sections of the society.
