Its been a long journey; starting out as a humble hospital with few staff, to a 50 bedded hospital with more than 64 tribal staff and a well organized community health team working at the grass roots....
The institution would never have grown without the willingness of the tribal people to work for their own community. The team has always stretched its boundaries to achieve the goal of being a better health care provider for the tribal community of the Gudalur valley.
We strongly stand by the vision of being "A hospital FOR the tribals; BY the tribals”
Thank you all for being a part of this journey. With so many hurdles in our way, the journey could only be travelled with your support & encouragement.
We are happy to have a senior Pediatrician, Dr.Sheila, join the team of doctors. Dr. Evelyn joining the Dental team has helped provide dental service at the hospital without any discontinuity. Mr.Sunu joined us as counselor for the Sickle cell programme. Priya & Vinetha, both Paniya girls, have joined the Disability team. Anand completed his computer training and has joined the staff.
It is a matter of pride that Bindu and Sijitha, both Paniya girls have joined for the D. Pharm course at John Enoch College of Pharmacy, Trivandrum. Thanks to the continued support from the Poristes Stiftung, it is possible to send student out for para medical training courses.
And finally we have permission to start Auxillary Nursing and Midwifery (ANM) course. The school was inaugurated on Nov 9th by the District Collector. It comes as a result of 3 years of sincere efforts at various levels to get the necessary approvals.
