Heart camp in SURAT


Revered Sri Ramesh Oza, Sri Indravadan Modi,
Sir Kanubhai Patel and other prominent guests

A sincere effort to bring smiles
in the lives of people of Surat
There are many charitable hospitals in our country, but Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital is different from all of them. At every step the patient is treated as God and hence the institution has the blessings of the almighty. So the common man today is relieved.”
     On 20th of Dec’09, there was a mega heart Camp organized at Bajipura near Surat. When the revered Shri Ramesh Oza spoke about the hospital, there was a look of satisfaction on  the faces of people for having brought their dear ones to the right place. In the present times of modernization and commercialization there is no place for service. Hence a disease like heart ailment is really taxing for the common man. If such a disease strikes a family which cannot afford even a square meal a day there are only two options left for him either to silently watch his dear one suffering or to sell whatever he has to save his dear one!
     But believing strongly in the dictum “Manav Seva is Madhav Seva” Sri Sathya Sai Baba advised his followers ‘The poor in the society are deprived and are suffering, if you want to do Service, then Serve these people… ’In keeping with Swami’s philosophy of “Service to man is Service to God.” The operations costing around 1.5 to 2 lacs are done totally free.
     To reach up to the people of the remotest areas, the hospital organizes heart camps at various districts. Such a camp was organized at Surat where more then 1300 patients were examined. This was the first camp in Gujarat where such a huge number of cardiac patients were examined. Among those examined around 400 patients were to be operated at Rajkot. The estimated cost of this is around 7 crore. Not only this, around 200 patients got the benefit of angiography also.
     Revered Shri Ramesh Oza, diamond merchant, Sri Asit Mehta, leading person of Jain Community, Shri Sevantilal Shah, the leader of entire Patidar Samaj. Shri Laljibhai Patel, Mathurbhai Sevani, Chairman of Cadila Pharmaceutical, Shri Indravadan Modi, Shri Vallabh Kasodria and Shri Manubhai Patel were present at the camp to appriciated hospital seva.
This camp became significant in many ways. On one hand for the first time 1300 patients were examined, which was a true example of service. At the same time the service oriented people of society gave a supporting hand to the mission and proved that the “Bhamashas” still exist in society! The famous personality in the diamond industry Shri Anubhai Jagani contributed 51 lakhs and Shri Manubhai Ballar contributed 11 lakhs.
     In the Surat camp right from registrations to the food arrangements was done by Sumul Dairy. The Sathya Sai Samiti at Bardoli and the entire Patidar Samaj joined hands to see that maximum people take advantage of this camp. The students of Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Mandir, Ahmedabad presented a thought provoking skit on heart ailment and the prevalent commercialisation in the medical sector. Revered Shri Ramesh Oza who had visited Puttaparthi was really impressed by the works of Baba. . Out of the patients examined in the previous camp organized at Surat, till date 322 operations have been successfuly performed .
