Healing of hearts at
On 28th June, 2009, Sunday at 10 a.m, the students of Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Mandir, presented a skit throwing light on the present health scenario and heart patients in a packed auditorium of Sabar Dairy before a huge audience and eminent personalities of Gujarat .
     The child patient of the drama Jayendra was a bright student. His parents had a lot of expectations and dreams for their son.
But for past many months Jayendra would get tired. Slowly his state worsened so much that he had to stop playing and also quit school. They took him to the doctors who diagnosed a hole in the heart and told the expenditure for the treatment would be around 2 lacs.
     Living on a very small income by doing labour work in a village like Bayad, how could they ever handle a sudden situation of a serious heart disease involving an enormous expenditure?
     Seeing his deteriorating condition at times his parents would literally cry. When the modern hospitals of the city close their doors for the poor, then there is no saviour for them except God. This real life drama presented by the students brought tears to many eyes.
     Showing the realities of present day, the skit was not merely a piece of imagination but the real story of a 10th std student Jayendra of Bayad taluka. It was 4 years back that the hole was detected and his parents knocked the doors of all big hospitals, but who would treat without money?
     During this time in 2007, a free heart camp was organized at Modasa by the Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital. Jayendra came there and then was operated at Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital at Rajkot. Giving a new life to thousands of people like Jayendra, this hospital is trying to reach various places to the poor and needy people.
Recently such a camp was organized at the Sabar dairy at Himmatnagar. Around 815 patients were checked up free at the camp Out of this 106 were given dates for operation at Rajkot. Not only this around 142 patients got the facility of angiography.
Following this principle Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital has completed 2500 heart operations totally free till date.
     Usually the registrations are done before the camp. Poverty and disease have widely engulfed this arid border area of Sabarkatha.
May be because of this, though the registrations were 700, the real number of patients that turned up were around 815.
     To support the cause of the hospital, there were eminent personalities of the society. Among the dignitaries present were Collector of Sabarkantha Sri N. Thennarasan, M.D. of GCMMF Shri B.M.Vyas, M.P. Mahendrasingh Chauhan, Chairman of Asian Granites Hasmukh Patel,and Chairman of Sabar Dairy Shamalbhai Patel. They all appreciated the noble cause of the hospital.
