Medical Camps in Gujerat, India

Our Mission
Our mission to serve the poor and deprived section of the society by providing them the basic amenities like healthcare, education, food and shelter that equip individuals to become an equal partner in the progress of the nation and by helping the sufferers of natural calamities to move towards a world free from hunger, ignorance, deprivation and exploitation.   
Medical Camps & Eye Clinics
This year we have overtaken our target of 30,000 people having attended, and been cared for, by our Medical Camps and Eye Clinics. Congratulations to Thakor Patel, Nimesh Gandhi and their team.
“I wish more people could be here to witness the results of their generosity. To see the joy in someone’s face when the bandages are removed from their eyes and they can see again is the most wonderful experience you could have.” Thakor Patel
UV Water Filtration Systems
These are being installed in schools in remote villages where lack of clean water causes disease and discourages children from going to school. This is part of our vision to strengthen education. The India team have just started this project and have so far completed 6 units.
In parts of India, children aren’t permitted to attend school without uniforms, books, pens and pencils. However many poor families cannot afford to buy them, so they cannot send their children to school. Your donation has enabled us to distribute free education kits to thousands of children.
At the Dru Foundation Trust we have been operating a major health service initiative which, by 2017 has organized the following activities:
  • 71 medical camps.
  • Treated a total of 32,950 patients.
  • Performed a total of 2,146 cataract operations.
  • Distributed over 7,028 pairs of free prescription spectacles.
  • 10,500 children were provided with free education kits so they could attend school (1,618 in 2015 and 2,000 in 2016 and 2383 students 2017.)
  • About 72 students and including nurses are adopted for their education fees for year 2017
  • Every year about 3,600 peoples benefited from the food distribution project
  • Every year about 2,000 peoples benefited from the clothing distribution project
  • Provided assistance for students with education and nursing training.
  • Distributed fresh food to underprivileged patients twice a month.
  • Provided treatment for underprivileged patients at charity rates in the Dispensary of Dr. Kanubhai Patel.
  • Provided X-ray, Sonography & Medical Laboratory Tests to economically challenged people at 50% concessional rates.
  • Giving relief to patient in their hospital bills.
  • Giving relief to Dialysis patients to their treatment.

Malnutrition is common in this area, so each villager who attends the medical camp is given a food parcel and nutritional supplements such as iron, vitamin C and multivitamins.

Ravjibhai, a 65 year old local farmer, came to the clinic with breathing difficulties and suspected cataracts. He said that he had always had faith that God would help him to find treatment, ‘This medical camp is the answer to my prayer.’

Congenital defects, routinely corrected in the West, are common. 12 year old Vijay has had a cleft palate from birth and cannot speak properly. The World Peace Flame financed his orthodontic treatment and the operation to correct his hare-lip. Other children and old people are receiving free operations for eye defects, cataracts and orthopaedic treatment.

Shantiben doesn't know exactly how old she is. She lives alone in Moldhara village with no close family to take her to hospital for her cataracts and crippling osteoporosis. The World Peace Flame staff organised transport for her to visit the doctor and receive treatment.

Our aim is to support people and the environment and these humanitarian projects are an essential part of our vision. We believe we can change the world by giving people the tools to transform themselves. In this way we hope to build a better world for all mankind.

The World Peace Flame is dedicated to achieving peace through a process of education and the practical support of grassroots peace initiatives. We aim to inspire people everywhere that the individual plays a crucial role in creating peace, at every level.

Chantal Elson for example, collected money for 162 cataract operations by climbing to the top of 250 mountains in Scotland which is the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest seven times, a distance of 700 miles.
