Who is starving with the disease and hungry you cannot teach the mantra and the process. It is nonsense. They need a piece of bread and they need a little medical kit, and something. Try to serve them…it is called in telugu, Madhava Seva. Bhagavan seva.

Free Medical Camps

By providing free medical screening, diagnosis and treatment, SSGT has addressed and treated many diseases. Direct intervention and preventative education have improved the overall standard of health in and around the surrounding villages in Andhra Pradesh. During these clinics, western doctors from Germany, Austria, and the US have collaborated with local government doctors, donating their time and service to support the SSGT mission.

Navya Sri Eye Clinic

As early as 2001, SSGT has been conducting free medical eye camps to the poor villagers in India. In November of that year, it had operated on over 1,000 patients inflicted with many ocular disorders. All patients were provided food, accommodations, transportation and glasses free of cost.

In 2007, with the support of SSGT, the Navya Sri Eye Clinic was created. Named after the daughter of the SSGT founding chairman, Sri Kaleshwar, the first ever eye clinic in this area was established. Its goal is to provide state of the art surgery for the elimination and prevention of various eye diseases such as cataracts.

Thousands of surgeries have been performed, and the clinic provides much needed ocular health care. Essential medical equipment, ambulance vehicles, operating facilities and support staff, have been provided to meet this overwhelming need of people who would otherwise not be able to afford proper care. Since its creation, the clinic has doubled its physical location size, and its surgeries have expanded significantly within its first 18 months.

Since its creation, Sri Kaleshwar has personally donated vehicles, ambulances and mini buses for transportation of patients, doctors and emergency purposes. As the hospital grows and the needs increase, addtional vehicles are planned to support the eye clinic’s growth.

Children with HIV

Recently SSGT and its chairman Sri Kaleshwar have provided much needed support to several organizations within its district, such as the Krushi Village development to help children inflicted with the HIV virus. Providing much needed nutritional suppliments and medical assistance, SSGT continues to support this growing problem in India. Although a permanent cure for this disease has yet to be discovered, assistance continues to support those with the virus and research into its eventual cure.

When addressing these children, Sri Kaleshwar had this to say:
 “Each and every person should come forward to help the people who are suffering with the dangerous disease HIV and make them feel happy, giving self confidence for them and also make those people to turn towards God and also take minimum responsibility for the welfare of HIV effected people and in eradicating this dangerous disease”.
