Medical Programme
................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, we dispense medicines to the underprivileged
people at a concessional rate at Sanjivani Office.
Our medical program has been receiving continuous response from Senior Citizens who
save over 80% on the MRP of medicines.
Our other beneficiaries include patients with limited means, senior citizens, cancer
patients, etc.
A total of 2500 visits of patients availed the benefits of this program.
We purchased 150+ medicines at a cost of approximately Rs. 4 lakhs.
Medical distribution is done under the supervision of our Trustee Dr. Sandip Shah.
Our senior-most volunteer Ms. Sarojben Shah visits Nair hospital among other Municipal
Hospitals in the city.
We extend Financial Assistance to patients under guidance of Medical Social Workers.
Everyday, Sanjivani provides Vegetable Curry as part of a lunch meal to 30 relatives of
outstation patients at Nair Hospital. It has been doing this for the last 30 years.
Sanjivani receives requests for medicines from Homes for under privileged children,
Mentally Defficient Children, and NGOs working with General Hospitals.
Medicines received as samples from Doctors or companies are distributed for free.
   
Educational Assistance  
With higher education becoming expensive and a growing demand for assistance,
Sanjivani offers significant support in this area of education.
The trust follows a systematic distribution of scholarship: After the declaration of HSC /
SSC results, scholarship forms are distributed amongst the families that fall under our
target socio-economic profile.
To ease the process for these families, the requirements of documents are kept to a
minimum. We require them to provide:
 
educational records (mark sheets)
originals of salary certificate & fees receipt
Based on these criteria and our own verification, a final interview is conducted with
parents to decide the eligibility and amount of assistance.
This year we circulated approximately 200 scholarship forms across Mumbai.
After assessing a student's family background and socio-economic conditions, we
provided scholarship to 125 students who are mostly pursuing technical courses.
Our scholarship program has benefited students from economically-disadvantaged
backgrounds i.e:
 
students having a single parent
earning member of the family has expired
parents are suffering from severe illness like cancer, kidney failure or TB.
Since the last two years, we have extended financial assistance to children affected by or
children of leprosy patients at Acworth Leprosy Hospital.
Unfortunately, the demand for financial help always outstrips the supply of funds available
to us. We'd love your participation to help us extend our distribution.
   
Social Welfare  
 
You and I can afford to get that stylish Rs. 1000 shirt from Shopper's Stop, but for a lot of families
who live around us and provide for our essential services, this is how much they spend in a month on food, shelter and other basic needs. They cannot afford to buy clothes they need everyday to go school or work, let alone buying them for special occasions like a family wedding or a religious
festival.
 
At Sanjivani, we try to bridge that gap by accepting new as well as used clothes, clean them if
needed, sort them and redistribute them to people who most need this assistance.
