Care For The Sick
In many poverty-stricken and remote villages across South Asia, medical care is unavailable. Many have to walk many kilometers to receive even basic treatments, and even in this case, lower-caste villagers would not likely be able to pay for needed services. In light of this, IGL provides free or affordable medical care through village clinics.
At our main headquarters in Salem, Tamil Nadu, we operate the Sharon Community Hospital, which provides a wide-range of treatments, including surgery and cancer care. We also have a bus of medical supplies and equipment that we deploy to remote villages throughout India to conduct health screenings, basic prescriptions, eyeglasses and health training. We also host teams of medical professionals from around the world who volunteer their services directly.
