This will give benefit to more than 2 lakhs residents at Kuttanadu islands in Alappuzha – serves as an immense fortune to locals.

The initiative of converting a vessel into a hospital has benefited the children and elderly living around backwaters, as it is difficult for them to visit hospitals located on the mainland.
The islands in the rural area are remotely located and no vehicle can reach there. Patients face difficulty as it is surrounded with water. The floating hospital is of great help to them.
Nearly 20 small and big islands near Kochi and around 11 islands near Alleppey have benefited from the mobile hospital.
The mission aims to improve the availability and access to quality health care for people, especially poor women and children residing in rural areas.
