The camp would screen patients and schedule free heart surgeries and procedures for them in the Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital Rajkot - a state-of-the-art facility for the economically challenged strata of society. In this hospital, all diagnosis, procedures, surgeries, post operative care and medicine are provided absolutely free of cost to all patients irrespective of caste, creed or religion.  

 

And like all Sathya Sai Service Projects this one too has a deep spiritual core which effortlessly combines the Philosophy of Healing with the Science of Love. Apart from the most advanced medical equipments and treatment methods the hospital is equipped with a massive prayer hall where patients, their families and the staff congregate to pray for each other’s health and well being. Says Dr. Varsha Shah a cardiac surgeon with over 34 years of practice and who has been associated with the Rajkot hospital for the past 12 years, “The hospital has an eternal vibration of Divine Power. Nowhere else in the world have I seen patients walking on the second day of the surgery! This place truly has the blessing of the Almighty.”

True to the Sathya Sai tradition the camp began with the reverberating chants of the Vedas and Bhajans charging the atmosphere with a verve of love and Divine Energy. These invigorating prayers offered peace and hope to the patients like Ahmed Janjani from Ulhasnagar.

 

Ahmed is a 45 year old father of two. He battled a neurological ailment for 5 years months ago and has now been asked to undergo a bypass since 2 years. His condition has rendered him unable to work, the expenses of his medicines have forced his children to quit school.

 

He came to the camp with the hope of changing his life…This hope is not farfetched at all since the loving and state-of-the-art care provided at the Rajkot hospital has  changed lives.

 

 

Says Rahul Tiwari who had got his 3 year old son operated for 3 holes in the heart several years ago, “This is not  a hospital but rather a temple – in an ordinary temple people worship God but in this one the hospital staff worship patients.” The dignitaries present at the event hailed the firm commitment, and round the clock service rendered by the hospital staff and the Seva Dal Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organization as being more important than mere monetary aid to make this hospital comparable to some of the best cardiac treatment centres in the world.

Even the volunteers of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organization Maharashtra and Goa had worked for weeks together with the teams of HPCL in spreading awareness of the camp, pre screening the patients according to the economic and medical criteria provided by Rajkot, registering the cases and numerous other details of the camp. The camp had facilities for 2D scans and ECGs. Close to 1300 people from the remotest corners of Maharashtra were screened before and on the day of the camp.  120 patients were given confirmed dates for surgery at Rajkot. Additionally about 20 people have been asked to do further tests after which they would be screened again. 

 

Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital in Rajkot, where all the shortlisted patients would be operated is a  a state-of-the-art facility for the economically challenged strata of society. In this hospital, all diagnosis, procedures, surgeries, post operative care and medicine are provided absolutely free of cost to all patients irrespective of caste, creed or religion.  And like all Sathya Sai Service Projects this one too has a deep spiritual core which effortlessly combines the Philosophy of Healing with the Science of Love. Apart from the most advanced medical equipments and treatment methods the hospital is equipped with a massive prayer hall where patients, their families and the staff congregate to pray for each other’s health and well being. Says Dr. Varsha Shah a cardiac surgeon with over 34 years of practice and who has been associated with the Rajkot hospital for the past 12 years, “The hospital has an eternal vibration of Divine Power. Nowhere else in the world have I seen patients walking on the second day of the surgery! This place truly has the blessing of the Almighty.”

 

The humongous humanitarian work at Rajkot Heart hospital confirms that the greatest deeds, the most profound changes in the world can be accomplished only through loving hearts!
