Building Our Clinic in Jharkhand

Throughout the year, we are sharing updates as we build a health clinic and training center in the Indian state of Jharkhand. We invite you to follow along as the project unfolds and comes to life.

#BuildTogether2018 is an ambitious and altruistic project that is dear to our hearts as it will allow us to serve more people in need in one of the poorest regions in India.

See all updates


In the remote state of Jharkhand — often called “the land of the forests” — 40% of the population lives below the poverty line. Very few other organizations provide help to this region, and the needs far exceed available resources.

Thanks to the support of our generous donors, Karuna-Shechen is building a two-story facility that will serve as a medical clinic and training center for the people of Jharkhand.

The construction is underway and is scheduled for completion by the end of the year!

 

The clinic — scheduled to open in Spring 2019 — will save lives and improve the well-being of people in need through general medical and gynecological services, acupuncture, physiotherapy, radiology services, and a pharmacy. It will also offer optical services, including eye exams and corrective glasses.

The new clinic will also be used as a training center for villagers and women’s empowerment. It will include offices where our team will coordinate regional community projects, including education, vocational training, mobile clinics, and clean water initiatives.

Your support is essential!
