A new Smile on Wheels Mobile hospital project has been launched in Sonbhadra district, Uttar Pradesh.
The project will make healthcare services accessible at the doorsteps of families living in 12 villages in the district, including Baburi, banki, Suwarsuth, Lahwua and Cherui. The people living in these villages are mostly agricultural labourers who belong to the lowest socio-economic strata.
Powered with a team of qualified doctor, nurse, lab technician, pharmacist, driver and a group of volunteers, the project aims to benefit over 26,000 children and their families directly every year.
HDB Financial Services has partnered with Smile Foundation in providing the much-needed healthcare support to the less-privileged population of the aforementioned areas through this project.
Smile on Wheels programme at present has 39 operational projects in 623 remote villages and urban slums across India, directly benefiting 580,000 lives directly in a year
Smile Foundation is an NGO in India directly benefitting over 600,000 children and their families every year, through more than 250 live welfare projects on education, healthcare, livelihood and women empowerment, in over 950 remote villages and slums across 25 states of India.
