Follow us on Instagram for regular updates from the COVID Health Centre.
31 May - Addressing the situation of rural India at its root
In addition to the two COVID Centres in South Gujarat which can host 200-beds of critical & non-critical patients, Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care has strategised an extensive outreach programme, aimed at spreading awareness about testing, treatment options and vaccinations to address the root of rural India's COVID-19 situation.
The outreach programme represents a large-scale, sustainable model that can truly bring about social and behavioural change. It is a unique public-private model that is scalable and replicable, and maximises treatment outcomes for rural populations.

Through the support of all our donors, both the COVID Centres and their outreach initiatives have been instrumental in reducing the spread of this virus and have successfully brought down infection rates through this rural population. We thank everyone who has generously donated to make this positive difference to one of the worst affected areas in India.
11-May - New 150-Bed Facility Inaugurated
The new 150-Bed Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital COVID Care Centre was inaugurated on 11th May 2021 to continue helping the local rural community! The new facility has numerous wards which will be used to provide free treatment to patients experiencing mild to moderate symptoms. Being in a tribal region of South Gujarat away from the urban cities of India, the high quality care being provided here will set this Care Centre apart. Doors are now open to all those in need.
The new facility was virtually inaugurated in the presence of Pujya Gurudevshri Rakeshbhai by Hon’ble Governor of Gujarat, Shri Acharya Devvrat along with various other dignitaries. Click here to watch glimpses of the newly opened Centre.
5 May - Major Project Expansion (additional 150-Bed Facility) and Fundraising Target Increase
As COVID cases in rural India continue to touch new peaks, the recently opened critical COVID Health Centre has operated at full capacity since opening just 10 days ago. With 50 beds for the most critical patients fully utilised, the outpatient ward has treated 2,000+ patients till date and carried out 1,500+ CT scans to provide immediate and effective impact in the fight against COVID in this region. Please click here for a short video.
Due to the unprecedented demand, and encouraged by the overwhelming generosity of donors worldwide, Shrimad Rajchandra Love & Care will now expand the scope of its COVID relief activities by opening a further 150-bed Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital COVID Care Centre facility in the nearby area to aid less critical cases that still require comprehensive care (oxygen support, CT scans, blood/PCR tests, etc.). Our volunteers are working tirelessly around the clock so this new 150-bed SR Hospital COVID Care Centre will be up and running as early as next week!
With this in mind, we are increasing our fundraising target to an ambitious £500,000 and invite all to contribute generously and share extensively. Donations made will make a direct impact on the ground to those most in need, in the battle against COVID. Funds raised will continue to help cover costs of the COVID Health Centre in addition to set-up, essential medical equipment and treatment costs at the new 150-bed SR Hospital COVID Care Centre along with rehabilitation projects to support families whose livelihoods have been affected due to COVID. All treatment at both centres remain free for those in need.
Whilst we may not be able to save every life from COVID, together we can certainly endeavour to alleviate some of the pain and suffering of families affected by this devastating crisis. We sincerely applaud the kindness of all donors both large and small.
2 May - One Week Impact Summary
28 April - Fundraising Target Increase
Thank you to all the beautiful hearts that have contributed financially and/or raised awareness for this desperate cause. Your generous donations have raised a record breaking £125k+ in just 36 hours! This means we are now able to secure the running costs for this new 50 bed facility for an entire month.
With demand growing as cases are increasing in these villages every day, the need for this facility has never been more urgent. With your big-hearted support, we are now in a position to increase our fundraising target to £250k in order to further cover the expansion and running costs of operating this critical COVID Health Centre for more months.
Your generosity means the world to the patients receiving care - you are literally saving lives with each donation made.
This is our time to Be the Change we want to see in the world. So please continue sharing and encouraging one and all to join in this life saving project.
As the pandemic continues to rage on in India, there lies a desperate need for medical assistance in various rural and hard to reach areas of Gujarat. A new special COVID Health Centre has been set up in the Valsad District, South Gujarat in just 10 days to serve over hundreds of rural districts who have no other access to COVID care facilities.
The Health Centre opened on 25th April 2021 with 50 beds and complete facilities including ventilators, BiPap machines, high flow oxygen support, a CT scan machine and an ICU ward to support severe cases of COVID immediately.
Plans are already underway to expand the capacity to 100 beds due to the overwhelming need along with a ‘COVID Suspect Ward’ where extensive testing will be performed to provide early intervention and restrict further spread of the virus.
All treatment will be provided FREE of cost to those in need.
We urgently need funds to cover patient treatment costs and the daily running of this new COVID Health Centre. This is our opportunity to alleviate some pain and suffering by helping India in her hour of need. Please give generously and share extensively at this critical time when your donations will save lives.
This is an initiative by Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care, a United Nations recognised NGO with Special Consultative Status that has already served 5.35million lives through existing projects.
Funds raised will be used initially to support the new COVID Health Centre and any surplus funds may be used for charitable projects including supporting relief from the COVID-19 outbreak. For more information on the project or to make a contribution, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
