Gwalior Children's Hospital

Introduction and so far
Gwalior Children's Hospital is a small registered charity working to establish a children's hospital and a mobile hospital including hospice for HIV children to provide health, education and medical services to poor, needy and disabled children in Gwalior; its slums, rural and remote areas as well an orphanage with rehabilitation and training centre for disabled and destitute children to make them independent and able to lead a life with self esteem.

Dr B.K.Sharma, the inspiration behind this work, is a Paediatric Surgeon currently working in the British NHS. Born in Morena, India, the son of a teacher, he was educated at Morena, Gwalior and Bombay in India and later in England. Having seen and experienced the sufferings of poor people as one of them, but fortunate to have gone out and find sucess in the western world, he wanted to establish a hospital back in his hometown of India. His vision has been to set up an institution which could provide health education and high quality medical services to the under privileged section of the society especialy to poor, needy, destitute and disabled children there, the most neglected ones.

Gwalior - the place and its children
The Indian Government's Tourist Department runs a site on the internet from which pictures of beautiful temples, and a resume of its history, can be downloaded. The sun shines on a tropical garden. None of that is very real!

The project - summary so far and future aims
The Trust has been set up to establish desperately needed medical and educational services in Gwalior and Chambal region, to the poor and under privileged. The hospital has been functioning for last five years. We have expanded to add the hospital for women and the mobile hospital "A real hospital on wheels" with audiovisual, basic investigations, treatment and operations facilities to reach people in slums and remote villages to provide such essentially required health education and services to them on their door steps. We will like to establish "a hospice for terminally ill and HIV children" to provide a life with love and dignity for their remaining life. School for special needs is already working for last three years. We will like to expand hospital services to 200 bedded specialists hospital, school and want to establish an orphanage with centre for vocational training and rehabilitation for the destitute and disabled children as well initiate scholarships for poor children to help them achieve education, so that they can lead a life with self esteem and dignity independently.
