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.

The project - summary so far and future
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.
