Inauguration of Affordable Health Clinic & Care Service at Banakal

"Healthcare is a human right" says Bernie Sanders. Health care services aim to address the physical, mental, and emotional needs of patients, promoting wellness and treating illness or injury. Access to quality health care services is essential for individuals and communities to achieve optimal health outcomes and quality of life.

It was indeed a great day for Vimukti Charitable Trust® to inaugurate affordable health clinic & care service in Banakal which aims to cater the health care needs of people and community in and around Muidgere taluk. Mrs. Sushela B L Senior PHCO of Banakal Primary Health Centre inaugurated the centre and Fr. Prem Dsouza, Guardian & parish priest of Banakal Church, showered God’s choicest blessings on the centre.
