Children Visit Patients in Hospitals

Summer vacations are usually wasted away watching television at home. To build an attitude of serving our society, the Sanstha organized a novel idea that found tremendous success. ‘Project Prayer’ sent groups of the Sanstha’s Children volunteers to hospitals to pray and give comfort to the patients. No distinction was made of caste, class or religion of the patients. The children visited each hospital for three consecutive days. The boys visited the male wards and the girls visited the female wards. On the last day, the children usually presented a flower to each and every patient as a sign of friendship and warm wishes.

  • In 1994, 500 boys and girls visited 70 private and government run hospitals in various areas of Mumbai during the summer vacations.
  • In 1995, children visited hospitals in cities like Mumbai, Surat and Amdavad during the summer vacation.

Hospitals visited: 562

  • In 1997, children visited 8 hospitals in Kolkata from B.M. Birla Heart Research Center to Kothari Medical Center, meeting a total of 773 patients during the month of May.
