Bangalore (India) – January 06, 2022 – Right to Live, a NGO working on transforming lives through quality education and healthcare, today handed over a mobile clinic on a van to Dr Sunil Kumar Hebbi to help expand his mobile clinic service. The Maruti Suzuki Eeco Ambulance van, sponsored by Wipfli LLP, contains Primary Health Care equipment to facilitate the primary treatment of the underprivileged in and around Bangalore. The event was attended by senior executives from Wipfli India, Right to Live, and Dr Sunil Hebbi.
The funds for the Mobile Clinic was provided by Wipfli Foundation and the employees of Wipfli LLP as part of their Covid Relief efforts in India. In association with Wipfli, Right To Live is equipping the health infrastructure in rural Public Health Centers (PHCs) and Government hospitals with much needed medical equipments, and also providing financial relief to the underprivileged students affected by Covid. Right To Live has donated the Mobile Clinic to Dr Sunil Hebbi to strengthen his primary health care efforts to the urban and rural poor, and also to face the upcoming Covid waves.
Dr Sunil Hebbi is currently providing his yeoman service by converting his old car into a Mobile Clinic that patients could reach with just a phone call. With this new advanced Mobile Clinic, Dr Hebbi wishes to expand the service to remote places in and around Bangalore where there are no proper primary healthcare facilities available. Dr Hebbi says, "When poor patients can't go to doctors, doctors must go to them". With this lofty ideal, he aims to promote health awareness and also bring a voice to "RIGHT TO LIVE" for the poor.
Speaking on occasion, Mr Sumanth Padival, Director of Wipfli India, said, "Given the poor situation of the primary health infrastructure in the rural areas and slums of Bangalore, alternative methods of service delivery is much needed. This mobile clinic approach can ensure that the health services reach the doorsteps of the people residing in remote areas that are largely un-served and underserved."
Mr Raghuram Kote, Founder Trustee of Right to Live (Kote Foundation), said, "Partnering with Wipfli reaffirms our belief that community service must be integrated with sustainable business strategy. We are confident that Wipfli's support on Covid Relief Programs coupled with our vision to improve the well-being of underprivileged children will converge for the greater good of our communities."
