"We had started a Charitable Diagnostic Centre under the name of PANCHKULA WELFARE TRUST to provide some relief to the Economically Poor patients who just ignore their treatment due to cost of examinations. Providing Quality Examination at an Affordable Cost to the needy is our main Motto," general secretary Dr. Naresh Mittal, said.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
Our main aim is to serve the Humanity and help Needy by taking up various programs in the field of Medical, Education, Drinking water, Drainage as well as General Upliftment in the living standards of slum/rural areas. We strongly believe that quality, ethical & affordable public and health services should be provided to all sections irrespective of their caste/creed or religion.
In developing countries such as India there is lack of Timely Health Management and Health Care treatment due to non-availability of proper affordable Health Diagnostic services. To provide such services and serve the masses the Trust has setup a CHARITABLE DIAGNOSTIC CENTRE, which has been equipped with the modern gadgetry for carrying out various tests of the patients. The Centre provides services at rates that are almost 1/3rd (30%) of the prevailing rates in the market.
We are associated with Social awareness program of State Government of Haryana "Save Girl child", a scheme to avoid female feticide/infanticide. Also, we organize various Blood donation camps with combined efforts of Red Cross Society, Distt Health Authorities and other NGOs.
