During his visit to Gondal in Gujarat in the month of October, the leader of the Dawoodi Bohra community His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, donated a much-needed Hemodialysis Machine to the Shree Ram Sarvajanik Hospital.
The machine is a crucial addition to the hospital, addressing the pressing need for advanced medical technology to support local communities. With an increasing number of individuals requiring dialysis treatment, the donation of this life-saving machine by Syedna Saifuddin as part of the community global philanthropic initiative, Project Rise, is poised to make a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands in and around Gondal.
The opening of the machine was done in the presence of the representative of Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin in Gondal, Murtaza Saeed, and the local religious leader Shri Jayramdasji Maharaj.
Bipin Bhatt, Medical Director of Shree Ram Sarvajanik Hospital expressed his gratitude for Syedna’s gesture, stating, “The hospital currently serves approximately 700 to 800 patients every day and around 30 to 40 operations per day. The addition of the Hemodialysis Machine will enhance the hospital’s capacity to support patients suffering from chronic kidney disease and renal failure.”
Addressing the audience during the opening ceremony, Murtaza Saeed said, “Whenever Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin travels in villages, towns and cities in India and abroad, he enquires after people’s health & well-being. When he visited Gondal a few months ago, he was informed about the need for vital medical equipment in the hospital. He immediately accepted the request and the process of procurement started. This contribution to the hospital, under the banner of Project Rise, underscores Syedna’s concern for the health and well-being of individuals and society at large.”
Established in 2018, Project Rise reflects upon the values of compassion and empathy as per the teachings of Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin. The initiative aims to improve the lives of underserved individuals through programs and interventions in five key areas – Nutrition, Water, Health & Hygiene, Education and Environment.
The Hemodialysis Machine is a vital tool for those with kidney failure, performing the essential task of filtering waste and excess fluid from the blood. This advanced machine is designed to remove waste products, excess fluids, and toxins from the blood, thereby assisting individuals whose kidneys are unable to effectively perform these vital functions.
