Each Year, Doctors Head to the Remotest Parts of India to Give Free Medical Care
Every year, retired Indian-American doctors head to India’s tribal lands to provide free medical service. They treat those who are without medicine or help, and who are often forgotten and isolated. During this “Yatra”—Hindi for “pilgrimage,” volunteers treat tens of thousands of people over a 10-day period. They provide necessities, medicine, surgeries and prosthetics. Most importantly, they provide hope.
