Since 1995 SAMPARC came in close surrounding village women and community. SAMPARC first started a training program on sanitation and hygiene, cleanliness, safe drinking water, and nutrition. In the beginning, SAMPARC worked with dozens of traditional herbal medicinal practitioner of surrounding villages to identify existing herbs and medicinal plants. For few years the attempt was to use the herbal plants to treat various diseases.
While working closely at the community level it was felt that the community need preventive medical support. The things become very worse when it was found due to small illness, snake bites, accidents made people to die.
In the first phase, Mr. Banerjee took help of Dr. Lalit Chokhani, present President of SAMPARC and Mrs. Lucilla Monti to start medical van project with the doctor. The Van started to visit nearby 25 villages. Gradually it was realized a centre to develop for coordination of basic medical requirement of local people. Thus a medical centre was constructed at SAMPARC Maalvli centre with 14 beds so that patient can be given treatment during the day time and other specialized doctors to attend various needs of the patient. Dr. Satish Patil, MD who took the responsibility as Director of Medical Centre now the centre is working for SAMPARC Bhaje Balgra, Bal Asha Ghar, Bhambarde school and other 25 villages of Maval Taluka. Now along with INSIEME, Ruchika Women’s Club Volkart Foundation are supporting Medical Centre.
