Swami Vivekananda Medical Mission
Swami Vivekananda Medical Mission is a registered Charitable trust working with a not for profit motive. The trust aims to serve the backward sections of the population of Attappady block of Palakkad district in Kerala state, India. Overall development of the people of Attappady, especially the scheduled tribes, with freedom from illness, poverty and malnourishment has been the focus of the mission ever since its establishment. The activities of the mission have hence ranged from medical relief to education, women’s empowerment and eradication of social evils like alcoholism.
Swami Vivekananda Medical Mission is inspired by the rousing call of Swami Vivekananda to serve every man as God himself---‘Nara’ as’ Narayana’.We are driven by his vision of India rising from the villages and forests, from the most remote and most backward sections of our great motherland. We therefore strive, in every step, to serve each person as God, to remove agony, reduce suffering and provide comfort. Liberating people from the clutches of ill health and poverty and leading them to better lives through education, empowerment and social regeneration has been the mission of the trust all these years.
The mission is compelled to develop the infrastructure and facilities at the hospital for the benefit of the poor patients coming to the hospital.
