Dear Friends & Well Wishers,

It is with great pleasure that I place before you the 59th Annual Report of this institution. This report covers the period 1st April 2016 to 31st March 2017.

On a request from Sri R.Surendar Reddy, Chairman of the Hyderabad Club, to fund, equip and run a Charitable Eye Care Center, the Board has agreed to give the remaining area of approximately 8000 sq ft on the second floor of the Ramdevrao Hospital to them for the Center. The modalities of a MoU between SRH and HRC were discussed and finalized. The Hyderabad Race Club Eye Center was inaugurated in November and was getting a good response from the public.

The Bhagwan Mahavir Jain Dialysis center is running four shifts, as the need for dialysis is so great. The Kumudini Devi Hospice managed by the Pain Relief and Palliative Care Society continues its service to the terminally ill.

Ramdevrao Hospital continues to provide affordable medical care to the public. The programme to provide free screening and medical services to children attending Government Schools is running successfully. The enrollment in the Rayathi card scheme which enables poor patients to avail of discounts in the cost of medical services, has substantially increased.

As in past years we have benefitted from the generosity of many of our well wishers and I would like to thank them for the donations & help that they have provided to SRH over the years. The German Leprosy Relief Association, The Government of Telangana, The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation, The State TB Control Society have made substantial contributions to our efforts for which we are grateful. We thank Dr. August Beine and the Sisters of the Nirmala Dasikal Congregation for their continuing dedication and selfless service.

My grateful thanks to Shri Birad Yagnik and his team at Visual Quest for continuing to maintain and host our website and to Shrimati Chitra Reddy for bringing out our Newsletter. I would like to thank Shrimati Rekha Sekhri for helping us produce a new Brochure.

My grateful thanks once again to Mr.A Bapanna of Kala Jyothi Press for generously printing the Brochures.

I would also like to thank all our doctors and other staff members for their dedication and & hard work which has made SRH what it is.

Vikramdev Rao
Honorary Secretary
