Dear Friends & Well Wishers,

It is with great pleasure that I place before you the 60th Annual Report of this institution.

The Sivananda Palliative Care Centre for persons suffering from HIV/AIDS, a facility with twenty five beds, was inaugurated on 23rd of January 2018. The Centre was dedicated to the memory of the Late Smt. Pramila Jagan Mohan Reddy who was associated with SRH since its inception as a Member and as Hon.Treasurer. A generous donation from Dr.Surekha Pingle for the creation of this facility made it happen. Mr. Mujtaba Hasan Askari of Helping Hand Foundation is assisting in the running of the Centre.

A Wellness Centre promoted by the Employees Health Scheme has been established in a building leased to them at a nominal rent. This facility will provide health services to government employees residing in the vicinity of Kukatpally or surrounding area.

The Bhagwan Mahavir Jain Dialysis Foundation has expanded their facility to 36 beds and is running three shifts, as the need for dialysis is increasing. The Kumudini Devi Hospice managed by the Pain Relief and Palliative Care Society continues its service to the terminally ill. The Hyderabad Race Club Eye Center is providing quality eye care to the community.

Ramdevrao Hospital continues to provide quality affordable medical care to the community. RH has entered into an MOU with Akhil Bharatha Mahila Seva Samaj to make available facilities on Sundays that would enable them to perform surgeries on children with cleft lips/palates.

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 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. I would like to thank Smt. Rekha Sekhri for helping us in updating the information on our web site.

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.
