Our goal
Provide physiotherapy assistance to an impoverished region in the state of Telangana, India.
The Challenge

90% of patients never receive care due the lack of resources and funds in their hometown hospitals.

Physiotherapy is in growing demand among health care services globally. There is no better example than India. 90% of patients referred for physical therapy never receive care due to the lack of resources and funds in their hometown hospitals and clinics.

In India, public hospitals do not have the expertise or equipment to provide long term and permanent recovery. There are cultural barriers in place as well. Often, these services are ignored as it is a burgeoning yet highly effective preventative and therapeutic medical practice.

Bannu hospital works in a remote tribal catchment area of Telangana state in India. Bannu's mission is to bring lasting change by reinforcing the public health system and providing full spectrum care to the poor and marginalized of India. This includes providing the latest in needed physiotherapy.

Our Solution

Provide high quality physiotherapeutic equipment and practitioners to Bannu’s catchment area.

Physiotherapy is very important for people of all ages who have medical conditions or injuries that limit their ability to function. A customized physical therapy program can help individuals return to their prior level of functioning. We plan to provide preventative therapies as well by encouraging activities and lifestyle changes that can help prevent further injury and improve overall health and well-being.

Primary care doctors often refer patients to physical therapy at the first sign of trouble as it is considered a conservative approach to managing problems.

Bannu hospital provides trained nurses, arranges free physician services, subsidized hospitalization costs, and connects government funds and private donors like you with those in need. Since 2016, Bannu hospital has focused on providing subsidized healthcare to the impoverished tribal people of Eturnagaram, India. 100,000 tribal lives have been impacted, and this is just the beginning.

Your Impact

Your donation can help improve the quality of life for those afflicted by physical limitations.

Injuries and pain can affect anyone, often without warning. While medication may provide temporary relief, their long-term effect on kidneys and liver can prove to be costly. Physical therapy, in such cases, not only strengthens an individual and improve mobility but also provides lasting relief from pain.
