MLD Trust Serving Humanity with Homoeopathic

MLD Trust – Access to affordable healthcare is currently one of the most difficult challenges for both urban and suburban cities, as well as for the poor and migrant populations.

Despite the fact that there are numerous government-run hospitals in Mumbai, the city of dreams has a severe lack of medical services. The medical expenses of a single family member can financially devastate the entire family.

Dr. M L Dhawale’s students established the MLD Trust following his untimely death. Dr. Dhawale’s motto was chosen as the Trust’s main goal: no patient should be denied healthcare services simply because they cannot afford them.

Since then, the Trust has grown to include three hospitals, twelve rural clinics, fourteen urban clinics, and two mobile clinics, serving over 200,000 patients per year.

MLD Trust’s mission is to achieve excellence in integrated homoeopathic medical care, education, and research, as well as to use alternative health care systems and community and social development to promote positive health in a cost-effective manner.

The trust works to make health care more affordable for everyone, especially the most vulnerable members of society. It has also established facilities for Alternative Treatment Care and Research. In the field of Homoeopathic Medical Education and Training, much research has been conducted on Educational Methods.

The MLD Trust has achieved the following milestones:

Childbirth rates in Palghar’s tribal areas increased from 5% to 95%.

Antenatal care, which was previously unheard of in this region, has increased from 0% to 100%.

Age at marriage, and thus age at first delivery, has risen from less than 18 to more than 20.

The average birth weight has risen from less than 2 kilogrammes to 2.8 kilogrammes.

The average number of children per woman has fallen from four to two.

Opened the region’s first dialysis centre, bringing life-saving treatment closer to home.

Replacement or Urology or LSCS were made available to low-income patients for free, at reduced rates, or through government-approved schemes.

A taxi driver with urological symptoms had visited numerous government and non-profit organizations for four months and was later introduced to the MLD Trust. Because of his illness, he was unable to work and was the family’s sole breadwinner, which had a negative impact on the entire family. MLD Trust was his last hope because his children’s education had been jeopardized and their living conditions had deteriorated.

MLD Trust was able to pay for his operation thanks to donations of a C-arm machine from DMart and an endoscopic surgical camera from the Rotary Club of Kandivli. The Trust used its own Indigent Patient Fund (IPF) to help him with post-surgery expenses.

This single effort resurrected his family, put smiles on his children’s faces, and improved their living conditions by allowing him to return to work healthy.

An individual’s health affects the entire family!

For the past 35 years, the Trust has overcome many obstacles and worked tirelessly to improve and dignify community life through education and job opportunities. To improve people’s economic health, the Trust has launched an organic farming initiative, sustainable livelihood programmes, and self-help groups.
