72 years old Vejljibhai is living in our SMCD village Devpara- Bherai of Rajula block, Gujarat.
Veljibhai’s family was dependent on retail labour. He had three children and a wife in his family. His wife died 15 years ago. He shouldered the responsibility of raising and marrying off the children. His sons settled in other villages for livelihood. He married his youngest daughter four years ago, and since then he was living alone.
Veljibhai had been suffering from hypertension and depression for the last ten years. Earlier he used to take treatment and medicine from private doctors but now survival had become difficult. Three years ago, he started taking treatment from GHCL’s mobile dispensary. GHCL’s medical team ensured that all the necessary tests, adequate examinations, counselling and medicines were provided free of cost.
