The centre will offer a wide range of free medical services
Harish Jagtani’s HJ Foundation, a non-profit organisation focused on providing healthcare services to underprivileged sections of society, has opened a new healthcare centre in Kinshasa, Congo. This new facility will exclusively serve residents of the local community who are struggling to access affordable healthcare.
The centre will offer a wide range of free medical services, including general medicine, dialysis, ophthalmology and prosthetic limbs. It will provide basic laboratory testing, as well as radiology services.
Harish Jagtani, a Jaipur-born industrialist and philanthropist, has been operating in the Democratic Republic of Congo for the past two decades and has been running various businesses, such as cargo, real estate and healthcare. His foundation has been serving the people of this country relentlessly by hosting regular health camps, such as dialysis, malaria, ophthalmology and many more.
Jagtani said, “Through this clinic, the foundation will have its own dialysis centre to treat patients suffering from kidney infections. It will also have a service called ‘Jaipur Foot’, which will take care of people living with disabilities by distributing prostheses for both upper and lower limbs.”
He added, “I’m pleased to inform you that malaria will also be fully covered by the foundation, which will dispense the drugs required for its treatment during its campaign against this mosquito menace. This clinic will, additionally, offer hospitalisation to all patients waiting to undergo cataract and glaucoma surgery.”
