LOCATION

Herbertpur Christian Hospital is part of the Emmanuel Hospital Association (EHA), is situated at the foothills of the Himalayas in Uttarakhand, and is actively serving the surrounding communities.

Herbertpur Christian Hospital was established in 1936. It offers services in medicine, orthopedics, surgery, obstetrics & gynecology, pediatrics, dermatology, psychiatry, USG, dental, ENT, eye services, and training of nurses through the School of Nursing.

The hospital’s community health & development programs care for children with special needs through the Anugrah Intervention Centre, orthotics centre, and learning centres. The Shifa Mental Health Project, Lehmann Community College, and Targeted Intervention project for IV drug users are other interventions.

Anglican Overseas Aid supports the Herbertpur Christian Hospital through the Inclusive Livelihoods and Therapy project.

The project trains people with disabilities to enable them to have opportunities for income generation for themselves or their families. As a result, the quality of life of people with disabilities in the Uttarakhand region is improved through meaningful engagement and/or gainful employment in the field of agriculture and horticulture.

Funding: This project is funded by donations from the Australian public.
