Dr. Pravin Rathod and his Medical Team

Dr. Pravin Rathod and his medical staff provide medical treatment to the children at Gabriel Project Mumbai on a monthly basis. 
In India, 53% of children under the age of 5 live without access to basic health care (according to the World Health Organization). Coupled with unsanitary living conditions, children that get sick have a low chance of survival.

GPM is working hard to change this. GPM has teamed up with local residents in Mumbai to offer free healthcare to children living in poverty. Dr. Pravin Rathod gives all of the kids continual monitoring, vaccines, and different medications as needed.

The overall health of 500 children in GPM's care has increased, along with a jump in daily school attendance for the 2017/18 academic year!
