Sri Gayathri Medical Mission & Research Foundation

Good health is the foundation for a happy life. Poverty, pollution, malnutrition and unhygienic surroundings prevent people from enjoying a healthy life.

The main projects of Udavum Karangal are located in Thiruverkadu where there is a significant population of migrants and economically backward people. Addressing their health issues is a priority for Udavum Karangal. Since 2009, Udavum Karangal’s Sri Gayathri Medical Mission and Research Foundation has been running an Out- patient Clinic in Thiruverkadu. Over a period of time we felt the need for a community Hospital in this area and thus emerged…. Gayathri Hospital, a dream project of Udavum Karangal. Join us in this endeavor to bring affordable health- care to those in need.
