This is a beautiful project and we are doing amazing work. The program has been running for nine years and we have reached a level of maturity and knowledge over that time.
Our mission statement supports our goal that any child admitted to our hospital should receive the best standards of care available so that they have the best chance of survival. We stand proudly by that and we have saved hundreds of children.
Initially the project was set up as hospital, but it has developed into a holistic community program, as local needs became apparent.
The Varanasi Children’s Hospital was founded in 2004 by Dr R.K. Singh from Varanasi and Pat McMahon, a registered nurse, from Meelin, North Cork in Ireland.
We now operate a:
- Malnutrition unit
- Children’s Hospital
- Mobile Medical Unit
- Health Promotion and TB Clinic
- Schools Program
The following short video gives an overview of the work we do and the Varanasi region.
