The Raj Medicity on Saturday urged organisations to refrain from conducting donation drives at the hospital, emphasising the need for unwavering attention to providing free treatment to victims of the prolonged crisis in Manipur.
Addressing the media at the hospital’s premises in Imphal, chairman of Raj Medicity H Rajen disclosed the hospital’s remarkable commitment to free services, citing the sacrifice of half the staff’s salaries over the past five months to meet financial challenges.
Despite facing severe hardships due to the unrest, Raj Medicity remains dedicated to prioritising humanitarian services, he added.
Addressing concerns about financial constraints, Rajen reported that some organisations have sought monetary aid from the hospital.
Emphasising the importance of ensuring optimal service delivery in the free treatment programme, he appealed to all concerned parties to abstain from seeking such aid.
Providing a snapshot of the hospital’s efforts, Rajen stated that 354 victims of the crisis have been treated, with 11 brought dead, 116 admissions, and 227 cases of minor injuries discharged after treatment.
Surgical procedures were performed on 99 admitted patients, with two succumbing to injuries pre-surgery and three before intervention, he said, adding at present the hospital is actively caring for six stable patients related to the crisis.
The chairman also acknowledged the support received from various individuals, highlighting a total contribution of Rs 12,30,500 in cash and medical items worth Rs 6,98,300.
Despite the challenges, Raj Medicity remains steadfast in its commitment to providing essential medical care to those affected by the crisis, with a plea for collective cooperation to ensure uninterrupted focus on this vital service.
