More than 1.2 million people have benefitted from various initiatives of Aster Volunteers during the last few years. The response received from them has encouraged us to extend these services in regions that most warrant these healthcare requirements. With an objective to reduce the yawning gap between basic healthcare needs and access to it, I am glad to announce and be part of the launch of the 9th Aster Volunteers Mobile Medical Service.”
 
Mr. Hibi Eden appreciated Aster Volunteers for launching Mobile Medical Services in Kochi as it can benefit thousands of people in the district. “It’s certainly a welcome step and the group has set an example for others by launching such a service in Kochi. The initiative will ensure access for people living in the remote areas to primary healthcare,” added, Mr. Hibi Eden, Member of Parliament – Ernakulam, Kerala
 
The Aster Volunteers Mobile Medical Service will be accompanied by experienced doctors, nurses and a driver who will conduct regular medical camps in their respective regions on an ongoing basis. The mobile clinic will function in association with voluntary organizations and social activists in different parts of the district.
 
Aster Volunteers Mobile Medical Services was launched in 2012 as a part of the group’s commitment to give back to the community to provide quality healthcare services to people living in areas where medical facilities are inadequate or inaccessible. With this flag off, Aster Volunteers Mobile Medical Services will have its footprints in Delhi, Orissa, Jamshedpur, Kozhikode and Nilambur in India, along with UAE, Philippines and Ethiopia.
