Medical care is almost non existent in large areas of the Himalaya.
Therefore the GMP Foundation organizes so-called „Medical Camps“ to offer free medical treatment to the mountain population.
Regular repetition of these successful “medical camps” can only be achieved with constant financial support.
Last year we held 11 medical camps:
|1||22. – 24.03.13||General Medical Camp||Dr. R. K. Singh, Dr. S. M. Dixit,
Dr. S. Koot, Dr. G. Shukla

Dr. Georg Michael Praetorius in conversation with patients, October 2013
Accommodation for the medical teams from Germany:
In July 2013 we inaugurated the new Dr. Georg Michael Praetorius „Ashram“ with a so called „Puja“. „Ashram“ means refuge in Sanskrit. It is a very peaceful property in the middle of a mango grove.
Infrastructure construction for our activites
The on-site infrastructure has been improved by medical donations to the Kalindi Hospital in Vikasnagar, Uttrakhand. The donated medical devices allow a much better diagnosis and treatment. They can also be used at medical camps.
We attented the ceremonial opening of Kalindi Hospital in February 2013 with Health Minister Surendra Singh Negi.
