20th November was the day Dr Mark Kniss and his team opened the Medical Clinic at Tumbagarah village which later developed into the Nav Jivan Hospital. This year, we decided to celebrate Founder's Day. I wonder if it's the first time it's being done.
We had wanted to do things grander. However, the increased patient load and my being away did not allow much planning. Nevertheless, we decided to have a time of fellowship, remembrance and feasting to celebrate the founding of the hospital.
Below are few snaps from the program. It was a blessing to have had Mr. Jayakumar and Mr. Victor from Central Office, EHA as well as Mr.Thomas Kurian, Managing Director, Jiwan Jyothi Christian Hospital, Robertsganj - our nearest sister hospital.
