MOBILE MEDICAL UNIT A Mobile Medical Unit of the Mission leaves almost everyday to far and remote corners of Wayanad through terrains and kutcha roads to reach the vanavasi patients living in the periphery of the forest and quite often inside the forest. Dwellers of these hamlets will get the facilities of hospital at their doorstep. The Unit has all the necessary equipments and personnel to give treatment and essential medicines. Sometimes they will be referred to the base hospital for further treatment. Over the years, it has been found that this move of the Mission had brought in tremendous change on the health conditions and standard of living of the poor, illiterate and shy adivasis.
