Where We Work

SEAL Ashram is a shelter home for destitute individuals abandoned on the streets of Mumbai, India.

The Approach

Free Medical Treatment:

Patients with infectious diseases like incurable tuberculosis or H.I.V. are sometimes refused treatment in Indian hospitals where under equipped or undereducated staff members are frightened of getting infected. Not only does this kind of behavior defy the ethical standards of the medical practice, but it delays the treatment these patients need to survive.

Hence, SEAL Ashram is in the process of building a hospital that will provide free medical treatment to the residents of the Ashram or anyone unable to afford treatment. The individuals brought to this facility are generally those affected by diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and other chronic physical and mental illness.

Safe Housing:

Today, SEAL is a shelter home for over 265 people. At SEAL Ashram, the residents are provided with food, clothing, shelter, health care and an education. However, they are unable to admit any more residents into their facility due to lack of space.

Once the hospital project is completed, the women and girls will be moved into the new facility so room can be made to bring in more residents. The new hospital will accommodate around 200 patients including existing and future residents of the SEAL organization.
