Service Wing - Sathya Sai Health Awareness Day – Russell Square, London

The Central London Sai Centre conducted its annual Sathya Sai Health Awareness Day at the Coram Fields Nursery, Gulidford Street, London on the 16th June 2013. This service, was loving offered to the individuals from the local homeless shelter.

We were all humbled by the touching account of a gentleman, who experienced first –hand, the loving service offered at a SSHAD.

Last year Mr J was examined at a Sathya Sai Health Awareness Day in Region 3. He was told that he had a cataract in his eye, for which he required a surgical procedure, and he was referred to the NHS for treatment. He was not aware of the extent of his problem, when he presented to the Optometrists at the SSHAD.

This year the Big Issue seller walked back into the same clinic at the Central London Sai Centre in Russell Square, to tell his story and thank the health professionals and volunteers who helped restore his eyesight.

He said: "Last time I got diagnosed with a cataract, the optician gave me a report and told me to take it to the hospital with a letter requesting urgent treatment and an operation. Today I have come simply to thank everyone for helping me. I wouldn’t have even known I had a cataract until it was too late."

Mr. J said that he found the environment at the SSHAD clean and the event, well organised. He said, "The people who volunteer are doing this for such a good cause and I am so thankful to them and to Sai Baba. Everyone loves Sai Baba." Mr. J found out about the clinic after attending the homeless shelter in Lincoln’s Inn Field in Holborn where Sai devotees offer hot food every Monday.

Mr J’s personal experience is a testament to the principles of Sai Ideal Healthcare in practice; providing highest quality care with love and compassion.
