Kachhwa Christian Hospital is located in Uttar Pradesh, 30 kilometers from Varanasi. The area has the state's largest concentration of scheduled castes, a poor and marginalized group of people. Started by Missionaries in 1897, the hospital reached its zenith under Dr Neville Everad. Over the last 10 years new staff and more innovative programs were initiated to reach out to the surrounding community. The 20 bed hospital serves the people from 90 villages having a population of 120,000. The service priorities of the hospital are mainly medical, antenatal care, obstetrics and surgery, community health and spiritual ministry, microenterprise development, education and leadership development.
Kachhwa Christian Hospital continued its partnership with Operation Agape involving various programs both on and off campus through the Kachhwa Transformational Ministries. This year, along with community work, the medical work also picked up under the guidance of Dr. Jeevan Kuruvilla. Mainstreaming disability was a key focus following the Engage Disability Conference in 2014. Awareness programs were conducted in the hospital as well as community around. Many have been helped with medical certificates from the government to help them avail the schemes and facilities including disability pension.
