Seminar on PC-PNDT act

A seminar was held on the PC PNDT act in the Lady Willingdon Hospital on the 24th of January 2015, celebrated as the “Girl child day”. The C.M.O, and D.A.A., Kullu, Shri Baldev Thakur  was Chief guest and the main speaker. He presented a fascinating talk focussing on the unequal sex ratio across India and its implications.

In this Christian Mission hospital, we firmly hold all life to be invaluable. We make no distinction between a fetus and a person and regard abortion as a crime. For this reason, we do not perform M.T.P here in our hospital, even if medical reasons justify it.

We are also committed  to fulfill all the law by ensuring our compliance with this and all other laws that do not contravene the laws that our Creator has given to us. This session educated our staff in the finer points of this act and will help them in the conduct of their daily routines as they intersect with this act.

We thank  our C.M.O, the respected Dr. Baldev Thakur for making this topic so easily understandable to us.

ENT Camp a boon to the deaf

The ENT camp was held in LWH Manali for the fifth year in succession. Large numbers of patients were seen, and microscopic surgery performed on eight patients by Drs. George Ani and Vibhor Jain. We see God’s hand of providence in the work here, since just at this time, a four year old boy was brought at deaths doorstep, with a very rare condition. This condition prevented him from being able to breath because his vocal cords were fixed and were not allowing him to breathe properly. Fortuitously both the ent surgeons were here and operated on him and he is now a much more comfortable little boy who can look forward to life. The father is from nepal, and does not have resources to go elsewhere for treatment. How wonderful that all this worked out the way it did! Thanks team!

Picnic fun


The hospital enjoyed a day picnic at Heritage resorts this week, with the staff letting down their hair and enjoying boat rides, bridge walking, dancing (lots of dancing), a challenging treasure hunt, and a game of tambola. Lunch and snacks were delicious, and a good time was had by all.

Orthopedic camp

Dr. Koshy George, Orthopedic specialist conducted a camp in Manali from the 23rd of August to the 3rd of September. Large numbers of patients waited patiently for him in long lines every day. He was kept busy, in the outpatient clinic, administering intra articular injections in casualty, and operating every evening till late at night. All with extreme patience and good humour. Manali loved him, and we hope he will return again. It is extremely fortunate he was here for some trauma patients that came in during those days. Thank you Koshy, and Believers hospital Tiruvella!

New Generator substation installed

On the 30th of August 2014, a new generator plant substation was inaugurated by our Bishop, Pradeep Kumar Samantaroy. This has been a long felt need which has now become a reality thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Lonnie Bickford and other donors from the United States of America through “Touch Ministries”. God made this possible in an amazing way, and we stand awed by His means of provision which was so specific in its detail. We also thank Mr. Lyle Lopez and his entire team of consultants and experts who put together all the plans and design of the panel and the plant. Every detail dovetailed together perfectly to give us what we have today, a state of the art substation, which means the end of our electrical woes! This project was initiated through an octagenarian engineer from the United States Mr. Jack  Dyer, who had first alerted us to the desperate state of our electrical wiring and had set the ball rolling. All this worked together,  as we discovered, and it all came to be through people linked to Mr. Jack.  Indeed we acknowledge the hand of God using people towards this end. Thank you everyone!DSC04942 DSC04950 DSC04963 DSC04966 DSC04974

Hospital courtyard paved

[singlepic id=404 w= h= float=none]

The hospital courtyard needed to be paved and resurfaced. We are very grateful to the Nagar Panchayat, and the Municipal Committee Manali for doing this for us at their expense for the public areas in the hospital. We appreciate their participation with us in the care of patients here and thank them for this great service to us and the people of Manali. Now the wheelchairs and stretchers do not need to bump their way into the emergency room but can be wheeled smoothly in. We thank our Honorable MLA Shri Govind Thakurji, Shri Roopu Negi, and Srhi Chaman Lal for this.

New generator plans

Our generator set is now about fifteen years old and was in need of replacement. By a very sure and specific hand of God, we have been provided the means to procure a new set and servo stabiliser. Using an intricate network of faithful people, God engineered this for us, and we have now taken the first step of moving our present generator out to a temporary shed, and reconstructing our present generator housing to accomodate the new generator when it arrives. This has been a mosaic of miracles. We thank God and all the dear ones who have made this a reality.

Nurses day

Nurses day (May 12th) went off very well, with the nurses conducting a health talk on Hypertension for the patients, and distributing milk and eggs in the ward. They had a jumble sale of items to raise funds for the poor patients fund and also had food stalls selling siddu and chole bature. The food disappeared very quickly and the rain did not dampen the spirits. We are very proud of our nurses.
