Fakhri Medical Centre, an initiative under the Mohalla Clinic model was inaugurated on Sunday 24 September in Kharol Colony at Fatehpura, Udaipur. The Fakhri Medical Centre will be operated and managed by the Fakhri Medical and Welfare Society, Udaipur.
The Dawoodi Bohra community at Udaipur has been at the forefront in matters related to community and social welfare. The Taiyyabiya School at Delhi Gate, the Bohra Youth School, the Udaipur Urban Cooperative Bank and the Bohra Youth Dispensary at Udaipur are successful examples of this welfare perspective.
The Fakhri Medical and Welfare Society has been primarily setup by Aziz Chakkiwala in memory of his late father Haji Fakhruddin Chakkiwala. Haji Fakhruddin was also an active supporter and coordinator at the erstwhile Saifee Burhani Hospital in Udaipur.
Ali Asgar Magar, member of Fakhri Medical and Welfare Society informed that the Fakhri Medical Centre is yet another such initiative that looks at healthcare from the micro management perspective, supporting the community belief that primary healthcare should be easily accessible by each stakeholder, irrespective of community, caste, social standing or religion. With this in mind, primary access to healthcare (OPD only) is available at Fakhri Medical Centre, for anyone who needs to secure immediate medical attention for themselves or for anyone in their family.
These are the salient features of the Fakhri Medical Centre:
The executive members of Fakhri Medical and Welfare Society, under whose management the Fakhri Medical Centre will be operated include Abbas Bandookwala, Zaki Chakkiwala Abdul Hussain Qutub, Fazle Abbas Luqmani, Joon Ali and Ali Asgar Magar as its members.
