India's Lifeline Express 12.5.2009
H. E. Shri S. C. Jamir, Governor of Maharashtra, released a National Postage Stamp at Raj Bhavan honouring Impact India's Lifeline Express - the world's first hospital train on May 12, 2009 in Mumbai - a project in partnership with the Indian Railways. He also launched Impact India's book, "Creating Rainbows" covering its innovative journey over 25 years.
The LifeLine Express has two state of the art operating theatres, recovery rooms offices and accommodation. And for each project a team of volunteer doctors, surgeons and nurses give their services for free. For four weeks cameras follow the Mandsor project, the train carries out operations on poor rural people whilst standing in a station in the middle of India. The operations change the lives of the patients and the doctors. Compelling, dynamic and moving stories, LifeLine Express leads us through a gateway into another India - where 21st century medicine meets village India.
