The Lord gave us a vision in January 2013 to enlarge our territory. After much prayer we decided to start a clinic in Adilabad, which is 40 Kms from Umri and is one of the most backward districts in the Telengana State of Andhra Pradesh. As Adilabad doesn’t have a good hospital, 40% of Umri Christian Hospital patients travel 150 to 200 kms. from places in Andhra Pradesh for treatment at UCH. Many of these patients suffer from Tuberculosis. So we felt the urge to extend our healing Ministry to Adilabad.
A major hurdle for us at this juncture was the language. Our Lord at the right time brought us Dr. Hannah, M.D (Family Medicine) who is Telugu speaking. We started the clinic in a rented building in Adilabad on January 4, 2016 also providing the additional facilities of X Ray, Laboratory and Pharmacy. We pray it will address the medical needs of the community there.
