Habitat for Humanity India, the leading non-profit housing organization, is pleased to announce the successful completion and handover of four refurbished healthcare centers in the Dahanu block of Palghar district, Maharashtra, in collaboration with SBI Capital Markets Limited (SBICAPS), India’s leading investment bank. The healthcare centers were handed over to district medical authorities on December 1, 2023, in the presence of Shri Rajay Sinha, Managing Director and CEO of SBICAPS; Mr. Shesh Ram Verma, President and Chief Operating Officer of SBICAPS; Mr. Krishnan Kutty, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of SBICAPS; Mr. Roshan Negi, Head, Corporate Communication and CSR of SBICAPS; Dr. Vijay Thakkar, Medical Officer of Malwada Primary .
The project entailed repairing and refurbishing the Malwada Primary Health Centre, the Ranshet sub-centre, and the Dabhadi and Chalani dispensaries.

External and internal plastering, painting, improved sanitation units, and overall plumbing, roofing, and electrical work were all part of the repair and refurbishment work.
“We are excited to partner with SBI Capital Markets to build improved healthcare centers in Palghar,” said James Samuel, National Director (Interim), Habitat for Humanity India. The renovated infrastructure will allow the medical team to perform their duties in healthier working conditions and provide services to low-income families in the region more efficiently.
