The Eternal Gospel is shared in different languages. At the time of prayer, the presence of the Lord descends on each who pours out to be a sacrifice to reach God.

COMMUNITY BASED REHABILITATION IN CHILDHOOD DISABILITIES)
REACHING THE UNREACHED
“And the King shall answer and say unto them, verily I say unto you, in as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” Mt-25: 40
Healing Stripes Medical Mission is a registered voluntary organization established with the aim to offer a community based rehabilitation in childhood disability in rural areas and thus enabling people with disability to become mobile and integrated into the mainstream.
It so happened that when Dr.V.S. Samuel Paul Isaac, Executive Director & founder of Healing Stripes Rehabilitation Center started reaching the rural community he came across many disabled children who were in real need of rehabilitation & were deprived of the service due to their economical status. This situation, made him to find a real path to create access to people with disabilities, so that they could lead a life with dignity and respect. This ignited the desire for Dr. Sam to reach unconditionally to the common man & render service at his best. Thus in the year 1997 he started treating the disabled children in a small hut at Majjige Hosahalli, Devanahalli Taluk. He started reaching the unreached villages with an aim to render his service.
He traveled 75 km fromBangalore during his weekends totreat the physically challenged. Thenews of his effective treatment soonspread through Majjige Hosahalli& the neighboring villages. Theinflow of physically challengedchildren was rapidly increasing dayby day. Lack of proper alternativesforced Dr.Sam to continue treatingpatients at a small hut.
The center was loaded with multi category disabilities such as polio, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, down's syndrome, injection palsy, erb's palsy, loco-motor disabilities, autism, visual impaired, hearing impaired, speech impaired, learning disabilities, scholastic backwardness. All these cases were a challenge to the center. The teamwork & their dedication at the center were outstanding & thus the recovery of the physically challenged children & their satisfaction was remarkable.
The center started conducting health camps & awareness programs at various villages with an aim to reach the unreached communities. Over 250-300 people visit the camp every time it is conducted. Healing Stripes uses community based rehabilitation approach, which is emphasized to build rehabilitation on the local strength without disintegrating people with disabilities from their communities.
