Over 50 million people in India, comprising of mainly the youth, is estimated to be involved in substance abuse.
1.47 Million people have already succumbed to the deadly pandemic of COVID-19 and the numbers are increasing drastically with each passing day.
The Community Service Avenue works diligently & passionately with the Medicrew family to provide some relief to many such pressing issues prevalent today.
The avenue aims to inculcate a sense of social responsibility among the budding doctors and medical professionals by letting them observe & experience these issues closely and by letting them be a part of the solution.
Free Vaccination drive
The pandemic has impacted almost every corner of life, causing global economies to stall, changing the way we work and interact with our loved ones, and stretching healthcare systems to the limit.
Covid-19 vaccinations offered a way to transition out of the monotonous phase of life during covid
An opportunity presented itself where the members of RC medicrew volunteered and helped the medical professionals in vaccinating the around 2000 citizens of Mumbai free of cost.
We at Rotaract club of Medicrew believe that with the right balance of enthusiasm, devotion, hardwork, planning and guidance people can easily “create their own masterpiece”
The community service team wanted to give a chance to the vounteers out there to put themselves in a position of responsibility and take up planing and executing a project under their guidance.
That’s when Shaahkaar - create your own masterpiece came into existence.
A Pan India, year long Project- wherein each month will have a theme based on a day/ festival/ prominent event happening in that month - around which the Project heads were to build a Project.

- With the world coming to a standstill and the pandemic taking over all of us, Doctors were our only hope.
- Doctors have not only been away from their family but also extremely over worked throughout the 2 waves of Covid just to make sure we sit home safe and sound.
- Through the anxiety of being affected with the virus itself or not being able to do anything for the family of a patient - the work that our doctors have done is more than “Phenomenal”
- For each extra effort they’ve given to treat a critical patient and ever relieving smile they’ve put on the faces of people - We at Rotaract Club of Medicrew wanted to Thank them.
- Hence, not any day better than the occasion of - “National Doctor’s Day” we wanted to give back to our doctors.
- Operation gratitude was an initiative to show gratitude to all our doctors and thank them for their endless work
“It is real health that is wealth and not pieces of gold and silver”
Indian healthcare infrastructure took a toll during the pandemic. India has a vast health care system, but there remain many differences in quality between rural and urban areas as well as between public and private health care. The equipment allotted towards public health check ups were being used up to help out the people suffering during the pandemic.
People out there without basic means suffer silently amidst the fear,
hence we at Rotaract club of Medicrew in collaboration with the district brought about Aarogyam - an initiative to cater as many of the community as we can.
The idea behind this project was to conduct a camp where a General Health, Dental and Physical Therapy checkup and screening would be done with additionally a history taking session followed by a one to one session with intern / pg student to get a generalised diagnosis or medical help and donation of prescription tablets.
The primary goal of this project was to provide basic healthcare and primary prevention to as many members of the community as we could.
RC Medicrew emphasises on the fact that health is an investment not an expense and should be easily accessible to all.
By collaborating with the District the reach of this idea along with its benefit to the community would be amplified.
“In all this world there is nothing so beautiful as a happy child” - L Frank Boom
Maintaining good health is dependent on a lot of factors. It ranges from the air you breathe to the type of people you choose to spend your time with. Health has a lot of components that carry equal importance.Unfortunately, many people are not privileged enough to have appropriate health care. As sadenning as the fact is, health is one of the most important aspects required for a country to flourish. Belonging to a country which lies towards the lower monetary aspects, it isn't very astonishing to discover that 23% of the sick population does not have access to good health care.
Amidst the pandemic, with the absence of multiple health check up camps, the health of underprivileged children was neglected. Rotary club of Bombay Pier in collaboration with Rotaract club of Medicrew conducted a health camp where 72 children were evaluated. The event aimed at working towards welfare in various aspects to give the children a better quality of life, improved health status.
The Rotaract Club of Medicrew firmly believes that kids are the future of our country and keeping a check on their health and education is the need of the hour.
