“I am very proud of my country and that’s why I always see for an opportunity and also live to give back anything possible to my country and serve my people. My name is Ramyashree Tummala. I am an internal medicine resident at saint vincent charity. I came from Cleveland to India on a mission called Medical yatra. If I translate that into English, it;s “pilgrimage.”

Shree and 15 other volunteer doctors from OHIO. Are on a one-week medical mission in eastern Gujarat’s tribal belt where villagers don’t have easy access to doctors. They see their “Bhagat,” or Traditional healer when they are sick.

I have seen how difficult it is for certain patients to get to a hospital when they  are sick. I’m very surprised that they are living with such pain and they have never gone to a doctor.

The mission is now in its 16th year. It goes to a different Indian region every year. In just one week, supported by doctors and volunteers. It treated 4,000 patients across 10 villages. Shree, who originally hails from southern India’s Hyderabad. Personally treated 400 patients.

I thought that this is a wonderful opportunity that I could take back to my country and serve my people with the knowledge and the working skills that I got from the training that I got in the US.”
