While launching “Buniyadi Sanjivani Sewa” at a function, the Chief Minister flagged off the mobile therapy vans in the presence of Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi and Minister for Social Welfare Manju Varma.

According to the report by The Indian Express, the vans stocked with the basic medical equipment’s would be accompanied by a technical team that will provide basic essential medical care to widows, elderly people, the differently-abled in the districts including Bhagalpur, Begusarai, Buxar, Muzaffarpur, Nawada, Purnea, Nalanda, Patna, Rohtas, Darbhanga and Samastipur.

The next phase of the project is 101 Buniyad Sewa Kendra – basic service centers that would be opened in all sub-divisions. As per the official statement announced in Patna, the mobile therapy van is an outcome of a joint project of the World Bank and the government of Bihar, run by the social welfare department. The statement further added that the work of setting up of 87 similar centers is in progress.
