Press Release: The Santokba Medical Centre, a state-of-the-art facility for  medical care and treatment that was named after Govind Dholakia's late mother, “Shree Santokba,” in Lathi Village   was inaugurated by renowned religious preacher Shree Morari Bapu. Set up in Gujarat state at “Laljidada No Vadlo” (meaning: under the shadow of late Shree Laljidada – the father of  Dholakia) the center   is a not-for-profit initiative by Dholakia, the chairman of Shree Ramkrishna (SRK) Exports, and was established  to treat those who cannot afford medical care.

Patients will be treated at the subsidized rate and the money that accrues will be utilized to support the institution. The rest of the center’s expenses will be covered by “Matrushri Santokba Laljibhai Dholakia Charitable Trust.” The center has the best of technology, equipment and treatment protocols, and these have been put in place in consultation and collaboration with specialists.

SRK, which has been running  medical and educational centers for many years,  undertook the initiative to acquaint remote areas with the best in life saving treatment and technology at almost a negligible cost.  On the auspicious inaugural day, Bapu said, “It is very difficult to do business as well as serve society at the same time. Govindbhai is one of his kind who is integrating both. Whether it is Surat City or this home town, Govindbhai is always ahead in queue when it comes to uphold society.” 

Being graced by the god with a thousand hands, Govindbhai is servicing society with both of  his hands for the past three decades.  On the occasion, through kindness and inspiring optimism, Dholakia announced adopting 50 children of the village, whose entire educational expenses will be covered. Known for his generosity and, as a humble being,  Dholakia also allocated special funds for supporting girls' education, upliftment of widows and supporting needy women. Nearly 200 people were aided by the initiative.

Being the trustee of almost 75 trusts, Dholakia is the example of an Ideal philanthropist who believes that, one does not need a reason to help someone. There is no exact time and place to extend a helping hand.
