India

Say thank you for their sacrifice

India is an exotic mix of colour and sound with a dramatic divide between the rich and poor. The staff at Lalitpur Hospital have sacrificed all worldly possessions to care and support for the most vulnerable and marginalised in society. Doctors at Laltipur receive just 20% of the market pay compared to staff at government hospitals.
