Reality Gives just recently connected to another great organisation operating in Dharavi: Barefoot Acupuncturists. The system is as simple as effective: Acupuncture experts from India and abroad provide high-quality treatment to the underprivileged community of Dharavi. The professional therapy that is known to treat diseases where the conventional western medicine is limited, costs just Rs 20 or less for the slum dwellers.
The non-profit organisation is funded by donor patients in India and abroad. Barefoot Acupuncturists opened another clinic in Bandra East where patients from a higher level of prosperity can come for a world class treatment. For a minimum charge of Rs500 the supporters can heal their body as well as prevent diseases and in the same time they support the medical treatment of other less fortunate patients from Dharavi.
Acupuncture is an effective medical treatment especially for slum dwellers since it’s safe, has no besides effects and doesn’t require expensive medicine or surgery. Acupuncture works by activating the body’s internal ability to heal itself by stimulating specific points in the body by fine needles.
Barefoot was founded by the Belgian acupuncturist Walter Fischer who regularly invites experts from all over the world who teach the local staff in the traditional chinese medical methods.
The Team of Reality Gives and also our VIP visitor Frank Leboeuf (who came to visit our Dharavi Girls Football Program) started to receive treatments themselves and are very satisfied by the results. Especially the very friendly team from Barefoot makes the weekly visits a pleasure.
If you want to support the clinic in Dharavi and in the same time treat yourself an alternative way of healing, get in contact with firstname.lastname@example.org or call 022 2657 1025/+91 98671 67649 /+91 98927 47556.

We highly recommend to visit he clinic to at least receive a medical check up through their modern technology and treatments afterwards.
