Welcome to Garhwal Community Development and Welfare Society website

Garhwal Community Development and Welfare Society (GCDWS) is a national NGO that seeks to improve the health status of rural and indigenous populations through research, training and service delivery programmes.

GCDWS was founded in 1993 by Dr. Rajesh Singh, a trained physician and general surgeon from the Christian Medical College Ludhiana. Dr. Singh worked as a surgeon in different Mission Hospitals in India, but he was not satisfied with the kind of work he was doing. He had a vision set in his mind from childhood to render medical services to poor and needy people in the remote Garhwal Himalayas.
