In society, there are several people who wish to help the poor people who are infirm or unwell. Dera Sacha Sauda offers free decentralized health care programs starting from Mega Screening camps to local free check up initiatives. Also, the handicapped are not neglected. Helping a person who does not have access to care is a paramount responsibility of all citizens. The specialized services that are provided in the free mega camps include Cardiology, Cancer, Dermatology, Gynecology, ENT, Ophthalmology etc. In fact, some of these services may not be commonly available even at the district level in certain parts of India. The mobile hospitals are utilized for providing outreach care in distant areas. Similarly local camps are held at various places. Local level medical care camps (where diagnosis, opinion and free medicines are provided) are an ongoing feature. These preventive cum curative health care interventions span across scores of districts across several states in India. It facilitates outreach care to those who are sorely in need. One notable feature is that patients are also given free services in the alternative systems of medicine, namely Ayurveda and naturopathy. From the rural to the urban level, free medical camps are a routine.

Guruji defines humanitarian as the sum total of our thoughts and actions to help, when we see someone else in distress.
