EDISON, NJ (TIP): NPZ Law Group, P.C., along with other benefactors, made a financial contribution to help build a brand new medical clinic for children and mothers of the Kalwa slum in Mumbai, India. The group decided that the most befitting way to honor Mr. Michael Phulwani, who is one of the Managing Attorneys at Nachman Phulwani Zimovcak (NPZ) Law Group for his professional achievement would be to improve the lives of the Indian
community which he so proudly and passionately serves.
Mr. Phulwani was recently recognized by New Jersey Law Journal with the Professional Excellence 2015 Lifetime Achievement Attorney of the Year Award.
The medical clinic was opened on August 16th, 2015, thanks to financial contributions and the working partnership between Gabriel Project Mumbai and Doctors for You. The Shravan Health Center, which will provide medical services for a community of 120,000 people, including thousands of children and hundreds of prenatal/postnatal women in Kalwa, was named in memory of Shravan Sharma, an 11-year-old boy who died last year due to lack of accessible health care in the slums.
“This clinic is a life-saving initiative for the children of the Kalwa community who, until now, had no access to basic medical care,” said Jacob Sztokman, founder of Gabriel Project Mumbai that spearheaded the initiative.
“Shravan’s death was a wake-up call about how many preventable deaths there are among children in the slums. This clinic will be transformative for the entire community, saving lives of children and promoting basic health and medical care.”
