“The Kurla clinic was flooded very badly. After that, we took an initiative to give out snacks and tea to people who were stranded at the station or even those in our clinic who came in for shelter. However, as the situation started getting worse, we started this service in every clinic,” said Dr Rahul Ghule, the man behind the concept of ‘One Rupee Clinic’.

“We have arranged at our Chembur head office. Its 4000 sq. feet. The main idea is to facilitate to people as much as we can,” he added.

‘One Rupee Clinic’ is the brain child of Dr Rahul Ghule and his younger brother Dr Amol. ‘One Rupee Clinic’ has been in different places at Dadar, Kurla, Ghatkopar, Vashi, Wadala Road and Mulund stations.
