The Central Health Board (CHB) of the Federation of KSI Jamaats of Africa in collaboration with the Hussainy Healthcare Committee (HHC) in Ahmedabad have recently introduced accommodation facility in Sarkhej area for patients who require accommodation. The HHC being headed by Br. Ali Hasnain Dosani have been working very hard for the last several months to establish the Medical House. Previously, patients were accommodated at the Sardariya Boys Hostel which is presently undergoing major renovations to improve its condition.
