In order to fulfill this objective Hazrat Pir Mohammed Shah Dargah Trust generously offered its incomplete constructed building of Bage Firdosh society situated at Sarkhej road Ahmedabad without rent and return. The understanding and co-operation between two trusts, enabled the hospital to render candid health, educational and job placement services to the society.
