Covid-19 Updates from EHA Hospitals


Emmanuel Hospital Association (EHA) is a fellowship of Christian institutions offering consistent, compassionate care to vulnerable communities across India through the provision of health care, education, and development programs.

Emmanuel Hospital Association Canada was founded to support and promote the work of EHA abroad. Since 1999, our Board of Directors has worked to fundraise, foster prayer, and raise awareness for both our parent organization and for other Christian organizations whose work in India is aligned with EHA’s mission and values.

Why India?

Abraham Ninan, our co-founder and Executive Director, served as one of the founding members of EHA in India nearly 50 years ago. When he and his wife, Leela, moved to Canada in the late 90s, they hoped to bridge the compassion and generosity they saw in their new home with the need which they had encountered through their work with EHA in India.

Nearly 20 years later, EHA Canada still sees a need for this bridge. The individuals we serve continue to face prejudice, marginalization, and poverty. By pairing the generosity and prayers of our global support base with the skills and knowledge of our partner organisations in India, we bring hope and transformation to the lives of India’s most vulnerable.

Mission: To relieve suffering, promote holistic health, aid community development, and foster education among India’s poor and marginalized.

Vision: Transformed and thriving individuals and communities across India.

Clinical Services and Community Health Projects

20 hospitals and 42 community health projects serve people in 12 North and North Eastern states of India.

Emergency Assistance during Disasters

Immediate response during disasters includes providing, food, shelter and medical care. EHA also provides long-term solutions by training communities in disaster risk reduction and stabilization.

Co-operation with other Agencies

EHA has a robust educational program including 7 nursing schools, Pediatric postgraduate education, Family Medicine training and ongoing programs in neonatal resuscitation care and emergency obstetrics. There are also 2 English Primary Schools.

Spiritual Ministries

Recognizing physical, economic, and social solutions do not go far enough, EHA has a spiritual emphasis. Through its entire staff including a pastoral team and other partners EHA seeks to address spiritual issues.

Focus on the Poor

The poor and marginalized including a large number of Dalits suffer from limited access to basic health care and inadequate community services. EHA seeks to transform communities with special emphasis on the poor and marginalized in the name and spirit of Jesus Christ.
