‘Benziger hospital society’ which is a ‘not-for-profit’ organization has been undertaking several innovative initiatives like community health centres, self help groups and other social activities in order to express in concrete terms the social responsibility of such an organization. But as social contexts undergo changes, there is also a need to find ever new expressions of social commitment. The present day realities especially in the field of health care which are driven by market forces call for new and different avenues of involvement for charitable institutions of this nature. Radio Benziger is the result of a sustained and honest search for meaning and relevance in the present day contexts. Community Radio Benziger which is designed to become a people’s communication platform for their development is a most appropriate and relevant symbol of Benziger hospital’s social commitment, as an instrument to bring a hospital to the community.
Radio Benziger was established by Bishop Benziger hospital on Nov. 7, 2010 in kollam, a city lying along the coasts of the Arabian Sea in Kerala.
