The Seth M C Damanwalla Charitable Dispensary was established in the year 1867 by Udwada Samast Anjuman, and has,  ever since its inception, served the Medical needs of Parsi and non Parsi residents of Udwada and surrounding villages. The Dispensary is only one of its kind In the area meeting the Medical needs of poor residents from the voluntary donations received by the dispensary.
