While the rain gods dance upon us, we will shower you with our updates.
Here in India, the power cuts gave Dr. Shelly Batra, President, Operation ASHA, time to ponder and put some life-instances on paper. She takes us back to her medical school days in her blog. Read the story of Potla, a 10-year old boy who was bedridden because of TB. Read how “A patch of blue” can offer hope and heal when all else fails.
And in the US, Kevin Desharnais, Chair of Board, Operation ASHA, USA, has decided to run The Bank of America- Chicago Marathon and raise funds for Operation ASHA. Read more about what inspired him, and help him turn this into a financial success! Every $50 raised will treat one patient and save a life. There is no minimum contribution, and you can choose to sponsor per mile or in a lump sum.
