Impact till date

Following is the list of tangible impact made by OpASHA

  1. HEALTH BENEFITS
    1. 6,80,000 Disadvantaged slum-dwellers educated about TB, and the stigma attached to TB reduced.
    2. 690 TB patients are under treatment. Treated persons regain strength and can resume normal lives.
    3. Spread of infection to 8280 persons prevented.
  2. LIVELIHOOD GENERATION: 6 persons from the slums have been employed full-time by OpASHA. It may be mentioned here that 80% of OpASHA’s expenses generate livelihood in the slums.
  3. ECONOMIC BENEFITS:
    1. 690 patients are receiving TB treatment. TB treatment reinstates the productivity of the patients. Each patient earns an additional Rs. 6,000 per year after treatment for her lifetime (Government of India). This is equivalent to an annuity of Rs. 75,000 a huge amount for people earning Rs. 50 a day or less.
    2. OpASHA delivers Social Return on Investment of 3517%. For each Rupee donated to OpASHA, society gains benefits worth Rs. 35.17. This indirectly helps improve the lives of millions of slum-dwellers.

We have been able to support these disadvantaged TB patients only because of your continued love and support. Make a donation today and help us further in achieving our mission of eradicating tuberculosis.

Thank you.
