Treating 3500 poor TB patients in India & Cambodia

Dear Friend,                                                                            

"TB is the child of poverty", so said eminent Nobel Laureate Reverend Bishop Desmond Tutu.

This #GivingTuesday, let us think of those who are less fortunate, who urgently need health and hope and dignity. TB patients are amongst the poorest of the poor. Apart from a debilitating illness, they suffer great indignities and economic loss. 

It entirely through your support that OpASHA is now able to serve more than 18 million people in India and Cambodia, where we carry out TB detection and treatment of thousands of patients annually. It’s all because of you that we have established our presence in Tanzania, Peru, Dominican Republic, Uganda, Kenya and Afghanistan as well, in difficult geographies and war-torn countries.

There is an urgency about our work, as you, our supporters and donors will understand very well. Of the 10.9 million people who fall sick of TB each year, 4 million go missing. An immediate need is to scale operations to identify and treat these missing patients, who are often marginalized and live in hard to reach areas.

Please donate now to support vulnerable TB patients. With your support, the fight goes on.

Treating 3500 poor TB patients in India & Cambodia

Dear Friend,

You will be excited to hear that CSIS, The Center for Strategic and International Studies, has not only lauded Operation ASHA’s work but also declared that its innovative solution is the only way towards getting rid of TB, a deadly epidemic. CSIS is the world’s top bipartisan international security think tank.

India has more than 27% of the world’s TB burden, says CSIS. Their star reporter carried out extensive research in India to understand why a curable disease is spreading like wildfire, inspite of new drugs and new diagnostics. He met with Dr. Shelly Batra, President of Operation ASHA, and then wrote a compelling article about India's TB problem and OpAsha’s innovative solution, the only way to TB elimination.

The author explained that OpASHA’s approach saves time and money for patients by delivering medication directly to their doorstep or to accessible collection points in their neighborhood. In a world riddled with inefficiencies and shabby work, dedicated and driven NGOs like Operation ASHA shine like a beacon of light and provide hope to millions worldwide.
