There are 7 less privileged cardiac afflicted kids that need surgery within 2 months. The Main project SOCAN will give disbursement only after October. There are 65 Children waiting for Surgery. The disbursement which will be given first after 25th July will be enough to perform 5 Surgeries. So we need funds for another 5 kids to be operated in September. So this micro-project will allow surgeries to be performed without interruptions.

It will reduce the waiting list. More children will become normal to get back to their schools. Their performances will be better. Families will be happier. Although their economic status does not improve getting back their to normalcy gives them strength. Adolescents try to reach their ambitions. Children are better recognized by their peers. Faculty in Schools teach them with greater confidence. The country gets strengthened by increase in manpower.


Problem is the mounting number of un-operated children who either die (or) become in-operable while waiting for surgery. SOCAN attempts to touch the tip of the iceberg. Right to Life (Article 21) enshrined in the Constitution of India a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic, assures its citizens of justice, equality, and liberty, and endeavors to promote fraternity among them. SOCAN in a small way helps in establishing this Right. Inequality is breached by fraternity.

Long-Term Impact

To provide Cardiac Surgery & Follow-up for 200 kids / year steadily & surely in the long term 200 Operated useful Children will merge with the rest of the population. This addition to manpower is social in the long run. Apart from that the project will be reducing the demand albeit in a small measure. This project is replicate. Simultaneous formation of a network of such cardiac centres throughout India is possible in a long term. Careful follow-up leads to research.
