Summary

In today's era, medical science has advanced tremendously and progressing however the irony lies in the fact that affordability of medical treatment is often a question of distress to society, specially for people living below poverty line. In such cases, Abhilasha Foundation sponsors surgery and treatment for the children by working voluntarily with hospitals such as Reliance, Jupiter, Nanvati Hospital and many more to fund critically ill patients so that they are not deprived of medical help.

Challenge

According to the most recent World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, India is ranked 150th in the world in terms of life expectancy and one out of three Indian adults is underweight. Overcrowded, substandard housing facilitates the spread of infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis, hepatitis, dengue fever, pneumonia, cholera and malaria.

Solution

Health is wealth but unfortunately there are people born with critical organ defects like heart mishaps and cannot afford better treatment. 49% of our funds go to medical aid. That is almost $188,000. Abhilasha Foundation provides financial medical support to BPL children. With these funds, we take care of their critical medical surgeries by working closely with private hospitals. We have successfully supported treatments and operations for more than 104 underprivileged children till to date.

Long-Term Impact

It is a well established fact that healthy people are often more efficient. Given adequate medical attention and being brought up in a clean and hygienic environment will help children make the best of their resources and use their potential to the best of their capability to become independent individuals. All these steps will help make these children productive members of society
