This mother’s day, treat a Tuberculosis patient to honor your mother

More than 100,000 women, suffering from tuberculosis, are thrown out of their families (every year) to die of starvation and disease. And their children suffer with them. Their suffering can be alleviated by only $50. Help us as we pledge to support these suffering mothers, and provide them with free treatment. All you need to do is:

  1. Click on http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/operation-asha/ before 14th May 2012.
  2. Select the third giving option, “gift or in honor of,” under the orange donate button on the page
  3. Make a donation

Moreover, the organization that has the maximum number of unique donors will win an extra $500 in spending money for its program. So, make a donation today! 

Project Report:

Impact till date

Following is the list of tangible impact made by OpASHA

  1. HEALTH BENEFITS
    1. 4.56 million disadvantaged people educated about TB, and the stigma attached to TB reduced.
    2. 4071 TB patients are under treatment. Treated persons regain strength and can resume normal lives.
    3. Spread of infection to 48852 persons prevented.
  2. LIVELIHOOD GENERATION: 33 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. 4071 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.
