COVID-19 pandemic relief
Sevalaya has helped over 100,000 people during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic that hit Tamil Nadu. We partnered with them to donate food packets, groceries and Oxygen ventilators to save people's lives.
Founding donor to build a second new school
If you have seen the Netflix movie, "Daughters of Destiny", you will be amazed. At Shanti Bhavan, the children are taken from the grips of malnutrition, abuse, and neglect and are given the loving, gentle care every child deserves. They are nurtured emotionally and educated with expectations of excellence. The result is an intellectual curiosity, a deep sense of compassion for others, optimism in their future, and a desire to use these tools to help others in abject poverty. Each year, Shanti Bhavan is forced to turn away hundreds of children, because one school cannot accomodate them all. The funds will be used to construct a second school to change the lives of many more children.
Hospice & Palliative Care
DEAN Foundation provides Palliative Care services to the urban poor of Chennai, Coimbatore and Kancheepuram. Over 80% of patients are from the lower income group. Cancer patients form about 78% of total patients treated. Once diagnosed with terminal illness, treatments stop and patients are left to live with pain management.This is where Dean Foundation steps in.
Mental health is an important topic to address in today's times when surprisingly its still stigmatized in society. We have been looking for a good partner for a while and came across SCARF India who has done tremendous work in this space from research, treatment, training and promoting awareness.
Our association with Sevalaya started with COVID-19 relief, but soon it expanded to support Education. Sevalaya was looking for funds to support children from rural areas who are unable to attend school due to the pandemic. We adopted 31 children of this school. The donations cover teachers' salaries, lab expenses, basic extracurricular activities, and basic needs such as uniforms, books, and school supplies for a student.
MCT educates underprivileged students training them to use computers and offering them vocational skills like tailoring and sewing skills.
The funds donated goes toward educating youths from towns in Tamil Nadu, India
Pediatric Cancer Care
The story of the children in the Mahesh Memorial Paediatric Oncology Centre moved us. It's heart-wrenching to hear about children lying on beds, just not knowing why they are not on a field playing like other children. They perk up when they see visitors because this is something out of their routine of injections. Most of them suffer from leukemia. They lose their hair, their appetite, and their zest for life. We are proud to partner with Mahesh Memorial Trust. The trust provides care and treatment facilities. A 20-bed hospital has now grown into a 55 bed one.
Food distribution for COVID-19 relief
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit India drastically. Even though Forest Way primarily focuses on nature conservation, organic farming and educating rural poor children, they decided to do their part and have helped more than 4500 families over the last one year providing them food relief in the form of rice and other staple food and medical help. They are now setting up a rural health centre to address health issues of women in particular.
Free surgical and dental services to underprivileged children in Peru
MMFC started going to Peru in 2003 with a team performing cleft lip and palate repairs at the Cuzco Regional Hospital.
Around 100 children are screened and cleft lips & palates, cleft lip rhinoplasties, pharyngeal flaps surgeries are performed. The dental team typically treats 75 to 100 children and more than 100 procedures are executed.
Cancer treatment for Women
When the founder, Radhika, a cancer survior was undergoing breast cancer treatment, she became acutely aware of the lack of awareness and disparities in cancer care. This was the nexus for Penn Nalam – which means Women’s Health in Tamil. The values of Penn Nalam toward promoting awareness, prevention, early detection and care resonated with us.
Ohio Wesleyan University
The fund will empower a deserving and passionate student who will change the world for the better, and perhaps in turn, pay it forward someday.
