“We rise by lifting others.” – Robert Ingersoll
The Foundation provides various services and facilities to the needy people living in the urban slums and the backward rural areas. It provides relief by way of giving them medical aid, medicines, clothes, food, ration, and other articles of daily use.
Under its project “Swasthya”( Health), the Foundation focuses on and looks after the health of the inhabitants of the slums, especially the children and women. We help the patients by giving them physical as well as financial assistance when they go to a hospital. Our caregivers and volunteers visit the hospitals regularly and attend to the requirements and difficulties of the patients. Many patients are getting treated in Safdarjung Hospital, Madan Mohan Malviya Hospital, Neptune Hospital and Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in New Delhi through the Foundation.
Nutrition is basic to good health. So we provide some source of nutrition, such as fruits, energy drinks and vitamins to young children. Keeping the nutritional needs of children in mind, we provide home cooked meals to students in our Delhi centre.
Under our programme called “Vitran” (Distribution) we distribute footwear, woollen clothes and blankets etc. at the beginning of winter season every year to the needy and homeless.
Relief and Rehabilitation of those affected by natural calamities such as floods, earthquakes, cyclones, cloud-bursts, and fires is also part of the Foundation’s agenda. Medicines, food packets, dry ration, utensils, clothes, blankets, and many other crucial items of daily use are distributed in the affected areas and in the relief camps.
On the night of 29 April, 2017 there was a widespread fire in Begumpur (Balmiki Camp), Malviya Nagar, New Delhi. Some of the children we teach have had their homes burnt down. Family members of many of our students suffered burn injuries. The Foundation has undertaken relief work for the same.
The distraught families have been provided with clothes and financial assistance. The injured and burn cases were treated in hospitals. As a long term relief, the Foundation is also helping them reconstruct their homes, by providing them construction material and financial support.
