History

It came out of a dream. A dream of realization after seeing a number of my community suffering from the deadly diseases called Hepatitis. The pains, agonies, and suffering of them made me realize the futility of dealing with the local hospitals. So we had a discussion about the dream. Quite a number of times, we fail to come with guts and confidence about setting up an organization. But the hope and confidence my families laid upon me were immense. So in 2016, we decided to take our first baby step of assisting the patients suffering from Hepatitis.

Now, after a span of one year, our NGO is full fledged with the number of patients from the various remote areas asking for our help. In 2016, we carried our first project at the Sonamling settlement at Leh Ladakh. There we came to know the critical situation of Hepatitis after some presentations and conversation with local people’s. Many were unable to go for the basic test due to the high charges and the lack of facilities at Leh. Realizing the dire need of our help, we contacted Dr. Anil Arora (Gastroenterology) Shri Ganga Ram Hospital for his assistance to remote area people’s. Fortunately, we were able to get the DNA test done for INR 20,000 for twenty people’s even though the actual cost for twenty peoples comes in the range INR 140,000. For new thirty patients are under the process of medication under our NGO. We are more motivated and determined in taking our steps closer to the dream we once dreamed.

Now people from remote area approach us in assisting them to help in curing some other diseases like cancer, cardiac and neurological disorders. So we are doing our best in trying to help them to the best of our ability through our prime motive is to assist the patients in dealing with Hepatitis. We receive a constant list of patients from the chief representative, an officer of Leh regarding the Hepatitis. We are dealing with them on a regular basis with the financial stakes, adjustability and to some extent to the point of accommodation. Seeing the joy on the face of the peoples, we are more determined in taking “Altruism in action” to further level of bringing out the huge amount joy and respect amount the folks.
