Aadhar is a non-profit organization managed by a group of dedicated professionals in an effort towards helping the economically underprivileged child cancer patients. Started in 1998, Aadhar has assisted over 600 children in their cancer treatment. This is made possible by the hard work of the trustees and the many volunteers who have worked for Aadhar with their heart and soul. Last but most definitely not the least, our work is made possible by our donors, whose contributions have saved many lives. Our core team consists of :
Our aim is to make quality medication available for poor children with cancer. We acquire quality medicines from reputed companies and make them available to patients on a cycle-to-cycle basis. Aadhar also occasionally helps patients and their families in getting radiotherapy and surgery.
Over the years, we felt the need to help cancer patients by providing them the latest information regarding medical care, to educate them on peripheral facilities required for rehabilitation, to give emotional support to the patients and families and other issues.
Cancer, apart from being financially burdensome, is an emotionally-devastating disease. A lot of these children while undergoing treatment are isolated as they are cut off from their friends because they are unable to attend school and are generally unable to play with their peers.
In our country, more than 70% cancer patients go to a doctor at the terminal stage, owing to lack of information and awareness, especially in economically-challenged sections of society. The lack of quality and accessible material on this subject has hindered our fight against this disease.

You can donate to Aadhar with confidence that the funds will be utilized for the treatment of poor child cancer patients. Patients are constantly being referred to us for various types of chemotherapy and supportive medications which they need for treatment. Treatment can cost upto Rs. 8000-10,000 PER CYCLE. Treatment depends on the diagnosis, and in cases of Leukemia, it goes upto two and a half years. Your contributions help to ensure that needy patients will not have to stop their treatment due to lack of funds.
Through Aadhar, you can 'adopt' a child for the duration of his or her treatment. During this time, you may be able to partially or fully fund the treatment of the child sponsored by you. Based on the amount pledged, you may even be able to fund the cost of medication of more than one child. Aadhar may even be able to arrange for you to meet the child or his/her parents whose treatment you sponsor. In any case, Aadhar will be able to provide, on request, periodic updates on the progress of treatment of the child/children whom you may choose to sponsor.
Aadhar uses upwards of 97% of the funds it receives from donors towards
providing medicines for child cancer patients. We are able to keep administrative
costs low only because everyone who works for Aadhar does so voluntarily
