Help us help them
1. Sponsor A Child
These children urgently require life saving medicines and chemotherapy medicines to battle their illness. We can help them in their crusade by procuring and providing good quality medicines free of cost.
The company can adopt children for treatment . During this time, the bills of the child’s treatment would be sponsored by the company. On an average a child needs Rs.2500 for chemotherapy every month.
According to the amount pledged we can put a certain number of children on support of your company. To assure authenticity, the officials of the company can meet the children who are going to be put in their care and their parents. Each month the trust will provide the company with the bills of the medicines and a follow up of the child. We are already following this system with other organizations who have adopted children for treatment.
2. Donate to the Child Cancer Fund
Funds are also required for the efficient working of the child cancer fund. Funds are required for :
a) Medicines for the treatment of the patients : Aadhar provides standard and good quality medicines prescribed by the doctors in well known hospitals like Lok Nayak Jai Prakash NArayan Hospital,Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital ,All India Institute Of Medical Sciences, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute ,Sir Ganga Ram Hospital etc.
b) Nutritional supplements for these children. These may be in the form of high protein supplements and tonics. Most of these children are from poor families where their nutritional status is already poor and the illness makes it worse.
