I am fundraising to support Deaddiction

Why am I fundraising?

We CONCERN, a NOT FOR PROFIT center  with 80G tax exemption for treatment and rehabilitation of alcohol and drug dependants, have been successfully providing medical care, psycho-social support and rehabilitation services in Chennai/Aurovillie near Pondicherry, for chemical dependents and their families for the last eight  years.
We are in need of help to run the establishment and make our Mission more effective.

What do I plan to do with the funds?

Dear Supporters,
One of the Milaap Fellows - Sriram was able to meet Bhanu at Concern(Chennai). Here is what he has to say-

"Bhanu was extremely apprehensive when some influential people in her neighborhood started giving her trouble about the rehab facility Concern - which she was running out of a rented premises in Chennai City. An alcohol and drug de-addiction center gets a lot of social stigma, and eventually she found a partner NGO which rented out their premises near Mampakkam, more than 25 kms outside of the city limits.

While the new premises is more spacious and is in much quieter and conducive environment for the rehab, the challenge of acquiring and retaining more patients in a premises so far away from the city started straining Concern's finances. Bhanu had to cease operations in Pondicherry (Auroville) to save her Chennai center. The psychiatrists who used to treat patients on an everyday basis have now agreed to visit the Mampakkam premises only one day a week, due to the distance.

Bhanu seeks to crowdfund a corpus of money to revive her operations, get out of operational debt and build a better plan for the de-addiction center".
