Over the years we found great partnership in Institute of Rural Health Studies (IRHS) and other local organizations and sponsored events in creating awareness and sponsoring specific needs for Cancer patients. In 2020 our efforts had to slow down due to the Covid-19 pandemic; this set us back in our yearly efforts, and we took the opportunity to think about our approach. Our deliberation and determination led to a new partnership with Kid Power India in 2021 that enabled us to establish a boots-on-the-ground approach towards our mission. With the guidance and experience of Kid Power India and a local employee, in 2021, we were able to support multiple cancer awareness sessions in Bhimli Mandal, a suburban in Vishakapatnam, India. Through these sessions, many local and under-served participants, learnt about the benefits of early diagnosis, got a chance to do Q & A with medical professionals, and our follow up efforts led to references for screening/diagnosis and treatment. We are inspired by the work so far and the impact we are making. In 2022, we plan to initiate efforts in rural areas as we believe that the lack of awareness of early diagnosis and treatment options impacts the rural population much more.
We are confident that we are bringing this organization a step closer in its mission and that there is a lot more work to be done ahead of us. We would love for you to join hands in our effort by helping us meet our goal to raise 300K INR in funds to support our cause. Our fund raising is open till May 15, 2022(marks the anniversary Chandana passing away).
