Story

United Charitable Foundation Was Founded In 2014 With The Sole Objective Of Helping The Impoverished Get Medical Help For Their Various Ailments.

95% Of The Funds Are Utilized For Medical Needs Of People From The Lower Economic Strata.
5% Of The Funds Are Utilized For Helping Deserving, Impoverished Students For Educational Purposes.

As An Extraordinary Project, In May 2016, We Successfully Undertook A Water Mission, To Provide Half A Million Liters Of Drinking Water In Drought Affected Areas Of Maharashtra

United Charitable Foundation Has A Strict Zero Expense Policy. 100% Of The Donations Are Used For Charitable Purposes. No Salaries, Expenses, Utilities, Rents, Allowance, Etc. Are Paid From The Foundation’s Funds.  All Expenses Are Paid By The Managing Trustee, Mr. Sameer Iqbal Chhapra From His Personal Funds.  There Are No Expenses, Because The Foundation Is Run From The Personal Business Office Of Mr. Sameer Iqbal Chhapra.

80% Of The Funding Is Done By The Chhapra Family, i.e. The Trustees. Rest Of The Funding Is Through Donations From Close Friends & Family Members. Donors Vary In Size And Give Anywhere Between Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 2,00,000. But The Big Donors Are Rare And Infrequent. During This Covid Pandemic, Our Foundation’s Funds Have Run Dry. However, We Still Receive A Sizeable Influx Of Patients On A Daily Basis, Seeking Help. 

United Charitable Foundation Is A Duly Registered Trust. We File Our Accounts With The Relevant Taxation Departments.  We Have 12A Registration Certificate And 80G Registration Certificate. Our Bankers Are Union Bank Of India, Byculla Branch, Mumbai And Axis Bank, Mazgaon Branch.

We Receive Patients And/Or Their Family Members At The Personal Business Office Of Mr. Sameer Iqbal Chhapra, On A Daily Basis.  We Collect The Necessary ID Documents And Hospital Expense Estimate Letter. We Do Our Due Diligence In Maximum Two Days. After The Necessary Verifications And Diligence Is Done, We Issue A Cheque In The Name Of The Hospital Where The Patient Is Being Treated. We Are Issued The Receipts In The Name Of The Trust, Directly By The Hospital. In Some Cases, Where Possible, We Guide The Patients And/Or Their Family To Other Trusts, Government Schemes To Avail Help From Those Quarters.

We Have Several Fixed Monthly Beneficiaries. Some Of Them Require Several Sessions Of Dialysis Each Month. Some Require Life Saving Medication Each Month. Besides Hundreds Of Walk In Beneficiaries Each Year, We Cater To The Fixed Monthly Medication Needs Of Almost A Dozen Children Suffering From Kidney Diseases. We Have Been Providing Their Medicines Free Of Cost For The Last Several Years. These Children Need Monthly Medicines Like Micophenolate, Cyclosporin, Adphos, Rocaltrol, Erypro Prefil, Tacrolimus, Etc.

We Have No Plans On Spending Any Donation On Any Kind Of Infra Structure, Salaries, Utilities Or Any Other Expenses. As Already Informed, We Are A No Expense Charity. All Donations Are Always Going To Be Used Exclusively For Beneficiaries’ Medical Needs. None Of The Donation Monies Are Invested Or Put At Risk Ever. All Donations Are Kept Available In The Bank Accounts Of The Trust For Immediate Use For The Beneficiaries.

We Hope This Gives You A Glimpse Into The Work We Are Doing. We Can Share Our Bank Account Statements For Full Transparency And Clarity. We Can Share Hundreds And Thousands Of Beneficiary Records. These Beneficiaries Have Been Helped By United Charitable Foundation For Their Various Medical Needs.
