Provide Preventive Healthcare

Ongoing Projects

Project Location: Udaipur, Rajasthan, India

Background & Overview

Alakh Nayan Mandir is a public charitable trust established in 1997 with a mission to provide quality eye care to all segments of society, especially those who are deprived of treatment due to lack of funds. Their team has worked tirelessly to provide free and subsidized treatment to thousands of people and rendering outreach ophthalmic services in remote villages.

Alakh Nayan Mandir has done over 100,000 operations, of which 60% were free, over 941,000 sight restoring treatments, of which 40% were free, and 3,400 eye check -up camps in and around areas of Udaipur for blindness prevention and sight restoration.

Their inspiring work should not stop.

Our Objective

Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in India responsible for over 60% of all cases of blindness. In addition, the majority of the populations in Rajasthan reside in remote rural and under developed tribal regions.

The goal of this project is to cover the cost of as many Cataract surgeries as we can. This includes not only the cost of the surgery itself but also transportation to and from the hospital, pre and post-operative care, surgical equipment, checkups and follow-ups, food and accommodations during their hospital stay and much more.

Sight restoration will benefit these vulnerable populations leading to a significant quality of life improvement for those who receive aid.

Our Promise

Because of your drive to help others, we’re both able to give those less fortunate a better chance at living a fulfilling life. We are determined to see every donation exercised to the fullest where it is needed most and that you are made aware of how your help has impacted positively leading to a great and prodigious experience overall.

As of September 2021 we have donated funds to cover 160 free Cataract surgeries and through your help we can continue to support even more!

Budget: $7000

Project Location: Udaipur, Rajasthan, India

Background & Overview

Friends of Mewar is collaborating with Basic HealthCare Services, a non-profit organization, tracking and containing the spread of COVID in high-migration communities across Southern Rajasthan.

Basic HealthCare Services strives to enable marginalized and vulnerable communities lead a healthy life. BHS provides high quality and responsive primary healthcare for those who need it most upholding the values of commitment, dignity, equity, excellence, and integrity which can be observed by their efforts at every step of the way.

By working through a network of primary healthcare clinics, day-care and nutrition centers, and a primary health center in partnership with the government of Rajasthan, BHS has able to address access and quality issues of healthcare while bringing aid to impoverished communities.  However, the COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted efforts to continue these critical efforts which then adversely affects the patients and communities BHS is trying to help significantly.

Providing this crucial aid to those most impacted should be amplified and supported in every facet.

Our Objective

Delivering uninterrupted health care, including COVID related care is paramount to the quality of life and community to the most affected populations. Compromised access to healthcare leads to a downward spiral increasing disease in the population, declining of livelihoods, and staggered wages as daily life is interrupted and dismounted.

Our goal is to vaccinate 5000 people over the age of 18 within a year’s timeframe. Because of the limited resources and communications in rural and remote populations, we will work to promote trust and dispel fear in these communities. Because of the limited resources and communications in rural and remote populations, we will work to promote trust and dispel fear in these communities that would otherwise have many avoid vaccination and lead to the spread of this aggressive virus.

Strengthening health facilities and setting up health and wellness centers will also enable us to provide preventative healthcare to hundreds of patients including women in regards to care during pregnancy and child birth as well as treating severe acute malnutrition in children, and aid those suffering from tuberculosis.

Our Promise

Through the shared values, passion, and goals of Friends of Mewar and Basic HealthCare Services, we will be able to provide care to people who are often overlooked and watered down to a statistic. Making a real change and impact in people’s lives is paramount to not only the livelihood and continued health of these communities, but will serve as an example to all about how we can reach out and be that helping hand. All generosity will be acknowledged and mutually appreciated.

We are committed to supporting BHS throughout the calendar period of July 2021 – July 2022 with a  donation of $30,000 and with your help we can continue this for many more years to come to better equip the region with more preventive healthcare support!

Budget: $30,000 for 2022 – 2023

In a study conducted by Ernst & Young, by the end of 2025, India will need 175 million additional beds. This can overwhelm anyone, but the fact is 80% of the patients can avoid suffering if provided with preventive care. We have taken the first small step and have joined hands with one of India’s most considerate eye care institute: Alakh Nayan Mandir.
