About NGO:

Dr K S Sanjivi envisaged and made available health and medical services to the poorest of the poor through the establishment of the Voluntary Health Services in 1958.   The underlying ethos of VHS is that of prevention and cure of serious illness, fostering of the family as a unit for medical care, and facilitating active community participation in the provision of a continuum of health care, with special reference to disadvantaged groups such as women, children and elderly.

Fund Usage:

The target amount to be raised is Rs. 80 lakhs. It will go towards the following cause – Equipment to enable VHS to perform free heart surgeries for 250 infants every year. With your donation, it is proposed to purchase equipment for a paediatric cardiac surgical unit at VHS campus in Taramani, Chennai. A trained and competent team (from Sri Ramachandra Medical University and Malar Hospitals) comprising a paediatric cardiac surgeon, cardiologist and intensivist will run the unit. Besides these personnel, the unit will also employ a cardiac pefusionist, trained nurses in the operating room, intensive care unit (ICU) and the wards. The unit will be supported by the VHS administrative body and will have the ancillary services of the hospital at its disposal.Read more about the cause here
