Established in 2014, this NGO’s mission is to provide longer and more fulfilling lives to underserved adults and children in the ignored communities of India and aboard. Their mission is to not only provide short-term solutions by treating only the symptoms. Instead, this NGO targets the problem itself by providing communities with the best possible medical care- free of charge.
