Project Description

Region: South-East Asia

Country: India

Location: Bangalore

Total Budget: $44,630

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

It is said that India lives in its villages. About 70% of the Indian Population lives in rural

areas but about 80% of the health infrastructure, medical personnel and other health

resources are concentrated in urban areas. Rural healthcare in India is characterized by a

huge gap between supply and demand where the rural health care needs are met by either

limited government facilities and private nursing homes. Private Nursing Homes are mostly out of reach of poor rural population.

Located in a Rural Area, the Sri Sathya Sai Sarla Memorial Hospital is a solution for High

Quality Medical Care for the Rural Poor in and around the areas of Chikkaballapur District and

Bangalore Rural. Patients come to the hospital from neighboring districts as well. The best part is that all treatment in this hospital are totally free of cost. There are no cash counters in this hospital. Not only treatment, staying and food also are given to all the in and out patients.

They are in urgent need of some equipments for their cardiac OT. We are sure that if we make these equipments available to them, it is going to be of immense relief of poor rural people as they will get totally free treatment and surgeries.

The equipments they need is 1 No. Anaesthesia Machine, 1 No,. Patient Monitor, 1 No. OT Light with camera and recording system and 1 No. Electrocautery Machine. Total cost of all these equipments will come around INR36,60,000.00 (USD 44630).

WE will use the Grant Fund to purchase these equipments and hand it over to the Hospital

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
