Project: Rotary Medical Kit "Sanjivani" for 10,000 Families by Rotary Club of Borivli

Project Site: Adivasi Area located in Mumbai & Thane Region (underprivileged Families) in District 3140.

Vision: Provide Most Essential Medicine to under privilege families and Save Life.

On a Dark, Rainy Saturday night with thunderous lightening and heavy shower around, Raju, a teenager living in Adivasi area catches fever and there is neither Doctor nor medicine available. Doctor will be available after 2 days. Condition of Raju worsens in these two days and he succumbs to illness.

One strip of Ibuprofen of just 30 cents could have saved this boy. This is the story of many such Rajus in Adivasi Area located in and around Mumbai & Thane Region. This gave birth to an idea of Rotary Medical Kit named "Sanjivani" (Sanskrit word for providing life) which will engage Rotary and will Save Lives in such situations.

This kit will have most of the necessary Over-the-counter (OTC) medicines for common ailments like cold, cough, fever, headaches, Stomach ache, tooth ache, and will also consist of Thermometer, eye and ear drops, Burn Cream, Band aids, Antiseptic Cream and many more. The kit has been designed in consultation with Doctors and Pharmacist. Each Kit will bear sticker in local language explaining the usage of various drugs and expiry dates for a particular illness.

Thru persistent efforts we could subsidies the cost of this kit to just $5.00 (1$ = Rs 60).

Sanjivani (Rotary Medical Kit) will be distributed to 10,000 Families in the Adivasi area of Mumbai and Thane Region of District 3140. This Project can be implemented in 6 to 8 Months.

Project Cost for Sanjivani Rotary Medical Kit:

1 Kit = Rs. 300.00 = $ 5.00

12500 Kits = Rs. 37,50,000 = $ 62,500.00

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%.
