When thousands are dying & a million are suffering

Health Cannot Wait

Join hands to ensure primary healthcare for 2 million people

Why Health Cannot Wait

As the world faces one of the worst health crises in global history in the form of COVID-19, once again the paramount importance of health has become front and centre. And yet again, the socio-economically marginalized are the worst sufferers. Unhygienic living conditions, poor sanitation and lack of awareness have only increased their vulnerability. They cannot afford private health facilities and now, the overburdened public health facilities too have become inaccessible to them.

Look around us – one pandemic has changed our world. It has become glaringly obvious – Health Cannot Wait! We are living in uncertainty every day. But for the poor, this has been their entire life. Poverty is a daunting enough burden in itself; add sickness to it and it has the power of crushing even the strongest, as we are witnessing today. Let us not let them get crushed. Join hands to ensure health for all.

Our Two-Pronged Approach

Provide primary healthcare services to the most vulnerable in urban slums, and the hardest to reach families in remote rural areas

Promote health seeking behavior and improve living conditions among underprivileged communities to prevent people from falling ill
