Medical Aid Fund
We supported 17 families with medical assistance in 2019-2020
The Medical Aid Fund was launched during the Gudi Padva Sneh Milan Programme of 2009. From this Fund, the Sabha began providing one-time assistance for hospitalization expenses.
During the year FY2017-18, the Sabha received Rupees Fifty Lakhs bequeathed by Shri Gurpur Dattananda Bhat for providing medical aid. In order to optimally utilize the funds available, the Committee decided to credit these funds to separate endowment called Medical Aid Endowment Fund (Critical Illness), with the interest therefrom to be used for assistance towards critical illnesses. 23 critical illnesses have been defined.
