Our foundation was registered in the year 1992, and in 1994, the hospital started functioning. It is located in such a vicinity that provides easy access to the services available in the center for poor people from nearby underdeveloped and drought-prone areas.
The hospital, situated on the Pune-Nasik highway (known for accidents), frequently receives cases of accidents and multiple polytrauma injuries, including fatal ones. Given the frequent occurrence of accidents, this center is a boon to the community residing in the nearby villages in terms of critical care.
Snakebite affects the lives of approximately 4.5 million people annually worldwide. It seriously injures 2.7 million individuals, including men, women, and children, and claims around 125,000 lives. The tropical regions, often plagued by underdevelopment, poor governance, conflicts, and resource scarcity, bear the greatest burden.
The evidence suggests that the highest mortality rates from snakebites occur in the world’s poorest economies. Surviving the bites does not ensure complete recovery, as thousands of victims are left permanently disabled and emotionally devastated.
We’re here to make a difference.
