At the heart of Impact Guru Foundation lies a strong commitment to ushering in a #HealthyBharatHappyBharat. Founded in 2014, we have been ceaselessly working towards affordable and accessible healthcare for all, irrespective of geographical barriers or socio-economic status.
One crucial aspect of achieving this mission is to ‘Fund Curative Care’. This principle is predicated on the belief that every individual deserves to get the best possible medical treatment without the impediment of financial constraints. Curative care refers to treatments that are aimed at curing diseases, rather than merely managing symptoms. It is about eliminating the root cause, leading to better health outcomes and improved quality of life.
However, quality curative care often comes at a high cost, making it inaccessible for a significant portion of the population, particularly in rural and underserved regions. Here’s where Impact Guru Foundation’s unique approach makes a difference. Through strategic partnerships and public generosity, we aim to bridge the gap between the need for curative care and the ability to afford it.
Curative Care in India: The Ground Reality
India has made significant strides in healthcare over the past few decades. However, a vast majority of Indians still lack access to quality curative care. As per World Bank data, out of pocket expenditure on healthcare in India was at an astounding 62.6% in 2018. This implies that most Indians have to pay for their healthcare expenses directly, placing a massive financial burden on the families, often pushing them into debt.
Moreover, public healthcare infrastructure in India is overstretched and often inadequate, leading to long waiting times and reduced effectiveness of treatment. This is where initiatives like Impact Guru Foundation’s Care-On-Wheels come into play, providing doorstep healthcare services through Mobile Medical Units (MMUs) and home visits to the most remote parts of India.
The Power of Your Contribution
By donating to fund curative care, you’re not just providing financial aid; you are giving someone a chance at a healthier, happier life. Every contribution, no matter how small, has the potential to make a massive difference in someone’s life. To give you a sense of the impact of your contribution, consider these statistics: Impact Guru Foundation’s initiatives reached more than 21,000 registered beneficiaries with treatment in 2022-23, conducting a total of 50 health camps across multiple states in India.
With your donations, Impact Guru Foundation can scale up these efforts, reaching more people, and providing more comprehensive curative care services. This includes everything from health screenings and vaccinations to treatment for diseases like diabetes and hypertension.
Partnership: Key to Effective Healthcare Delivery
Working towards the common goal of #HealthyBharatHappyBharat, Impact Guru Foundation fosters partnerships with several stakeholders, including government bodies, corporate entities, non-profit organizations, and individual donors. These “Impact Guru Foundation Partnerships” are pivotal in extending the reach of our healthcare initiatives to the remotest corners of the country.
One of the key partnerships we have forged is with the Government of India’s national urban and rural Health Missions’ Mobile Medical Units. This synergy enhances public healthcare access to people living in remote, difficult, under-served, and unreached areas.
The impact of these partnerships becomes palpable when we look at the numbers. In the year 2022-23 alone, our Care-on-Wheels initiative provided treatment to 48,647 beneficiaries. Additionally, we organized 491 awareness sessions, reaching out to 19,134 beneficiaries, including children.
Fundraising: Amplifying Impact
At Impact Guru Foundation, we believe in the power of collective action. One of the crucial ways we galvanize resources to fund curative care is through “Impact Guru Foundation Fundraising Events”. These events provide an avenue for people from all walks of life to contribute to the cause of healthcare. They also serve as a platform for spreading awareness about the importance of curative care and the role each one of us can play in enabling it.
These fundraising events range from charity runs and awareness campaigns to virtual fundraisers and galas, each designed to resonate with different audiences and maximize impact.
Conclusion: Join the Movement
To sum up, your contribution towards funding curative care can be transformative. Each donation aids us in not just curing diseases but also preventing them, improving quality of life, and promoting overall wellbeing.
As we continue to strive for a healthier and happier India, we invite you to be a part of this journey. You can support us by donating to fund curative care, participating in our fundraising events, or partnering with us in this noble cause.
