KD Foundation is a unit of Shri Harihar Maharaj Charitable Trust, which is established with the objective to reach out to all those groups of society who are in need and unable to afford prompt healthcare services.
India has one of the largest underprivileged populations in the world, with an estimated 364 million people living below the poverty line. These individuals face numerous challenges that adversely affect their health outcomes, such as inadequate access to healthcare services, malnutrition, and substandard living conditions. Access to healthcare services in rural areas, where the need is greatest, is hindered by limited resources, a scarcity of healthcare professionals, and social and economic barriers.
The objectives of the KD Foundation were initiated in response to these challenges.
According to the National Programme for Control of Blindness (NPCB), India is home to a third of the world’s visually challenged population.
Despite the magnitude of the problem of avoidable blindness in developing countries, studies have shown that only a tiny percentage of the people needing treatment seek it. Hence we decided to start an eye care community initiative “Project Disha”, to reach out to these patients at their doorsteps rather than waiting for them to arrive at the hospital’s door. Project Disha is a community initiative by KD Hospital, Ahmedabad. We aim to eradicate ‘Avoidable Blindness’ by facilitating eye care services in needy communities.
Goals and Objectives of Project Disha:
According to some studies more than 2,00,000 people in India are in need of an organ transplant each year, and the number of organs available for transplantation falls far short.
