In today’s world when we open our eyes every day we thank god for choosing us for this life and for a happy day ahead, but as we open our morning newspaper our heart is filled with grief and sadness reading all the news of crimes, rapes and illness.
Something similar happen with this Bangalore based the entrepreneurial couple. Only few people like this couple take an initiative and do something and decide to help people that are going through critical illness like cancer. They have witnessed the pain and torture (financial and mental) that cancer patient and his/her family member go through as one of their family member had cancer. The poor people that can’t afford the treatment can’t survive through such situation, so they decided to make cash less cancer hospital for all needed ones that can’t afford the high cost of treatment.
Fight against cancer
A single sitting of chemotherapy costs about INR 90,000 , a full-fledged cancer treatment for the poor is a challenge. They either face shortage of quality care, or shortage of money or often are deprived from timely care. New India solemnly commits itself to the fight against cancer by ensuring to take strong steps in making sure that cancer treatment and care is available to all the needy and poor for free. Because with cancer what kills faster is the cost associated to it.
On 21st February 2018 this Bangalore based entrepreneurial couple Mr. Vijay Tata and Mrs. Amrita Tata celebrated their daughter’s birthday in a memorable way for many by announcing the launch of their dream project, ‘‘THE NEW INDIA’‘ – a self funded NGO and gifted Rs 200 crores towards building of cashless cancer care hospital for underprivileged. Actor Emraan Hashmi graced the occasion with his presence. The unique attribute about NEW INDIA is that it is self funded and it won’t accept funds from anyone. This couple has been sheltering 40 kids for 6 years and the dream got bigger to give back to society , which gave birth to NEW INDIA.
