Multiple Sclerosis Society of India (MSSI) was established in 1985 for the welfare and support of people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). MSSI was headquartered in Mumbai and comprised 8 chapters across the country in cities such as Hyderabad, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Bengaluru, Delhi, Indore and Kolkata. The chapters now work independently and report their financials separately. We present the financials of MSSI Mumbai Chapter (including MS Support Group Indore). The Society is a member of the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) based in UK.

Some of their activities are as follows:

  • Reach Out: MSSI aims to address people with MS on a first hand basis with constant counselling and medication guidance. It also provides them with the necessary shots and steroids that can have exponential preventive measures for cases that have been detected at early stages. They continue to work with local doctors particularly with physiotherapists to help these patients cope with the effects of MS. These shots or steroids cost between Rs1,200 to Rs1,400 each and are administered without any charges to patients coming to them; however the physiotherapists are remunerated on an hourly basis.
  • Awareness Activities: The Mumbai Chapter conducts MS Walks each year with an aim to create awareness and raise funds. They also organise World MS day annually where both patients and members of the medical profession who help the MS patients come together to discuss various issues, accomplishments and research progress made in Multiple Sclerosis. Proceeds from the Walk and World MS Day help fund the identification of MS patients, provide free supplementary medicine, physical & occupational therapy at home, disability certificates, hospital visits and telephonic counselling. Financial aid to poor patients is provided on a regular basis.
  • Camps: MSSI partners with local hospitals like Shushrusha, Wockhardt and Fortis to conduct medical camps for all the patients of MS free of cost in the city.
