Gunvati J Kapoor Medical Relief Charitable Foundation supports programs in cancer care, education, healthcare, and social services with the intent to improve and sustain the standard of living and quality of life of all people with a focus on women and children.

Their activities include:

  • Patient Guidance Program: The Foundation’s flagship program, currently functional at 5 hospitals (Tata Memorial Hospital-Mumbai, BKL Walavalkar Hospital-Dervan, Sri Guru Ram Das Hospital-Amritsar, Homi Bhabha Cancer Cemtre-Sangrur, and PGIMER-Chandigarh), seeks to create awareness about cancer, and help cancer patients focus on their healing by providing assistance with respect to hospitalisation procedures, accommodation, counselling, guidance, and finance. The goal of this program has been to help patients identify important resources to decrease treatment abandonment rates and increase patient survivorship. Staff is deployed at Helpdesks and at the Chemo ward where they provide information on effective nutritional practices and coping strategies. They impacted lives of 4,260 cancer patients in FY15.
  • Healthcare: In collaboration with Central Government’s Integrated Child Development Services Project, a Malnourishment program was launched in Dharavi and Chembur to provide pregnant and lactating women with educational information, testing tools, medicine, nutrition, and diet alternatives. Around 200 women were reached out to in FY15. Cancer detection tests are carried out wherein women are screened for cancer in mammograms, ear, nose, throat, and pap smears. Cancer awareness camps are conducted to spread awareness about prevention and early detection.
  • Education: The Foundation awards a general scholarship to students from the Institute of Chemical Technology and Khalsa College. In exchange, these students are required to intern for a period of two weeks with a NGO to increase their sense of social responsibility. The Foundation also runs other educational enrichment programs like theme-based camps and supports regular school programs.
  • Community Service: In Dharavi and Chembur, the Foundation is working in the area of community development by conducting awareness sessions on the importance of personal hygiene, clean drinking water, regular exercise, and healthy and balanced diet. Under the Savalambhan Program, women based are provided with home-based tutoring (reading, writing, arithmetic) and vocational skills.
