Help the aged population of Dharavi survive illness and abandonment
Shield Foundation, in collaboration with Lokmanya Tilak Municipal General Hospital, runs a weekly OPD service in Dharavi, providing medicines and specialized services like physiotherapy, cataract screening and nutrition aid, ALL FREE OF COST. Referral to LTMG Hospital is provided to those who need advanced treatment. Our team members often escort the aged to Sion Hospital, since many cannot travel alone and don’t have even a single family member willing to accompany them.
We are a small NGO and a team of about seven people. We try our best to reach the places where no one else reaches and share our hearts with the ones who not only suffer the ravages of poverty but have been abandoned in the twilight of their lives. Through your contribution, we will be encouraged to scale our efforts and bring about significant change in healthcare services, in Asia’s largest slum.
