The Nargis Dutt Memorial Charitable Trust
|The Nargis Dutt Memorial Charitable Trust has been in the forefront for creating awareness about Cancer by funding medicines , machines , technology , setting up hospitals , ICU’s and holding medical camps in the interiors of the country…amongst other initiatives.. It has been working closely with the Tata Memorial Hospital for almost 26 years now and many patients have benefitted from this association
The Nargis Dutt Memorial Charitable Trust has taken the initiative along with Radio Mirchi and The Tata Memorial Hospital to spread awareness, educate the people of Mumbai and dispel various myths about cancer…
There are also a lot of children currently undergoing various treatments for different types of cancers at The Tata Memorial Hospital…As you are aware most of these children come to Mumbai from other states in India for treatment and are mainly from lower economic backgrounds…Most of them find it extremely difficult to even pay for basic accomodation and medication in this city and often end up living on the footpaths outside the hospital…
One of the immediate requirements that we have noticed that these children need is rain gear…be it umbrellas, rain coats or rain shoes… and health supplements like Horlicks , Complan , Bournvita…etc
For this Mc Donalds has very kindly offered us the use of their outlets as collection centers for the contributions…Collection Boxes have been placed at the selected outlets ( Nirmal Lifestyles Mulund ,Lokhandwala Market, Fun Republic, Linking Road Bandra, Phoenix Mills, Sobo Central, VT and Colaba Causeway)
Collection boxes have been placed at these outlets and all that is required of you is to go and place your contribution in these boxes.
We will monitor the collection with the respective outlet managers and as and when required will send someone to collect these contributions…
The material collected will be taken on a weekly basis to The Tata Memorial Hospital and distributed amongst the patients…
Radio Mirchi on its part will take on this activity till the 15th August…Independance Day…when it will culminate with an event at the Tata Memorial Hospital
There will be various events planned in the next 3 weeks during the duration of this activity from blood/platelet donation drives, RJ’s reporting live from the Mc Donalds outlets, celebrity speak on radio , pediatric patients visiting the radio station and going on air ….etc….etc
