Koshika Foundation is engaged in micro-charity for macro-good. We are a "not-for-profit" Foundation, focused on Eye Care, and supporting Charitable Clinics, for the poor & needy in India, among other philanthropic activities.
We are devoted to helping out in "Vision 2020", an International initiative by World Health Organisation, to eliminate avoidable blindness by the year 2020.
Towards this objective, we sponsor free Eye Surgeries for the underprivileged sections of our society. The underserved rural areas are offered "Doorstep Relief" through free Eye Camps organized by us.
We also support local communities, by distributing free medicines in Charitable Clinics managed by certain charitable institutions.
Financial contributions by Koshika's Trustees, out of their personal resources, are sought to be augmented through donations by the public at large. We guarantee that 100%* of your donations will reach the ultimate beneficiaries. Koshika's administrative & other expenses are funded separately by Trustees (out of their personal funds) or through grants from Corporates/others, specifically for that purpose.
Needy patients, identified through Eye camps & Charitable OPDs, are sponsored for free Eye surgeries at our partner Hospitals. The patients from rural areas are brought in buses to the Hospital in Delhi, provided food & overnight lodging, operated upon & sent back in buses - all free of cost for patients (beneficiaries).
We provide you detailed feedback about utilization of your donations, and also send proof of the same through a mail containing photos, names, age, addresses & type/date of surgeries performed on the beneficiaries of your kindness. These acknowledgements are sent, within 60 days after credit of the amount in Koshika's bank account, with our heartfelt gratitude & blessings of the beneficiaries.
