The mission to Saving A Child’s Heart success can be attributed to a number of individuals and institutions across India and the world.
Government of Andhra Pradesh
The government of A.P has been instrumental in providing the infrastructure and funding for treatment to children with heart diseases. All major government hospitals in A.P today have cardiac screening cells from where children are referred to tertiary care centers for further treatment. Government is also providing funds towards the treatment costs for these children.
The overwhelming support of the medical colleagues viz., Pediatricians, Cardiologists and other medical professionals are a boon to this noble program. SACHi has received unconditional support from all the Pediatric Associations and the Indian Medical Associations. Members of these associations screened the children before and referred them to our free camps. This exercise helped us in offering quality time to children who need us the most.
NGO’s and Organizations
Organizations like Deccan Chronicle, Times of India, Walt Disney, Hyderabad Urban Development Authority and many other organizations helped SACHi to spread awareness and organize events. SACHi has been supported by trust associations, International organizations like Rotary International, Lions Club, Make a Wish Foundation, Disney Foundation, and Concern India campaigned for the cause and supported treatment costs of many needy and critically ill children waiting for surgery
