Give a society access to clean water and healthcare services, and you give them a way out of inequity. -Raju Vegesna
Access to quality healthcare and clean drinking water remain one of modern India’s biggest challenges. Though India is among the lowest cost healthcare providers, treatment costs are still unaffordable to many. The Raju Vegesna Foundation aspires to fill these gaps by helping people obtain the care they need, when they need it.
The Foundation’s Sri Venkateswara Institute of Research and Rehabilitation for the Disabled (VIRRD), in Andhra Pradesh ensures that amenities of international standards of are available to treat the disabled in India. Apart from treatment and surgeries, the Foundation conducts mobile health camps, where qualified doctors, nurses, paramedics and community health workers, travel to remote areas to offer free treatment and distributes medicines to the poor.
There can be no good health, or even education without access to clean water. Approximately 440 million school days are lost in India because of water and sanitation related diseases.
The Raju Vegesna Foundation uses scalable, sustainable technology to provide potable drinking water throughout Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in a consistent and affordable manner.
