Project Dhadkan : From vision to action
Every year operating 100 sick hearts
National Medicos organisation , Haryana (Trust) and Abhyudaya trace its association with Project Dhadkan back in the holy lands of Badrinath.It was a small group of people who envisioned the framework of this project with the sole aim to heal the needy. Little did they know that this initiative is about to echo across such a large area.
Project Dhadkan aims to sponsor 100 -150 cardiac surgeries every year for the poor beyond the barriers of caste, creed, region, religion, race, language, gender and colour.
The project covers cardiac conditions like by-pass surgeries , Congenital Heart defects , Heart valve defects and Interstitial Lung diseases .
It was both National Medicos organisation, Haryana (Trust) and Abhyudaya who worked together tirelessly and turned this vision into a commendable reality.
“When we strive to do something good , everything around us becomes supportive.”
The success of project Dhadkan can be attributed to the strong back and financial assistance provided by The Hans foundation and Mata Shree Mangla ji. Had they not been a source of inspiration and motivation, the project would not have been able to provide new healthy lives to the needy.
