About Chiranjiv Medical Foundation
Chiranjiv Medical Foundation (CMF) is a registered 80 G certified charitable trust funding specialized medical and surgical treatment for patients from low income communities in India.
CMF was established in 1993 by the late Padmashree Dr. Surinder Kumar Sama, and Dr. (Mrs.) Kavita Sama. The trust is now operated by their family in their loving memory.
At present, CMF is focused on three areas of healthcare: Hearing deficiency, Eye diseases, and Cosmetic surgery. Read more…
CMF takes on projects based on specific patient needs that require expensive interventions, which would otherwise be inaccessible or unaffordable for patients in the weaker economic sections. Examples include Cochlear Implants for children with hearing impairment, Orthopedic implants and prostheses, cosmetic surgery for cleft lip and acid burns, and eye surgery for squint and other anomalies.
We provide aid to patients directly. Patients are referred to us through agencies that conduct health camps, such as Ritinjali Mahipalpur, and corporate partners engaged in preventive health, such as HCL. At times, patients also approach us for help directly.
We do not engage any other NGO for the deployment of our funds, or execution of our work. All activities are supervised by the CMF team directly.
Our work is usually transformative for the patients. Through our focused approach, we are able to provide a life-changing contribution to the lives of less privileged patients.
CMF is managed by a small but dedicated team of healthcare professionals that believe in our cause, and take great pride in our work. Together we hope to make a large contribution to the equitable delivery of healthcare in India.
Our Network Of Doctors
CMF is privileged to be able to work with a network of very distinguished physicians and surgeons that share our goal of bringing the benefit of medical technology to low income patients
At Chiranjiv Medical Foundation, we rely heavily on the willingness of doctors to donate their time and expertise to our cause. All doctors working with CMF are highly qualified, and leaders in their field. They have in common a commitment to provide the best possible care to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
We consider access to quality healthcare a basic human right, not a privilege to be enjoyed only by the affluent.
Doctors associated with CMF perform complex surgical procedures for deserving patients, in most cases without charging fee, or at a very nominal cost.
