Focused Area of Our Work

Emergency Response and Disaster relief

Our team along with volunteers and doctors are always first to respond to natural or manmade disasters, with principal response efforts focused on food, shelter, water, health and sanitation. We reached out to far off villages during 2013 Uttarakhand floods with emergency relief.  Uday Foundation worked to provide emergency relief materials such as food, shelter, water, sanitation and emergency supplies to the victims. Similarly, during 2014 Kashmir floods, in collaboration with Jammu and Kashmir Police and various other government and non government agencies, Uday Foundation provided emergency relief material to the flood victims. We also conducted medical camps and distributed immediate relief material  for the victims of Jammu and Kashmir Floods, Chennai Floods, Kerala Floods, Assam and Bihar Floods and most recently on coronavirus pandemic.

We also conduct regular health camps for homeless and underprivileged who find it difficult to reach the hospital. These health camps have been organised in different parts of North India, our camps covering population from remote villages to provide free primary health care and medicine services. We have already held numerous free medical camps in Delhi NCR, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Haryana.

Apart from financial contribution, a large number of individuals, organizations, institutions and corporations provided us in-kind help including clothes, dry ration, medicines, utensils, blankets  and dignity kits. We have a dedicated collection centre, where individuals visit to donate different kinds of materials. 

Help the homeless patients awaiting treatment. Unsure of next meal, without decent clothes and basic sanitation

Everyday thousands of poor patients come to Delhi for medical treatment. Apart from the medical treatment they face an everyday struggle for food, water and lodging. Majority of these patients remain in critical condition as their healthcare needs can no longer be met at a state or district level.

Since most of them are migrant patients with very limited funds, a new and unknown city like Delhi does not provide a stay which is economic, food that is hygienic and nutritious and other basic necessities become a luxury.

Lacs of poor patients and caregivers spend harsh winter or cruel summer on Delhi streets. These people remain malnourished, with lack of access to basic necessities, such as food, water and clothes.  They always remain exposed to extreme weather conditions – heat or cold. They always work through extremely harsh hot afternoons without assured access to water, food and shelter. The summer heat aggravates their fragile physical condition. Failing to cope up with intense heat & cold and it’s ill-effects, the number of deaths of homeless people is rising at an alarming rate.

As a society we face a lot of social problems today, but sadly we don’t have enough listeners. We feel there are a lot of people crying out for our help. In our capacity, we are trying our bit to support some of them and will continue to do so.  

In Memory of 14-Year-Old Chandan.

Even by Delhi’s miserable January standards, it was a bitterly cold night when we met Chandan in 2013. Volunteers with the Uday Foundation were distributing blankets to the homeless sleeping outside AIIMS. We saw Chandan, who was then 12 years old, on the pavement, covered with few blankets, moaning in pain. He was with his parents who told us that he was suffering from bone cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy at AIIMS. When they ran out of cash, the family, which had travelled to Delhi from Bihar, moved to the pavement. Read More

‘Ma’am may I go to the toilet, please’

She suffers from urinary incontinence; in simple language she does not have a control on her bladder. It’s really very difficult for her to remain dry for entire day. She has to change the diapers at regular intervals, and being a very personal matter, she cannot talk to the children of her age about the same. Today they have a new teacher in the classroom; maybe she is unaware about her medical conditions. “Ma’am May I go to the toilet, please” and the entire classroom burst into the laughter, again.

We need your help to help the homeless, who always remain invisible to us

Every year, lacs of people come to New Delhi, Capital of India for various reasons, some for seeking jobs, some for education, many others for treatment from diseases. Due to absence of medical facilities, specialty hospitals & doctors in major parts of India, there is a large section of underprivileged population, who come to the capital for getting treatments either for themselves or their family members.

These groups of people seek treatments in government hospitals. Apart from various challenges they face in their struggle to get medical treatment such as  long dates for various diagnostic tests & procedures, expensive medicines and other  treatments, the most difficult challenge they face is to get their basic needs met in the capital city of India –food, clothing and shelter.

Without sufficient money and help, these helpless people are forced to live in the open, making themselves vulnerable to attacks by seasonal diseases, bacteria and viruses. This situation worsens during the harsh weather conditions, especially in chilling winters and peak summers. The only option to avoid such a situation is to make these amenities available to them.

It is here- to help them meet these basic needs and to give them dignity that we come into picture. Through our grass root non-profit organization, Uday Foundation, we have taken it as a major challenge to save these people from such unavoidable circumstances by initiating various social drives where we provide food, clothes, sanitary napkins and other items for daily requirements.  

We encourage people to contribute by making a small in-kind donation as we feel contribution towards this cause not only gives them immense satisfaction but it also connects them with Indian culture where donating food, clothes & water is termed to be a very noble gesture.

Since our founder, Rahul Verma spent years inside and outside hospitals during the medical treatment of his son and inspiration behind Uday Foundation, he realized that there are a number of organizations working in the area of health but nobody was concerned about the caregivers.   Due to harsh circumstances these caregivers are forced to live on footpaths away from their home and family.
 We realized that apart from a good medical treatment, they also need a dignified living while treatment of their loved one continues – these include safe and hygienic places to live, meals to eat, clean drinking water etc. Please make a small contribution today. Learn More
