To reduce the disability arising from childhood musculoskeletal problems including paralytic poliomyelitis, we have been associating with St. Stephen's Hospital, Tis Hazari, to financially help economically weak children undergo surgery, physiotherapy and rehabilitation to get them to be independent and walk on their own. In 2013-14 club donated Rs 3.50 Lakhs to St. Stephen's Hospital for these surgeries.
This is the most common congenital issue faced by children in India, as 75,000 children a year are born with this. Since year 2014-15, our club has been supporting club foot surgeries at St. Stephens Hospital.
We are into fourth year of our support for the Club Foot Surgeries.
During these years, our club contributed
2018-19 : Rs. 3.00 lakhs
2017-18 : Rs. 3.00 lakhs
2016-17 : Rs. 2.00 lakhs
2015-16 : Rs. 1.50 lakhs
2014-15 : Rs. 2.00 lakhs
Every time an equal amount is matched by St. Stephens Patients Welfare Association, thus doubling the amount of support of such surgeries.
In 2013-14 our Club donated Rs. 3.50 lakhs for the Polio Corrective surgeries
