What started off as a thought to changing the way a community lives and responds to situations lead to the formation of Shiddat Foundation Charitable Society by Dr. Sameer, a certified ophthalmologist.
Inaugurated on the 24th of October 2011, in Faridabad, Haryana, the foundation acts as a canopy for a myriad of community development activities aimed at the underprivileged.
The up and running facilities of this infant non-governmental organization, includes teaching non-formal education to children who may otherwise not receive any form of education and providing healthcare services in villages, or particular areas where healthcare facilities are not readily available.
The founder of the society, Dr. Sameer believes in providing to the masses the best possible service available. As such his society aims to raise the literacy rate among children who are willing to learn yet have been devoid of opportunities and to promote universal healthcare amongst many other projects that will be introduced in the coming months.
There are also ventures associated with the empowerment of women. These include trainings that impart them with lifelong skills to sustain self-sufficiency. These women, on most occasions, have come to seek the foundation after having been exposed to one or another form of abuse, neglect from their community.
Other projects that the foundation has in line deals with mobile ambulances, spiritual centers and rehabilitation locations, educational institutions and environmental projects that encourages a greener India.
However, as it is still up and coming, Shiddat is seeking out to YOU to take part in its effort, lend a helping hand or perhaps just pass the word around of an NGO that is sincerely attempting to make a difference. Given its less than a year old, donations including resources such as stationaries, books are also welcome to be donated to Shiddat. Even the smallest contribution will go a long way. And if YOU belong to the circle of the big bucks and your company is looking for an NGO to contribute to, you might want to seek out to the underfunded organizations such as Shiddat Foundation.
If you do not belong to all of the above, you have no cash spare but is magnimanious enough to donate your time and service, you are also welcome. What better way to spend an evening with the satisfaction that you someone’s life was changed, thanks to YOU.
