We gladly welcome more Patron-Members for our AAPI Charitable Foundation.
The lifetime pledge to be a Patron-Trustee membership is $10,000, which is a one-time donation for individuals. Since voluntary donations are at an all-time low, the AAPI-Charitable Foundation is making a plea for more Patron members. (We proudly announce that all current AAPI-CF -executive committee and past AAPI–Charitable-Foundation Presidents are Patron Trustees.)
We are all aware of the disastrous floods that have plagued Uttarakhand. Torrential rain and floods washed away buildings and roads, killing of hundreds people in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand. Soldiers and other workers reopened dozens of roads by building makeshift bridges, accelerating the evacuation of nearly 80,000 people. The River Ganga and its tributaries are flowing above the danger mark in several areas in the Himalayan state. Over 2 Million people are displaced and are in dire need of help and support. AAPI Charitable Foundation (AAPI-CF) is organizing relief efforts and providing humanitarian assistance.
As we approach the end of 2013, we close an amazing year with sincere thanks to each and every one of our volunteers, donors and supporters. Throughout our 20 years of service, you have remained steadfast in helping us advance our mission of making quality medical care available to people in USA and in India.
Congratulation to Sanjeev Arora, Founder of Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes,) a global model to increase access to high-quality health care by expanding workforce capacity and evidence-based medicine..
