One of the most fundamental needs of developing countries like ours is medical assistance and healthcare support. The objectives of the Hope Foundation and Research Centre provide for supporting causes that seek medical attention.
A number of cases have been aided by Hope Foundation by mobilising funds, extending financial assistance for cases of hospitalisation and treatment for cataract and associated surgeries. The idea is to contribute in meaningful, sustainable ways to help bring about a change – however small it may be – in the lives of those less fortunate.

Covid Relief Activities
Natural disasters, unpredictable as they are, can most often be devastating to the people affected by it. They not only cripple the lives of the victims; but can invariably affect the country – regardless of its economic or political standing. Disasters can wreak havoc causing an unpredictable long recovery process.
Hope Foundation and its educational and research entities are committed to their role as disaster support entities. The focus is to step up their assistance and contribute in terms of materials and utilities post a disaster. It provides relief and through needs assessments, Hope Foundation through its educational and research divisions provides assistance to victims from adversity. These reach out initiatives bolster the social responsibilities of the Trust / Society while instilling in the student volunteers a sense of responsibility towards their brethren in times of need.
