Oracle, Genesis Foundation, Swades & Wockhardt join hands to Save Little Hearts

New Delhi, Oct 6 (UNI) During Joy of Giving Week 'DaanUtsav2018' , four organisations have come forward to support the cause of treating children suffering with Congenital Heart Defects (CHD).
CHD, the most common congenital anomaly in newborn babies, refers to the structural heart defects during birth of a child.
Under this unique partnership, children from the Raigad district of Maharashtra will be screened for CHD and supported for their medical surgeries. Surgeries would take place in Wockhardt Hospital, globally renowned for their medical facilities and service.
Oracle began supporting heart surgeries for under-privileged children suffering from CHD throughout India in the Spring of this year. Under the Project Little Hearts, Oracle has taken a holistic approach to support surgeries with a dedicated grant of USD 100,000, plus awareness-raising activities to be planned over the course of the year.
Under the same project, Genesis Foundation struck a unique partnership with Swades Foundation to treat the children suffering from CHD in Raigad. These two organisations both believe in working at and from the grassroots level, which ensures that the work does not end at providing monetary aid but reaches the ones who need it.
Speaking about Project Little Hearts, Colleen Cassity, Executive Director, Oracle Corporate Citizenship, said, "Without treatment, CHD can be lethal. Funding care and treatment for children with CHD is one way that Oracle helps to strengthen communities, which is a focus of our philanthropy, along with advancing education and protecting the environment. We support Genesis Foundation and Project Little Hearts because we want all children to grow into healthy adults, leading happy and
productive lives."
Sharing their views on the collaboration, Prema and Jyoti Sagar, Founder Trustees, Genesis Foundation, said, "A child suffering from CHD waits for that one surgery that could change his life. There are over 2 lakh children born with CHD in the country. That implies over 2 lakh opportunities for organisations like ours to save lives. When we see other harbingers of change like us, we feel like those organisations are our partners working in other spheres.
''At the end of the day, all the welfare organisations and corporate donors working towards creating an irreversible change for our country, form a community. A community we value, for this ensures that India progresses in all its entirety. On this accord, we appreciate the support of Oracle and we are delighted to work with Swades Foundation and Wockhardt, all of whom are standing with us for the fight against CHD."
Commenting on this association, Ronnie and Zarina Screwvala, Founder Directors of the Swades Foundation said, "We are extremely happy to have Oracle and Genesis Foundation partner us in our initiative to help children with Congenital Heart Defects. We at Swades, have so far supported over 100 heart surgeries and with this partnership many more children in need will benefit. With more believers like Oracle and Genesis Foundation, our resolve to provide universal access and treatment to under-resourced kids in rural areas only gets stronger and we look forward to making
a bigger impact together."
Owing to the increase burden of CHD in the country, it becomes the responsibility of the one with the repository of the resources to do their part. It thus becomes the need to bridge the gap between the corporates of the world and the ones devoid of the resources.
Genesis Foundation and Swades Foundation are the two units of change that work towards a targeted approach in their own sphere. By recognising and reaching out to each other, they have decided to increase their impact considerably. They will be using each other's expertise in their respective areas to swiftly reach their goal of a transformed India, according to a statement here on Saturday.
