We believe everyone has the right to quality care.
“Join us to bridge the gap for those who can’t afford it. Give to the Emergency Fund.”
Every day thousands of suffering people come to CMC for healing. They come from all over India and the neighbouring countries. Many of them cannot pay for the treatment that they need. CMC tries its best to provide concessional or free care to the poor. But our resources are limited and the need is great.
The Emergency Fund
The Emergency Fund was set up to help our poor patients get treatment as quickly as possible. Many travel great distances for their loved one to get better. They spend all of their life savings, and more, on travel and accommodation leaving little for their treatment.
Others come to CMC and are not expecting a major illness. But when they are told about the diagnosis and the treatment needed, they know they cannot afford it. Some have an accident that needs immediate treatment to save their lives.
Our dream is to never turn a patient away!
So, when a doctor sees a patient who needs urgent financial support, the doctor can apply for a grant from the emergency fund. This way the patient can get their treatment as quickly as possible without worrying about the finances.
Grants of up to ₹80,000 is given for a patient through the treating department. It can help patients needing ICU care, trauma care, expensive operations, cancer treatment, costly medicines, tests etc.
