In 2009, a group of individuals in USA came together with the goal of setting up a world class medical facility in New Delhi, India, to serve the Southeast Asian community. To help start this initiative, a nonprofit organization – American & Asian Indian Charitable Trust (AAICT) has been formed in India as well as in United States.
The intent of this US based organization is to promote the mission of AAICT in India by raising funds, getting people involved, and promoting awareness of the situation in the subcontinent.
We wish to start out by sponsoring children in India who have Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and are unable to pay for their treatment. This will cover the complete treatment, prescription drugs, provide nutrition, and a place for immediate family members to stay during the treatment.
Our long term goal is to build a nonprofit children’s hospital in India whose mission will be to provide world class care and treatment to terminally ill children in India and countries in southeastern region.
A key endeavor of AAICT will be to formalize a tie up with a renowned children’s cancer hospital in the United States so that the facility in India may receive help with treatment as well as in training its personnel in child cancer care and treatment.
