The project provides “Jeevandaan” to the people who die because of no food during illness.
In this we provide help of nutrition food to the people suffering from TB and they can cure. However, they don’t even have to eat food to survive or to meditate.
This program is aimed at patients being treated in BMC & TMC hospitals. After conducting a survey at hospitals we come to know about their financial and physical condition. After which we extend support to patients in dire need.
Aarna Foundation started this project Jeevandaan from 2018.

So please help / donate before it is too late.
India has the world’s highest tuberculosis (TB) burden, with an estimated 26 lakh people contracting the disease and approximately 4 lakh people dying from the disease every year. The economic burden of TB in terms of loss of lives, income and workdays is also substantial.
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) is implementing an ambitious National Strategic Plan with the goal to achieve SDG End TB targets by 2025. The challenge of tuberculosis requires a multi-sectoral response to address the social determinants like nutritional support, living and working conditions, and an increase in access to diagnostic and treatment services. For effective engagement of the community in the path towards ending TB in India, MoHFW is implementing the “Community Support to TB patients – Pradhan Mantri TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyaan
Ni-kshay Mitra (Donor) for this program include co-operative societies, corporates, elected representatives, individuals, institutions, non-governmental organizations, political parties and partners who can support by adopting health facilities (for individual donor), blocks/urban wards/districts/states for accelerating response against TB to complement government efforts, as per the district-specific requirements in coordination with the district administration. The State and district administration will support Ni-kshay Mitra in prioritizing districts and provide guidance on critical gap analysis and district-specific needs. The support provided to the patient under this initiative is in addition to the free diagnostics, free drugs and Ni-kshay Poshan Yojana provided by National TB Elimination Programm (NTEP) to all TB patients notified from both public and private sector.
