Dream Foundation Cancer Fund
Mumbai

Dream foundation is a charitable trust established in 1986 by Mr. KM. Aarif for the cause of cancer care. Since 1995 the foundation is functional with a prime focus on empowering people to cope with the trauma of cancer, providing financial aid for medical treatment, counseling, rehabilitation support during cancer treatment, education of cancer survivor children and empowerment of women and their families. The foundation works closely with each volunteer and helps the deprived by providing information about cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, guidance, and counseling to cope with cancer. The foundation's strategic direction focuses explicitly on the challenges faced by the scourge of cancer. The fact of life that keeps the trust going is that only about 30% of the patients diagnosed with cancer undergo treatment because of the high costs and many dropout halfway having run out of money as the average cost of cancer treatment is as high as inr 2-3 lakhs. In order to maximize its resources and le­verage the foundation's strength, grant making is organized around five thematic lines of support. - Guidance, emotional support and counsel­ling. - Aid for medical treatment & rehabilitation - health awareness - empowerment of cancer affected families - proactive schemes for their children's education ensure that these excluded people get necessary support that affect their lives positively. Health equity: financial aid for medical treatment in govern­ment hospitals, which is the basic minimum, still runs into hundreds of thousand of rupees. This aid cannot be extended from a single source point. Donors around the globe can join hands with us to ensure financial aid to the extent possible. For a poor person a diagnosis of cancer is the equivalent of death. Only about 30% of the patients diagnosed with cancer undergo treat­ ment because of the high costs and many drop­ out halfway having run out of money. Educational support: a cherished aim of dream foundation is to assist economically weak cancer-affected fami­lies to educate their children, thereby giving them opportunities for a better future. Their dependent children are doubly deprived. Dream foundation believes that from the developmen­tal angle, educational support for them is a pri­ority. Counselling: our counsellors are both professionals and non-professionals who have confidence in their own identity and do not apologise or try to obscure it. They represent achievement and hard earned wisdom about dealing with cancer afflicted pa­tients. Goals: to advance health equity by pursuing the reduction of unfair differences and providing tangible support to as many excluded people as possible. The 20th century and the beginning of the current century generated tremendous techno­ logical, economic and social change of which one result has been a dramatic increase in both life expectancy and quality of life. Yet a ma­jority of these advances have accrued to a very small fraction of human kind. Progress in health has not been equally distributed, either among or within societies. While some of these health inequalities may be considered unavoidable, others are deemed unjust and therefore ineq­uitable. Achievements: at present we have more than one thousand cancer patients of age groups between two and seventy years who regularly receive financial support, guidance, counselling and family support. Monthly financial allocation are made to keep their kitchen fire burning. Dream foundation is a registered charitable public trust established in 1986 in mumbai, India. It is professionally managed and functions within the prescribed regulatory frame work for non-profit organizations in India.
