  • 9,68,462 free treatments with medicines were delivered at doorstep through their mobile age care programme
  • countless others have benefitted through their advocacy for elderly rights and entitlements.

    We have a plot of land measuring 8640 sqft in the heart of Guwahati, Assam. Our parents have expired long back and we aim to construct an old-age home in their memory. The plot size allows about 16 inmates for the purposes as per the building bylaws of Guwahati. We have about Rs.15-20 lakhs only to spend for this purpose. Please advice us how to get fund for the construction of the building. Our architect says the about Rs.90.00 lakhs would be needed for this purpose to complete the building which is about Rs.1.00 crores.
