The Abheraj Baldota Foundation
This foundation was established as the Abheraj Baldota Foundation (ABF) named after our Founder Chairman Shri Abheraj Hirachand Baldota who was well known as an industrialist, philanthropist and a social worker. The Foundation is a registered Charitable Trust, through which we route our contributions to social welfare including all our contributions to health care facilities and assistance towards health care. The Foundation since its inception in 1976 has been a vehicle for our social commitments and contributions.

We have provided financial support to poor families and members towards medical facilities and expenses. Support for patients with varied ailments was given by contributing to cover their costs of hospitalization, surgery and medical expenses. We have also contributed towards the functioning of hospitals which needed up gradation and addition of its hospital facilities. Contribution towards the purchase of an ambulance cum an emergency Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to a hospital was made, that undertakes cardiac surgery and care for poor people. Eye camps were conducted at the nearby hospital namely Nethralakshmi Vaidyalaya which helps people in screening eye diseases, following which a few were also able to undergo eye operations. We also gave donation to the Anandrishiji Hospital and Medical Research Center, Ahmednagar towards providing health services for poor and needy patients.

Other than contributing towards health and access to health in the Hospet region, we have also have made financial donations to an Endoscopy Research Foundation in Mumbai. Through our donations the Foundation has established the Abheraj Baldota Cancer Detection Center at the Institute of Advanced Endoscopy. This centre with its latest of technology provides for early detection and cure of cancer ailments, specifically that of the abdomen. The centre also has reservations for patients referred from Government or Municipal Hospital, thus providing access to those who do not have access to these facilities currently.

Looking beyond health care, community infrastructure facilities have also been addressed through our foundation. The ABF has contributed towards road illumination and also constructed bus stop near Vijayanagara College, Hospet for public use.
