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.
