About Aster Sick Kids Foundation
Tens of thousands of children suffer from life – threatening diseases and yet have no hope of recovery/survival, as their families cannot afford expensive treatment.
Aster Sick Kids Foundation(ASK Foundation), a charitable arm/unit of Aster DM Foundation , Kochi, India strives to provide every child with world class health care regardless of their financial background. We meet expenses of life saving treatment to needy children under 18 years, hailing from under privileged families. A child in need of quaternary medical care leads the family to huge financial burden; prolonged illness could completely wipe out whole savings and even assets. At times, helpless parents are forced to even give up their jobs to take care of their little ones.
Advanced life support, cancer care, transplants and neonatal intensive care prove prohibitively expensive to most. Many deserving children are denied advanced medical care simply due to financial constraints. ASK foundation tries to bridge this gap and offer the best of medical care even to the poor. It’s a sincere attempt to save poor children who have lost all hope to serious illness and bring them back to a promising life, which they richly and truly deserve.
