The centre was solely supported by a small group of people, the devotees of Swamiji. As the building was completed, we received a major donation from Cognizant Technology Solutions to equip the operation theatre and the intervention area. It was a great help that enabled us to start inpatient care in July 2010.
After 3 years, in September 2013, CTS appointed a third party audit to check if the equipment was used effectively to treat the poor. An Officer, representing Centre for Social Initiative and management , conducted an extensive study and submitted a comprehensive report to CTS.
CSIM was so impressed by the services, that they did a cover story on the centre.

CTS also was quite happy with the report and came forward to help us again in 2016 March. Since the centre is comfortably equipped, we have asked for a rain check to help us in the coming years when there is a need.
We had the opportunity to partner with One World Children’s Fund , an NGO in the USA. One of the champions who connected both the organizations, visited us and validated our work and our centre was picked for a cover story in their annual news letter.
Mr Suryaprakash, a professor in a business school and also a transaction analysis specialist, made a study of the centre and presented a paper on Spiritually inspired Social Entrepreneurship, at a convention in Mumbai at IICC.
