Project Purpose

We have a very reputed past service history in providing various health services to the rural people of the area through our community out reach programmes, rural medical camps and also through the base hospital established at Trichirappalli district of Tamilnadu.

Need for various medical Intervention

a) Ophthalmic Care programmes


In Tamilnadu at present as on the previous survey done by Tamilnadu state ophthalmic cell, there are 5lac persons blind with both eyes and out of these 68% are due to cataract. Hence in Tamilnadu there is a backlog of about 3.4lac blind persons having cataract. It is estimated that in tamilnadu there is an addition of 1lac cataract cases every year. At present 1.02 to 1.5lac cataract operation are being performed every year, since last four year, which includes significant contribution from help age India too. Thus for Tamilnadu it is not difficult to control blindness within 3 to 5 years by setting up priorities and increasing efforts to perform 2.5lac cataract operations every year. In Tamilnadu about 60% of the workload are being performed by NGOs. It is there for very essential that maximum avenues should be explored to support the noble endeavors of all the NGOs, which are playing a significant role in reducing the prevalence of blindness in the state of Tamilnadu. New Life Trust as a pioneer NGO has also played a vital role in reducing the backlog of cataract, by ay of performing an average of 5000, cataract surgeries every year in Tamilnadu. Our strategic plan for implementing the ophthalmic care programmes covers, the entire Tamilnadu scaling up of our programmes is entirely depends on the availability of the funds.


The problem of blindness is complex because of its gigantic size, multiple cause, shortage of trained ophthalmic personnel and rural urban imbalance of the available scare resources. The survey conducted by Government of India with the help of WHO during 2005-2010 revealed the prevalence of blindness in Tamilnadu at 1.44% Government efforts in control of blindness are supplemented by voluntary organizations, Non-government organizations. In Tamilnadu the NGOs are playing vital role in control of blindness. They are actively involved in education activities preventive measures rehabilitation programmes as well surgical services in the community for control of blindness in Tamilnadu. Blindness is the most significant economic and social burden on the affected individual and society, it is therefore very essential to priorities setting up of infrastructure not only in urban centers also semi urban/rural based.

People with visual problems at villages, just not interested to take any preventive measures for preventing the progress of the eye diseases or to prevent occurrence of it. This is mainly due to various reasons such as;

Reasons Percentage:

  1. Not aware of disease 37.1

  2. Nearby Facility for treatment is Not available within 30kms 1.0

  3. Does not care for treatment 56.7

  4. Superstitious 1.3

  5. Family cannot afford 3.9

b) Thalassemia and Sickle Cell Prevention Programmes. (Need For Intervention)

Thalassemia major is one of the disease which is include and has no medicine available for This disease is genetically driven for children from their parents, if both of them are Thalassemia Minor. Thalassemia Major children hardly lives for 10 to 15 years and they require frequent blood transfusion. Since there is no medicine or treatment available to save the affected persons, it is found very significant to prevent from inheriting this from their parents by avoiding marriages between two Thalassemia minors. Thalassemia can be prevented by pre-marital blood tests ans awareness programmes. We are organizing both blood test and awareness camps at free of cost. Each test cost us around Rs. 350.00 plus staff salary, cost of Documentation and use of our existing infrastructure. Department of education government of Tamilnadu has made this test compulsory for all schools and colleges in Tamilnadu. Despite of the financial constrains, our performance graphs in the past have been always high. Thalassemia is life threatening disorder like cancer, aids, and hepatitis but it lacks social awareness, which leads to a further increase in its spread. An estimated 250 million people in the world suffer from Thalassemia. One major difference is that it is preventable by an inexpensive test. The test costs only Rs. 320.00 per person ans results in saving Rs.30,000, of treatment cost annually in india alone. We are working for a “Thalassemia Free World” for this; we have started a model project in Tamilnadu. While Thalassemia affects up to 4-5% of the people. 40 million Indian suffer from Thalassemia and 10000 new case are added every year. There are two types of Thalassemia; Minor and major. Thalassemia Minor is a carrier state and the people affected lead a perfectly normal and healthy life. It is not s disease. Yet Thalassemia major is fatal, afflicting children of parents who are both hemoglobin, leading to a gradual failure of orguns. In the absence of treatment the child dies within 1 to 8 years of age. Treatment comprise of monthly or bi-monthly blood transfusions. This has to be coupled with the injection of iron chelating of iron chelating drug for 8 hours at a stretch, minimum 5 nightcap week. In spite of all efforts, it is not a permanent cure and child does not survive beyond the age of 20. It is equivalent to fighting a lost battle. Besides that financial burden, the diseases takes a heavy psychological toll on the family, despite of the staggering treatment cost; the child’s life cnnot be extended beyond a few years.

c) Need for Medical Mobile Vans and conducting other proposed medical Camps:

In a country like ours, the substantial size of the population coupled with slow paced economic growth has worsened the health of the average Indian. For creating an accommodative and reciprocative health care structure, the government needs to allocate 6% of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP), towards health services, whereas we have been consistency allocating under 3% of the GD pint he budget. Thus there is a huge gap between the need and what exists on ground. New Life Trust supplements and tried to fill in the gap through the mobile Medicare units with the objective of alleviating hardship and suffering of the disadvantaged rural population and their families living in rural and urban area. Access to basic health service to all the people of the project of the mentioned district irrespective of their cast, religion or creed is the basic Moto of this project, which is expected to provide health services at the door step of the people, which would be a boon to he bed ridden, people with restricted mobility, poor and socio economically backward persons, and millions of rural poor women and children including pregnant ladies and elderly population.


We need 1000 cr. as a corpus fund. We want to treat each and every poor patient totally free of cost. i.e. those who are living under below poverty level ( Rs. 7,000/- year income ). If we deposit Rs. 100 cr. As a fixed deposit @ 8% Interest, we will get Rs. 80,00,000/- month. We will use this towards free treatment. An analysis of the beneficiaries during last 12 years from our Trust Hospital revealed that 895 patients were the tribal people. While 11% beneficiaries were of general category. Out of 100% patients of all categories, 63% patients were having less than Rs. 7,000/- income per annum per family and therefore they have obtained all facilities free of charges and other patients have been provide the facilities at a very low and affordable rate.
