I can't get my medicine, how can the society help me?

You can easily visit our front desk to know what are the required documents needed to know how can we help you?
Mostly, we need an updated report from your treating doctor detailing your medical condition and the treatment recommendations offered by him. Also, we need a recent bank statement and an employment letter with detailed salary.
You may be requested to provide other documents accordingly.

Will the society cover 100% of my medications?

Based on your own income, the society will study your situation and discuss with you how much support the society will offer. If you deserve full support, the society will be more than happy to do so, else the society will share with a part.
