Collaborative Healthcare Foundation (CHF) today announced the completion of upgrades to the Karadimadai Primary Healthcare Centre in Thenkarai Taluk, Coimbatore District.
The upgrades were made possible through generous contributions from CHF, RPP Constructions, and the Rotary Club of Coimbatore Texcity.
New construction included a 20 ft x 30ft covered multipurpose area and a biowaste room. CHF also donated wheelchairs, surgical lamps, water heaters, and other essential equipment. Dr.P. Aruna, Deputy Director of Health Services opened the newly built multipurpose covered area, and raffle prizes were distributed to the public.
CHF was founded by Siddarth Kasi in Orlando, Florida, USA, in 2020. CHF is a registered 501(C) (3) non-profit and tax-exempt organization. Initial projects were started in the Coimbatore, Nilgiris, and Erode districts of Tamil Nadu and later expanded to other Indian states. Now programs have expanded to other countries such as Ethiopia, South Africa, Jamaica, and Guyana.
The foundation’s goal is to promote government health programs and enhance the utilization of existing PHC infrastructure in selected rural areas. This is achieved by promoting the involvement of society through the participation of village and community leaders, corporate houses, local colleges and universities, and NGO organizations in development activities with government authorities, including the PHC doctor, District Health Officer, and the District Collector.
