The Sassoon General Hospitals (S.G.H.) is a vast teaching hospital providing medical care to individuals in Pune District in the state of Maharashtra. Patients from all walks of life, especially those living Below the Poverty Line (BPL) from the city of Pune and adjacent rural areas, come to seek treatment at this medical centre, which was established more than a century ago by the philanthropist David Sassoon.

How It Works

• With a large number of beds and an equally large clientele of out-patients, the hospital caters to those suffering from Diabetes, Tuberculosis, Cancer, Burns, Orthopaedic problems and children in need of Paediatric care.
• Through this initiative SOFOSH provides counselling as well as economical support to these patients.
• Along with medical support, many times SOFOSH also provides nutrition, counselling, and financial support to families through educational sponsorship for their children.
• Hence, the average support given to a patient is being collected via this donation.
• It goes into a fund and is used as per the needs of individual patients.
• SOFOSH sometimes supports the patient even after the treatment is over.

Patient welfare services were started since SOFOSH inception which caters to the needs of patients of the Sassoon General Hospitals suffering from diabetes, Tuberculosis, Cancer, Burns, Orthopedic problems and Pediatric care. Through this initiative SOFOSH provides counseling as well as economical support to these patients. Support for medicines to patients is the activity taken from the day one at SOFOSH. SOFOSH counselor worked closely with Shobha to give her emotional and financial support for medicines. They also helped her to give truthful dying statement which is normally compromised version due to the in-laws pressure. Counseling was done for her husband so that after treatment he and his family agreed to take her home. SOFOSH helped her to identify residential school for her daughters.
Home visits and follow up with the family and Shobha helped her to gain respect in family. Both daughters are in residential school and Shobha is relocated to her native village with her husband.

She also started working in the village and is now independent enough to take care of herself and support her daughters.
