Speaking about the event, Jyoti Sagar, Founder, Trustees, Genesis Foundation said, “Corporate heads love doing this. Every year we keep an eye out for CEOs who are music buffs and try to bring them on board. It is heart-warming to witness such commitment by these industry stalwarts. This event aims to create awareness of congenital heart defects and raise funds for saving little hearts through its lighthearted moments”.
Colleen Cassity, Executive Director, Oracle Corporate Citizenship, also commented saying, ““We are proud to support Genesis Foundation and their mission to save little hearts leveraging best-in-class technology. As a company, Oracle is committed to helping secure a bright future for young people across India. Over the past two years, our support has enabled Genesis Foundation to facilitate nearly 170 surgeries. Together, we hope to continue making a positive impact in coming years.”
Genesis Foundation facilitates medical treatment for critically ill under-privileged children suffering with Congenital Heart Defects. The support required in the said critical illness varies from specific surgeries (including neonatal), Cath Lab Interventions along with recovery and recuperation post-surgery.
So far, we have supported medical treatment of over 2400 critically ill children. The children supported by the Foundation belong to families with an income of less than or equal to Rs 10,000 per month and the parents are unable to afford treatment of these children who suffer from a serious life-threatening ailment.
100% of funds raised are used towards treatment of critically ill children as all overhead costs are borne by the founder trustees.
