Maqbool is the only child of Zainabbi, a widow, who works as a domestic help. She never in her dreams had thought that her only child would be inflicted by a deadly disease like renal failure.

Maqbool started gradually losing his vision while he was in class VI, after which he discontinued his education. He is now completely blind. He suffers from Stage V Chronic Renal Failure. The cost per dialysis is Rs. 1400/- at Apex kidney Care Pvt. Ltd and the support provided is Rs 500 per session and 8 sessions are required per month.

MESCO supports Maqbool with regular maintenance hemodialysis. While Maqbool may never be fully healthy, the support that he gets gives him the healthcare that he deserves.

Program Description

MESCO provides aid to patients suffering from kidney disease in the form of dialysis. MESCO does not recommend or enroll patients in any specific clinic or hospital for treatment but instead asks patients to continue treatment in the dialysis center where they have been taking treatment.

MESCO provides six months continuous treatment to each patient selected. The money is paid directly to the dialysis center in advance, at the beginning of every quarter. Each year in June and December, we invite the patients on a particular date and time and issue token numbers to them. If the number of patients attending the programme is found to be in excess of budgeted numbers, then we draw a lottery in their presence and issue the Application Forms to those selected. Patients are advised to submit the forms within a stipulated time with requisite documents.

Field officers visit their homes to verify the details and subsequently applications are selected or rejected by a Committee authorized to do so. Selected patients are supported for a period of six months following the month of application.

MESCO Modern Educational Social & Cultural Organization

Modern Educational Social & Cultural Organization (MESCO) was initiated by a group of students who started distributing notebooks to the poor students. Their major source of funds was from the collection of old newspapers donated by the well-wishers. Gradually they expanded their activities to providing uniforms and other requirements to the deserving students.

As the funds increased, cases requiring medical assistance and relief were also included as additional activities. Now with a workforce of 70, the members of the organization have provided educational aid and scholarships to 3,455 students, food support to 367 families living in slum areas, medicines, cost of diagnostic tests, major and minor surgeries and support for dialysis to 240 patients and sewing machines to 115 women to supplement their income.

With a vision to help the underprivileged and marginalized to live a better tomorrow through various interventions, the members of the organization have striven to improve the quality of life of the financially disadvantaged by promoting meaningful education and health.
