About the NGO
Rural Health Care Foundation (RHCF) is a non profit organisation based out of Kolkata. It offers primary healthcare to the underprivileged community through a chain of 15 primary health centres located in remote rural regions of West Bengal and the urban slums of Kolkata.
Against a nominal amount of Rs. 60 ($0.89) a patient receives consultation, treatment and free medicines for a week. A project started by two brothers, has now transformed to an initiative serving millions of patients per year and generating employment for many.
The organization was set up following the prolonged suffering of one of its founders with cancer, since an early age. This exposed to him and his brother, the lack of quality health care facilities in India, particularly so for the rural poor. The brothers got together with like-minded people and established RHCF which provides low cost, quality health care in rural areas based on a model that is scalable, sustainable and replicable.
Anant and Arun Nevatia wound up their booming construction business and started this initiative for the poor. He realised there is no end to money making and he decided to give back to society. Taking this vision forward the brothers started this initiative to provide health care to the poor.
RHCF centres run six days a week throughout the year. They have treated over 15 lakh patients in their 15 primary health care centres.
