Health Programs

Vision for the Health Initiative

To have gainful impact and improve our effectiveness, it is essential for us to use a community based approach and build a sustainable model for health education.

Under our programs we work towards addressing high priority issues and provide quality service to the people. We are always seeking new partnerships to expand the program to provide health education and assistance to underprivileged children and families.

In the past we have worked in partnership to share health education information with students attending government schools in the City of Chandigarh, focusing on awareness, prevention and wellness. As well as integrate preventive eye health care into our program for the visually impaired as a campaign to end avoidable blindness in India.

The foundation took the health initiative forward by developing it into a prevention and wellness program that continues to share knowledge and provide awareness on urban health issues to children, youth and families living in poverty.

Health Campaign 2012

Nov 21, 2012

We live in a world of inequality. Not all of us have the same opportunities or the same quality of life. That is why our duty as people and citizens is to help those who don’t have this chance. In this process, I have discovered that what we give to others does not compare with the gratification received in return, which is a lot more. I am are here to help but I also strongly believe that there is much more I have learnt and discovered through this process that has made me grow and become a better person. Our ideas, our efforts and our determination is enough to make a change not only in our society but also in our selves. Dr. Amrik S. Cheema Foundation Trust has opened the door to such an opportunity and helped me strengthen my commitment to help people in need.
