In the past few weeks, India’s COVID-19 crisis has taken a dramatic turn. India has reported record number of cases since the beginning of the pandemic. Deaths are on the rise. Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, YRGCARE has utilised its skills and knowledge of almost 3 decades within the clinic, lab and community to meet with the increasing needs of a new pandemic - testing and clinical care, PPE and other protective provisions, awareness and preventive measures to reduce the impact on households and communities, food deliveries, nutritional hampers, etc.
During this hour, we should make sense of the current situation and uncover the actions that we can take to slow the spread and expedite services.
We require your support to help us meet with these and more emerging needs.

Globally, it is estimated that there are approximately 135 million people living with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) – every year nearly 500,000 people die from HCV- related complications.
HIV as a cause of death in many countries including the United States where in 2014, HCV caused more deaths than HIV, Hepatitis B and tuberculosis combined.
In Chennai, the general population prevalence of HCV is estimated to be approximately 1%; With a population of nearly 8 million persons, this translates to nearly 80,000 persons living with HCV in Chennai.
We launched the Hepatitis C Free Chennai Campaign on July 28, 2016. The campaign includes a comprehensive strategy to improve awareness of hepatitis C across all communities in Chennai, reduce stigma associated with diagnosis, universal screening with access to confidential testing for all, prompt linkage to HCV care and curative treatment alongside counseling to reduce the risk of reinfection in high risk populations.Read more
The Suniti Solomon Educational Fund's mission is to identify talented young women who have the scholastic credentials and show professional promise, but lack the money that is required for a medical education.
Every year approximately around the month of June, we will provide the necessary funds to the candidates who have been selected to enable their education for that academic year. Thereafter, donations received by us will accumulate in the separate account that we have set up for this specific purpose until next June, when the funds would again be applied towards the medical students for the next academic year.Read more
