Cancer Patient Convalescent
Cancer is a devastating disease. Many remote parts of India do not have cancer diagnostic and treatment centers.
Tata Memorial Hospital and its reputation for best and involved treatment drags one and all from every corner of
India to Mumbai. Mumbai welcomes them all, but harsh realities of city soon prevails and saddens them a great deal !!
Difficult survival adds a lot to the high cost of treatment. Unable to meet the cost of staying many land on footpaths
and many leave with the treatment incomplete and embrace the eventuality in despair.
We at Bombay Mothers and children welfare society try to support them by providing clean & hygienic accommodation
at Dr. Mhaskar & Dr. Tilak hospital. Facility is open to all and existing for 35 yrs.

Dr. Madhav Sathe M.D. is an Anesthesiologist by profession.
He is working in Bombay hospital and Breach candy hospital since 1979. He has presented research papers in various conferences and won many awards. He is a social entrepreneur. He has invested his thought process in a charity and converted it in a Sustainable Social Entrepreneurship.
Social entrepreneurs are individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems. They are ambitious and persistent, tackling major social issues and offering new ideas to effect far-reaching change. Instead of leaving societal needs to the government or the business sector, social entrepreneurs take it upon themselves to identify what is not working and offer solutions to the problems by changing/altering /supporting the system. I call it WALKING THE LAST MILE WITH THE GOVERNMENT. Finding the gaps in the system is a crucial aspect of this process. The rest is like filling in the blanks. They go beyond the political borders with which the programs have been designed. Social organizations and social entrepreneurs do a great job of fulfilling society’s needs. They are charged with a tremendous urge to change the community, despite being handicapped by the fact that they cannot afford a highly educated talented resource pool with the necessary skills (due to lower paying capacity and meagre opportunities for growth).
The vision to reach the mission goals is understandably stifled. Is it in any way possible to transform an NGO into a sustainable enterprise with a little help from outside? Can we create a meaningful volunteer structure to support the organization? Can social immersion during early education towards ground realities encourage learned minds to apply their knowledge to social realities and attempt to change them? Should such intervention also be a meaningful part of higher education? Will that help broaden the vision of future leaders of the corporate sector and encourage them to participate in social activities – either by taking a sabbatical or by spending some hours a week with the staff of an NGO – to give them the direction to design, develop and execute the projects? The need of the hour is active support to social innovators, be they individual or organization. Offering them a thought process which can help to march on the difficult but wonderful path of social engineering needed to transform the community. Can thought process investment help leadership development? Leadership is the most essential intangible needed for creating sustainable organizations. Involving corporate leaders will certainly bring the metric of leadership development on the radar of social organizations
