ABOUT US

Lupus Trust India

A public charitable trust, established to support patients who are financially backward and fall under the below poverty line category, the trust will facilitate their treatment and rehabilitation. The trust will also strive hard to render psychological, social and emotional support to the affected.

KEY FOCUS

 

TREATMENT & AWARENESS

Every Lupus Patient will get the right treatment and best of medicines. There will be a drastic reduction in the number of Lupus patients dropping out of the treatment by bringing “Awareness” of the severity of this chronic illness. The number of cases of late diagnosis will come down drastically.

FINANCIAL AID

Due to frequent need for leaves and difficulties in working at a stretch, work efficiency and productivity might come down. In such situations, what one needs is empathetic thoughts from work authority and peer groups, resting space/sick rooms and work from home facilities.

EMPLOYMENT & INCOME

Every Lupus Patient undergoes a financial beating during and post diagnosis. The Trust will strive hard to “Financially” serve the deserving in every way possible.

POLICY MAKER

The most prioritised activity of the trust would be bringing Lupus to the notice of authorities, policy makers to further avail benefits for eligible patients and their dependents. The Trust will associate and work hand in hand with govt and service groups.

SOCIAL EMPATHY

As most people with lupus are diagnosed between the tender age of 15 -35 , this is the crucial period in one’s life with every aspect, couple of years break in studies and in career can also cause huge stress and depression.

MENTAL & EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

Lupus Trust will function as a platform to bring together Lupus patients and their families. Thus serving humanity with Mental and Emotional Support.

GIVE A GIFT

We focus on “one to one” or “one to few” type interactions. We do not address societal problems. We don’t tackle projects requiring engineers and scientists. We’ll leave that.
