Welcome to Health and Care Foundation
It was agony to see handicapped children dragging themselves on their buttocks or walking like quadruped animals, rather doggishly without any hope for better life. Few friends thought, “Can we make these children walk on their two legs?” The answer was “YES’ and this led to the birth of Polio Foundation in Ahmedabad in 1987. The idea took a concrete shape when Specialist doctors, Donors and Social Workers came together and Polio Foundation started pulsating in1987. The mission to give ‘A Ray of Hope’ by giving meaning to their lives has begun. Now Polio Foundation to be known as Health & Care Foundation.
