At THCF, transparency to our generous donors is of utmost importance.
For every donation, we respond with an Use-of-Funds (UOF) Statement. This is a detailed account of every rupee spent as well as all the details about the beneficiary: from the date of birth of the child and family background to the diagnosis and even names of the doctors and hospitals involved.
To ensure that every donation makes the most impact, THCF has also negotiated special rates with medical institutions, laboratories, and pharmaceutical distributors. Be it diagnostic investigations, imaging procedures, surgery, radiation or even medicines and central venous devices, we receive subsidised rates making the most of your donation. All payments are made directly to hospitals, laboratories, or suppliers on receipt of invoices. THCF does not pay professional fees and room charges.
We have ensured that we use 100% of all donations to help our paediatric Haemophilia and Cancer patients. Our operating costs are kept strictly separate, funded by a separate group of donors.
How we select our beneficiaries
Over the years, THCF has established strong ties with several hospitals to provide support for children suffering from Haemophilia and Cancer. All beneficiaries are children, under 18 years of age, from low socio-economic backgrounds. At the hospitals, doctors assess the financial situation of the family during consults and counselling. If the family is unable to afford treatment, the doctors recommend the case to THCF.
THCF works closely with the social workers in the hospitals to determine the family’s financial situation and the extent of support needed. To really make a difference, we only support those who cannot afford or access treatment. THCF does not collect or use information related to religion or caste to determine the level of support.
THCF also has the guidance of an experienced Medical Advisory Board, who vet direct requests for support from hospitals. After confirming the authenticity of these requests, THCF also follows up with frequent hospital visits to verify that funds are being transparently used.
