Making quality health care affordable and accessible has been the objective of the Trust ever since its inception. The Trust has initiated several activities that benefit the rural and urban poor. Apart from organizing health camps and health awareness programmes, the Trust also distributes medicines to economically weaker sections of the society.
The Trust organizes anemia awareness programmes and general health check up, especially for women.
Medical camps especially for people in rural areas are organized by the Trust. Specialists from recognized hospitals carry out various diagnostic tests free of cost. Medicines are also distributed free.
Prakash Charitable Trust seeks to address the needs of societies most neglected. The problems are colossal. The Trust is lighting a candle instead of cursing the darkness. Its contribution to reduce these problems may amount to a drop in the ocean today. All the same, the ocean is richer by a drop.
While a lot is spoken of equal rights for women in India, the situational reality of the status of women in India, particularly in rural areas, is pathetic.
Gender disparity manifests itself in various forms, the most obvious being the trend of continuously declining female population rates in the last few decades. The underlying causes of gender inequality are related to social and economic factors. Consequently, the access for women, particularly those in the rural areas, to education and health care among others is inadequate.
Prakash Charitable Trust aims at a holistic approach to the development of women to enable them to realize their full potential and establish a dignified status for themselves in the society.
Food and clothing are the basic necessities of life. While food is required to maintain life, clothing is required to maintain one’s dignity in society. As we are aware, all are not blessed fully with the resources to meet these basic necessities and especially those who are below the poverty line. They have to literally struggle everyday to make both ends meet. In some cases, they are forced to resort to such acts which earn them the label of anti-social elements. Recognizing the need to support such people who are unable to earn their living, Prakash Charitable Trust has been regularly providing food and clothing to hutment dwellers, Adivasi residents, rural area residents, street children, beggars, etc.
