Thank You! We're almost 30% there!

TB patients, like this man in Central India (who was receiving treatment and counseling through Operation ASHA), often lose their jobs or ability to work even while being treated. This man's elderly mother told us she had to go back to work in order to make up for his lost wages from the disease. This is just one of the reasons why we are so grateful for your support. Your donation helps not only to save lives, but also to help break the cycle between poverty and disease. To our current pledges, we would love if you could spread the word: share this campaign with 1 friend, colleague, or family member you think could support this life-changing work. With gratitude, The OpASHA team

Thank You!

We are so grateful for all the donors that have contributed to our CaringCrowd campaigns in 2018 and we are excited to continue expanding our impact into 2019. We hope you will continue to share this giving opportunity with others via social media and more. Every donation counts -- even $25 is enough to send a cured child of TB back to school. With gratitude, The OpASHA Team

Our goal
We envision a future without a curable, preventable disease like tuberculosis (TB).
The Challenge

Millions of people are still dying from TB, a curable disease

Tuberculosis (TB) remains the world's most lethal infectious disease killer -- leading to more deaths than HIV/AIDS and malaria combined. Not only that, but TB is a completely curable disease.  

Our Solution

Operation ASHA trains and employs technology-equipped community health workers to combat TB

Operation ASHA helps to combat this disease on all fronts, from screening and diagnosis to helping patients make sure they complete treatment. Meeting our project goal will enable us to treat and cure 25 patients of TB in the slums of Delhi.

Your Impact

$80 is all it takes to cure a disadvantaged patient of TB and change a life

Your donation will have a far-reaching impact. With just $80, a disadvantaged patient can be cured of TB. Getting a patient diagnosed, on treatment, and successfully completing treatment both helps prevent the further spread of TB as well as the development of drug-resistant TB, which is much harder to treat. Your donation will help a child go back to school, a breadwinner return to their job, and save a beloved family member's life.
