The HOPE programme identifies children who are in need of urgent medical care under our focus area – Heart Disorder. We work directly and closely with the families, or guardians and the doctors to ensure not only timely but the best available treatment. To view the stories of all the brave kids we have treated till date, click below.

Under the CARE programme, we seek to build a network of doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies, committed to saving the lives of critically ill, under-privileged children and work with them to provide medical support to GF beneficiaries.

Our GIVE programme focuses on various fund-raising initiatives. It is a uniquely designed programme aimed at building a community that whole-heartedly believes in our cause and are committed in spreading awareness through collaboration and participation.
There are various platforms we have created to make this come alive – our events, CSR programmes, and through donations and crowd sourcing.

Under our LEARN programme, we continue to build a repository of valuable information across the area of health that we focus on i.e. Heart Disorder. Accumulating and sharing this information gives us the insight we need to stay current and aware.

Our Story

Our Founders

Prema and Jyoti Sagar lost a child to Heart Disorder – Samir, who was born on December 20, 1983. It took them a long time to recover, and they spent a lot of time wondering why? No answers and a vacuum of sadness. In time they began working at Missionaries of Charity. It gave them a whole new meaning to life, and this is how the journey started as they felt they could reach out and assist in the best way possible – enriching the lives of others and their own. Soon, they met two children – Sheela and Ravi – who further changed their lives and inspired them to take greater responsibility for the medical challenges that both these children were facing. Now – there is no end to this journey to save more and more little hearts.

Sheela's Story

Sheela (name changed) the daughter of a poor farmer was only 12, when she contracted a disease that left her facial features severely deteriorated. Missionaries of Charity blessed her life as they took her under their wing and cared and looked after her for over a decade. GF stepped in and contacted a non-profit organization in the US who dealt with corrective plastic surgery, that would be her saving grace as it would allow her to eat and breathe properly. Today, after more than 17 surgeries, Sheela is happily married and a mother of two healthy boys in the US.

Ravi's Story

Ravi's (name changed) father, a tea stall owner in a drunken stupor threw his son into a dry well. Only seven years old, he broke or dislocated every major bone in his body. He was taken to an orphanage and then with the help of a friend - Eugene Mihaly, GF reached out to Ravi and contacted Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children in the US where he underwent multiple surgeries along with physiotherapy. He too, found a happy ending within an American family who adopted him, and welcomed him with open arms - he has been to school and even learnt how to swim! The success of these two experiences paved the way for a more structured organization in the form of Genesis Foundation, where we strive to truly Give Life a Chance.

Our Projects

The Aara Project

It is a culmination of a pledge, Priyal and her husband Anami Bhattacharyya, took right after the birth of their daughter Aara on Feb 7th, 2016. Both of them did not get the chance to celebrate the birth of their first child as she was diagnosed with a rare heart ailment. It was this rude shock that opened their eyes towards the expansive field of “pediatric cardiology”. In their journey of three months in hospital seeing their little brave heart fight one surgery after the other, they came across several families who were not only going through similar pain but also battling financial constraints.
