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 give life a chance.

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. The founders 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, 17 surgeries later she is happy and well with her new family – Sheela got married and has two healthy boys. They live together, in Ontario, Oregon in the US. It is success stories such as this which have always stayed close to Prema & Jyoti’s hearts.

Ravi's Story

Ravi’s (name changed) birth father, a tea stall owner in a drunken stupor threw him into a dry well. Only seven, he broke and 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 Shriner’s Hospital for Crippled Children in the US - where he underwent multiple surgeries and physiotherapy. He found a happy ending with an American family who adopted him and welcomed him with open arms. He went to school, and even learnt how to swim. Unfortunately, we lost Ravi on October 24, 2012 but his legacy lives on in the heart of our Foundation. These two experiences paved the way for a more structured organisation in the form of Genesis Foundation.

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.
