CAP’S Compliance Complete Certification – V Care Foundation

Featuring V care foundation – one of the 4 NGOs registered for this year’s CAP Compliance-Complete Certificate 

Our objectives are to help create free support, awareness and
education to cancer patients and to help improve their quality of life.
We joined CAP’s Compliance Complete Certification…To learn
best practices, to build capacity and to be as flawless an organisation as
V Care Foundation was founded with the philosophy… of helping cancer patients and their
caregivers fight cancer and stay emotionally secure.   As a team we
wanted to be so strong that we could conquer cancer. 
Our greatest forte…
is the fact that the organisation is run by volunteers who give their time and
are passionate to serve the cause.
Our strength also becomes our challenge… We need volunteers to expand our work. We are
also continuously exploring ways to identify needs of cancer patients’ and
methods of fulfilling those.
Compliance for us translates as … 
being legally compliant as an organization. Having the best accounting
practices along with sound and effective board governance.
What are your organization’s most promising programs… Cancer Survivors Day started by V Care
in 2015 was a movement to focus on survivorship. It is now being celebrated by
many organisations across the country. Providing financial support to the poor
and middle income group.  A program called UMMEED which is a unique Cancer
Helpdesk that provides information to patients and their caregivers on
different types of available government schemes, hospitals, NGOs and trust for
financial assistance and a list of budget hotels/accommodation.
How can you best reach your target audience… through our placement in hospitals,
social media, and word of mouth of the beneficiaries, our well wishers and donors. 
How has your organization changed over the last 2-5-10 years… From an organisation providing only
emotional support to patients initially we have now expanded to include many
support programs for the patients and their families.  We have a robust home
visit system in place for our palliative patients and provide financial support
to them.  We train other support groups in the country, to implementing
programs where prosthetic needs (wigs, artificial breast, etc) of the patients
are met.

Two changes which you would like to observe in the philanthropy
space…Serve the purpose by networking
amongst the social sector to reach out to maximum no of patients with our
resources.  As an organization strive for compliance at all levels.
