There are thousands of poor and needy children in Maharashtra, especially in rural areas, who are in dire need of immediate medical attention. Due to being economically backward, the families cannot afford expensive treatment. In order to save the life of these children, Maharashtra Chief Ministers Relief Fund has signed an MOU with the Rotary Club International.
While speaking at the function, Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis said, “Mission Muskan is an ambitious project. Through this we are focusing on the treatment of the children who are suffering from life- threatening ailments and are battling for their life. The Rotary Club has always been supportive of us. Mission Muskan has assured that no child will be left without treatment in Maharashtra.”
Fadnavis further said, “When we look at the smile on the face of the parents, after their child is saved, the smile is worth millions. I am sure that Mission Muskan will bring a smile on their faces. Our mission is to reach the grass-root levels and all corners of the state.”
Till now, 15 lakh of poor and needy patients have been given financial aid under the Chief Ministers Medical Relief Fund. In the past 3 to 4 years, around 350 crore rupees have been disbursed to the poor and needy.
