It was agony to see handicapped children dragging themselves on their buttocks or walking like quadruped animals, rather doggishly without any hope for better life. Few friends thought, “Can we make these children walk on their two legs?” The answer was “YES’ and this led to the birth of Polio Foundation in Ahmedabad in 1987. The idea took a concrete shape when Specialist doctors, Donors and Social Workers came together and Polio Foundation started pulsating in1987. The mission to give ‘A Ray of Hope’ by giving meaning to their lives has begun. Now Polio Foundation to be known as Health & Care Foundation. We are expanding in many different areas of health like Diabetes which has become a prime health issue in India.

Doctors and Volunteers pursuing same level of thinking had a common thought. Can’t we make those kids walk who are suffering from polio and are unable to walk and give them a life full of honor and pride7
In context of this thought process, we started treatment through corrective surgeries for polio affected children formally in 1984-85 and gradually it came our practice on evenSunday. Initially, we were working in limited space for 7 gears. During that period few generous people gathered and Polio Foundation was established in 1987. In few years, looking at our transparency and good work, in 1992-93 Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation provided us a building for hospital as public – private partnership in Raipur area. Thus, by increasing our work sphere, we were able to grow from local level to national level and organize screening camps to provide operation and treatment to more kids.
Gradually the number of people suffering from polio started decreasing due to pro-active Dl o immunization program started by Government since 1996. We found that 30K of the kids attending the polio camps are suffering from Cerebral Palsy and basically there were no concerted effort to treat these children. Hence in year 2000, We started our first unit of Cerebral Palsy with modern equipment and experts working with social cause.
We diversified our activities, e.g. pediatric orthopedic surgeries and found satisfaction as
work increased. As the volume of work increased, our hospital in Raipur was not in a position to cope up; during this period, plot of land measuring 5500sq. yd. in Jivraj park area was allotted to us by Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority. Over there we constructed our 80,0D0 sq ft new modern hospital building and started many activities. Detailed Information on the activities are provided in this brochure.
We are lucky to have Doctors of International level working with us. Eminent persons do visit our hospital time to time which encourages us. Many times we are blessed by many spiritual saints.
