Richard Condorelli Memorial Foundation is committed to the principle that we should help people who cannot otherwise help themselves. By making standardized healthcare available to people in developing countries, we initiate positive changes that would perhaps take several generations to occur, if at all.
The Foundation is currently involved in building a world-class healthcare, research, and training facility in Ahwa, Dang, Gujarat, India. Vanbandhu Arogya Dham (VAD), as the project is called, will benefit thousands of poor underprivileged tribal people throughout Dang district and surrounding areas of Gujarat. Honorable Prime Minister of India, Shree Narendra Modi has supported the concept of VAD, and would like to develop it as a national mandate. The VAD Project has the potential to be selected as a Model Project for implementation in other impoverished tribal areas of India, where there is a concerning lack of a well-coordinated healthcare delivery system. VAD is supported by our local organization registered in India, Kantilal J Patel Charitable Trust, a non-profit entity, with registration number E 2455.
