SOFOSH, an acronym for Society of Friends of the Sassoon Hospitals was started in 1964 by a group of socially conscious people of Pune for the welfare of poor patients of Sassoon Hospitals, a large 1200 bed state run hospital. In a tiny section of this big hospital professionally trained social workers of SOFOSH tend to the problems of the sick, the needy and the lost. Few among the affluent may be aware of the existence of SOFOSH but for patients in distress it is their hope, their succor and their much needed friend.
Child care activities were intiated in 1973. In the 32 years of its existence, SOFOSH’s Child care Centre, Shreevatsa, has been home and hope to orphan childen without a family, ranging from the new born to the six year old. Today most of the children Shreevatsa cares for go into adoption. There are however other ‘special’ children who never go into adoption. A number of these children are physically and mentally challenged and a growing number are afflicted by life threatening ailments. It is for these children that SOFOSH started its Tara project that provides a place that is secure and cheerful to give them a better life. This project solely runs with the help of donations and volunteers so give a little and bring a smile to a child’s face.
