Our stakeholders have been actively taking part in recommending/selecting patients for medical treatment. Here is an overview of their involvement:
Till date over 1 lakh 54 thousand patients have availed medical assistance from Melam Foundation. Patients come from nook and corner of Kerala and its neighbouring States for financial aid.
The patients who require financial assistance have to mandatorily get their application form attested from MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) and MP (Member of Parliament) of their respective constituency. Till date, 138 out of 140 MLAs and 45 MPs have participated in this process.
