Rotary Club of Muzaffarnagar Sanskrati, RID 3100, has initiated a project — child heart surgery — last year under the presidentship of Rajeev Singhal to identify children with congenital heart diseases and help them get treated at the PGICH Hospital, a government hospital in Noida. The Rotarians help parents with the paperwork to be submitted at the hospital to avail CHD surgery free of cost.
Little Shivaay from Shamli was the first beneficiary of this project. His father Dinesh Kumar was trying hard for three years to treat his child at the district hospital in Shamli. He was then directed by Sudhakar Arya, immediate past president of RC Shamli, to contact Dr Nitin Jain, the nodal officer for the child heart surgery project. Eight more children have been identified for heart surgery by the club which has called for all Rotary clubs in the district to direct children with CHD to get benefitted from this project.
