RC Madras Chennapatna, RID 3232, , has been facilitating treatment of congenital heart diseases in children from underprivileged families for over two decades now at the MMM Hospital in Chennai. This has benefitted nearly 200 children so far.  Every year seven children are identified and provided free surgery. The project is supported by RC Tebrau, Malaysia, who have created a corpus for the surgeries.

Sixteen-month-old Pragadeeswaran was the fourth child to be operated this Rotary year in May.
