Our society is in a radical need for leaders and forerunners who are committed towards making a positive change. India has seen tremendous progress over the years in all aspects. Despite being crowned with the title of one of the ‘superpowers’ of the world, it still is one of the countries with the maximum income disparity and gender discrimination in the world. The reasons for this state of India are aplenty; however, any problem can only be solved if we decide to do something about it. Not everyone feels the pain of the lesser fortunate and understands their struggle on a daily basis. Even though many of us surely empathize with the plight of the underprivileged, when it comes to taking concrete steps towards their aid there is not much that we actually do. But two of the top medicos in India, decided not turn a blind eye to the plight of those who have lesser blessings than us and established The Debabrata- Auro Foundation in the year 2016.
Dr. Debraj Shome is one of the founders of The Debabrata-Auro Foundation and he is one of the best doctors of India who is well renowned in the field of plastic surgery. Dr. Debraj Shome’s name itself is enough for validating the credibility and best intentions of this NGO in Mumbai. Dr. Debraj Shome has made his mark in the field of plastic surgery and medicine and is well- acquainted with the predicament of the underprivileged women and children in India. For a very long time now, in addition to practicing medicine, he has been involved in various charitable initiatives. But to go that extra mile for supporting the women and children of our society, he along with Dr. Aparna Govil Bhasker established this NGO in Mumbai.
Dr. Aparna Govil Bhasker is also one of the top bariatric and laparoscopic GI surgeons in Mumbai, India who is known for dealing with some of the most high profile surgery cases in Mumbai. She is an eminent surgeon at the Saifee hospital in Mumbai with years of surgical experience in her profile. Along with Dr. Debraj Shome, she established The Debabrata-Auro Foundation and both the doctors are actively involved at every step and in every program which is conducted by the NGO. Being a woman, she understands the pain and struggle a female has to face in India for even the basic rights. She transformed her tremendous passion and empathy for women into conceptualizing this charitable trust along with Dr. Debraj Shome.
As the founders of the NGO are immensely qualified professionals, multiple facets of the operations are very well handled in this NGO in Mumbai. The funding process of this charitable trust is very straightforward and is open to involvement from the volunteers from all over India. The founders have increased the stature of the charity solely by the quality of the charity work they have been doing in association with their team of volunteers.
Dr. Debraj Shome and Dr. Aparna Govil Bhasker are both fuelled by a common mission of establishing equality within the society and enable and empower the deprived sections. The prolific nature of their top professional backgrounds enables them to envision the future of the organization holistically which involves understanding of human nature as well as the logistics of running a charitable organization in the best manner possible.
The Debabrata-Auro Foundation is a mission-oriented organization which is growing in terms of funding and people who now are associated with the organization. The mutual trust in the entire team ensures that all the charity works are executed properly in practice and not just in theory. Our charity is one of the top charitable agencies which are based in Mumbai and through various workshops and funding drives, we try to do the best we can to help all those who are in need.
