“The year 2020 has put all of us in a state of overwhelming fear. With the entry of COVID-19 and then the virus spreading like a wildfire, it was difficult for everyone, but more in the rural areas. To stop the spread the entire nation went on a lockdown. Since the lockdown brought all activities to a halt, there have been several stories of people struggling to find even a morsel of food and of migrant workers left stranded, among others.
At this time ,it was GeBBS Foundation who came forward with their fabulous plan – Project Annapurna. Through this project various food kits and groceries were distributed to the people in Aurangabad and Jalna. I was one of the volunteers who participated in this project. I must say that I am fortunate to be a part of this project. GeBBS Foundation gave me the opportunity to distribute food and other necessities to the people in the rural areas during the pandemic. I have been a witness to the smile on every face, when I along with other GeBBS Foundation volunteers distributed the food kits to the rural people in Aurangabad and Jalna. This Annapurna project was one of best activities I have ever witnessed. I wish to be a part of such noble endeavors. Thank you, GeBBS Foundation.”
Better communities blossom when people live better lives
GeBBS Foundation, a non-profit organization, promoted by the GeBBS group, actively works to improve health standards and reduce poverty for the underprivileged. The foundation established a single-minded focus: empower the underserved communities in rural India by providing access to better healthcare, better education, and better livelihoods.
Our CEO and MD, Mr. Milind Godbole, envisioned a significant environmental objective: to plant trees equal to our employee count. We are proud to have achieved this goal by planting 14,140 tree saplings in various locations near Mumbai and Aurangabad. Our underlying objective is to enhance the green cover while also nurturing fruit-bearing trees. Our focus ahead is to maintain a survival rate of 90% while planting more trees.
NADE Collaboration with GeBBS
We have collaborated with the National Association of Disabled’s Enterprises (NADE) – a national level Non-Governmental Organization.
As a part of this collaboration, we bought 1000 umbrellas which were assembled by the specially-abled people at the NADE workshop in Vikhroli, Mumbai.
Here is what the representatives at NADE have to say about the initiative by GeBBS and the impact it is likely to have.
The initiative is an attempt by us to make a positive difference to the society, one step at a time.
Joy of Giving
Joy of Giving is a program that is celebrated at GeBBS Healthcare Solutions wherein all employees across the organization contribute back to the society. By Giving, we believe we can make a difference and it has provided us with an opportunity for social commitment & engagement. This year, we expressed our gratitude by visiting 7 NGO’s & sharing our blessings with them. The finale of the Mumbai, Joy of Giving series was held at Prem Daan on Friday, December 20th 2019. The residents and Nuns of Prem Daan were excited to have us amidst them and happily interacted with all the visitors from GeBBS.
Our Choir raised the Spirit’s of all the residents as we sang popular Christmas Carols which also ensured that the residents could join us in Chorus. Our volunteers served snacks to all the residents at Prem Daan and were delighted to mingle with them. Everyone continued to Sing and Dance along with the Choir and our Guitarist.
We wrapped up the evening with Seasons Greetings and a Smile on the faces.
Ongoing Impactful Initiative
Cervical Cancer Health Checkup
Cervical cancer is often caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). With regular health screening, abnormal cells in the cervix can be detected and treated before they lead to cervical cancer. However, in rural India, women lack awareness and regular screenings to help prevent cervical cancer. Our cervical cancer screening program uses a focused cluster approach to reach affected populations. Our program serves 50 villages throughout the Aurangabad and Jalna districts of Maharashtra. We partner with governmental and local authorities, hospitals, corporations, philanthropists, local rotary clubs, lion’s club, and other NGOs involved in similar programs.
Ongoing Impactful Initiative
Dancing for Safe Haven
Nearly 40% of the homeless population in the US includes families with children. Safe Haven is the premier shelter-to-housing program for families facing homelessness in Middle Tennessee. Dancing for Safe Haven is an extremely popular charity event that has sold out in the local community for the past ten years. Through a fun-filled evening of dance, dinner, and celebrity interactions, we help Safe Haven raise funds to address family homelessness. Many enthusiastic community leaders, philanthropists, business leaders, and professionals lend their time and support year after year through Safe Haven. With GeBBS’ support at Dancing for Safe Haven, Safe Haven Family Shelter successfully helped over 300 families in 2020.
Past Impactful Initiative
Pink Pint Nights: A Breast Cancer Screening Initiative
Hosted by Charlotte Radiology and NoDa Brewing, the Pink Pint Night is a much-anticipated community event to fight against breast cancer. GeBBS Healthcare Solutions’ active involvement in this event helps raise vital funding for essential screening and diagnostic mammograms for local, uninsured women through the Levine Cancer Institute: Project Pink. This project will provide 30+ mobile screening days annually to communities that need it the most.
Founded in 2011, Levine Cancer Institute: Project Pink and Project Pink Plus provide free screenings and diagnostic mammograms to more than 1,000 local uninsured women each year.
