The KRK Foundation
The KRK Foundation was set up to make a small contribution to patients and to society at large. This foundation gets contributions from well wishers and patients which are used judiciously to help the not so affording patients. The spectrum of activity of this foundation includes subsidized investigations, medicines, consultations and procedures. The foundation also spreads awareness regarding liver disease, hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, thalassemia, anemia among others. This is done through lectures, seminars, vaccination camps, printing and distribution of patient education booklets.
