They say the sound of music can bring back life. We agree!
On World Prematurity Day, Phoenix sponsored a musical fund-raiser event organized by Dr. Mehta Hospital to raise awareness about prematurity.
The music programme was held in Chennai, at Sir Mutha Venkatasubba Rao Concert Hall, on 18 November 2017. The hall buzzed with children and their parents, who smiled broad for photographs in our photo booth. It was overwhelming to see preemies who recovered in Phoenix equipment all grown up now and full of life, with sky-high dreams to achieve. Doctors and Nurses who’ve dedicated their lives to saving these tiny fighters graced the event and generously bought tickets for the noble cause
The Dr. Shanmuga Sundaram Newborn Fund for the Newborn—By the Newborn is named after a doctor dear to Phoenix. Children graduating from the NICU of Mehta will donate money every year on their birthday to the fund. The fund will help preemies and parents who face financial difficulty for treatment. The fund was released on stage during the event by Dr.Shanmuga Sundaram , Mr.Sashi Kumar ,Managing Director of Phoenix and Dr. Dilip Mehta
All lives have equal value. A life lost would have grown to become the next Abdul Kalam or Indira Gandhi. Phoenix is happy to have donated to this fund which will be useful in saving the next gem of our nation.
