A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle; celebrate Diwali of 2017 as a festival of kindness.

This Diwali lift a hand & light a heart. Join us to bring smiles to the kids admitted in the Hospitals.


 Diwali-Uday-Foundation.jpg Every year Uday Foundation celebrate Diwali, the festival of light by touching the lives of the little children in hospitals in a meaningful way. While you are busy celebrating Diwali with sweets and lights, remember that festivals are about spreading joy around and you can always make some contribution towards the society according to your capabilities.

There are a number of children who spend Diwali in hospitals as they are suffering from various illnesses and who may not have anything to look forward to this Diwali. However, you can bring a difference to their life. Sometimes, all it takes is a little love and care so when you are busy in exchanging gifts with near and dear ones, just give a thought to bring little happiness to these kids. Uday Foundation help underprivileged patients who are currently undergoing various medical treatments in government hospitals. This group comprises people of various ages, health conditions and cultures.

Diwali is a excellent time to start thinking about helping other people. This includes providing food, clothing and toys for families to enable them to experience the joy of the Diwali Festival. Giving warmth, love and hope. That’s what Diwali should be all about.

Philanthropy literally means the love of mankind, and Diwali is the right time for it.
