Chairman’s Message
Hope Foundation
Hope Foundation
The Hope Foundation and Research Centre is a Public Charitable Trust established by Mr. P. P. Chhabria in 1979 (The Year of the Child). The Foundation is largely funded by the Finolex Group and pursues its charitable objectives in the twin fields of medicine and education.

Kalpana Mammography Centre, Pune

The Hope Foundation was a pioneer in the establishment of a well equipped Kalpana Mammography Centre in Pune for early detection of breast cancer. The Centre was inaugurated in August 1993 by Smt. Pratibhatai Pawar, wife of the then Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri Sharadrao Pawar. The Centre is effectively working with its team of Radiographers under the guidance of a panel of eminent Radiologists and has done more than 8000 mammography’s so far.
It provides free medicines including life-saving drugs and treatment such as chemotherapy to the economically backward members of the society mainly to fight the scourge of cancer and related diseases. The Foundation also provides financial assistance to enable treatment of cancer. The Foundation continues to distribute costly life-saving drugs for the poor cancer patients irrespective of their caste, creed or social status on the recommendation of recognised medical/surgical specialists without any motive for profit. Services are provided free of charge to the poor and with concession to those who can afford to pay.

AIDS Project

Now the Foundation is assisting University of South Florida, USA and Ruby Hall Clinic, Pune, in a project to build local capacity and make Indian Medical Scientists self-sufficient to conduct activities independently through training and research. The goal of this project is to continue and strengthen medical, public health, biomedical and behavioral training programs to further Infectious diseases and HIV/AIDS research and prevention in India.
