The Foundation and CMC have once again been selected by USAID as an American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA) grant recipient, a federally funded program that supports infrastructure and capital improvement initiatives. The FY2020 ASHA Grant will support the use of robotics and Artificial Intelligence to help improve physical rehabilitation for people with disabilities.
After nearly sixty years, CMC has academically realigned its Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Institute with the internally acclaimed Rusk Rehabilitation Institute of New York City. A relationship that was launched on September 1st brings back memories of the days when Dr. Mary Verghese, who worked under the tutelage of Dr. Howard Rusk in New York for 18 months, returned to Vellore to introduce rehabilitative medicine to India for the first time.
On July 1st, 2021, CMC re-opened the night schools and launched a new comprehensive developmental program for children and adolescents in the Jawadhi Hills through the support of a generous alumna.
In response to the deadly second wave of COVID-19 in India, the Foundation has raised $1.41 million through a concerted effort with CMC, as well as through the efforts and effectiveness of our Board, alumni, faith-based community, loyal friends and more than 500 newfound donors.
Over the last couple of weeks, CMC has responded in two key domains: First, the number of patients arriving at CMC each day with fever and breathing difficulty increased substantially as the pandemic wave shifted from the North and West to the East and South.
