The Need

Each year, an estimated 7 lakh burn patients are hospitalized and 1.2 lakh succumb to their burns. However, there are only 32 burn units across the country, and about 40 burn surgeons in 

 

India. Not only do the burn units have inadequate facilities, the concept of burn treatment and care does not factor a comprehensive circle of care and socio-economic rehabilitation. This is essential given the acute emotional trauma the burn victim undergoes in addition to the prolonged and intense physical pain.

 

The cost of treatment can run upto Rs 4,00,000 per person. If the burn disable limit them physically, the agony of the burns cripple them emotionally. In India, the need for psycho-socio care for burn victim is relatively non-existent.

 

In this context, affording burn treatment is completely beyond the means of families living around the poverty line. Empathizing with the trauma of the helpless burn victims, Agni Raksha is dedicated to provide service in every way possible to them and their families. It goes beyond providing critical medical treatment by motivating the burn victim to rebuild her or his life with dignity, courage and empowerment.
