Our History

Helplife is a creation of the charitable minded family of doctors, who were invariably involved in teaching medical students and hosting free camps for the underprivileged during their leisure times. This went on for five years when a lawyer friend guided the family to work in a more organized manner and helped in the registration of the trust.

It is then on 2nd of June 1999 the Helplife trust came to its existence. The trust Helplife is chaired by Dr. Neelam Bhardwaj who is also the founder trustee of the organization. She is a public health specialist recipient of National and International awards in the use of innovations for promoting appropriate technology in Reproductive Health of women in the remote and difficult areas.

Helplife was providing services to poor women of 12 villages in Khed-Shivapur, taluka Haveli, in Pune India, when it was realized that the adolescent girls were most neglected and 50% of then suffered from Anemia, more neglect was seen in the girls who were physically challenged and have suffered Polio in their childhood.

In 2006 Helplife started an internship program for physically challenged adolescent girls and continues to serve the needs of the children with disability.
Helplife has been associated with the doctors who are academicians and researchers and have made immense contributions in the field of Public Health. Helplife aims to work through Partnerships and coordinates for the reasons of service delivery to the marginalized and poor.
