Welcome To
Servetogether Foundation

STF is a National Voluntary organization(Registered under Section 8 of Companies Act) which was established with the goal to work towards improvement of health of children. STF feels that among all age groups children are the most vulnerable, they need special care, and they are the ones who most deserve the society’s attention. There are several birth deformities found in children which can be treated at an early stage, which can otherwise result into lifetime disabilities or serious defects.

The idea of Servetogether Foundation(STF) was conceived in 2012, when the Founder while availing treatment(which was quite expensive) for one of his family member was exempted from paying 50% of the treatment fee just because he happened to to work in an NGO. It was this day that the idea of STF emerged. The organization however came into existence as an entity in the year 2020.

There are numerous health schemes being implemented by the State and Union Govt. of India. STF’s work also focusses on generating awareness in the community about the affordable services which they can avail. Among STF’s target groups are children of those families who are for some reason not covered by any govt. scheme or who cannot afford health services for their children. STF takes into special consideration children of marginalized and vulnerable communities, migrant families etc.

STF focus is also to partner with likeminded CSOs to improve the health condition of children and also build capacity of the existing Public Health Care system where majority of the population depend upon for health services 80G, 12A & CSR1 available.

Message From The Director

Gopi Busanatham

Founder Director, Servetogether Foundation

“Every child in the world is entitled to the love, care and protection that a family can provide. However, children will not be free from exploitation until all levels of society, from the immediate family to the international community, work together. Children do not choose the circumstances into which they are born and those of us who are blessed to be born into privileged lives have an obligation to redress this imbalance. It is our role to provide a bridge between those who can help and those who need our help the most”. Addressing the struggles and challenges faced by the thousands of Clubfoot children in India may seem overwhelming to many of us. By raising the awareness about the hardships faced by the children, Servetogether Foundation wishes to give Freedom from Clubfoot deformity and stretch hands to need based support for other birth defects, education wherever it is required

STF is a National Voluntary organization (Registered under Section 8 of Companies Act 2013) which was established with the goal to work towards the improvement of the health of children. STF feels that among all age groups children are the most vulnerable, they need special care, and they are the ones who most deserve the society’s attention. There are several birth deformities found in children which can be treated at an early stage, which can otherwise result to lifetime disabilities or serious defects. Baby Harshika’s new beginning of walking was achieved with a great fight against poverty, lack of right information of the solution, social stigma and so on but there are many out there around us walking with clubfoot disability. They are born with clubfoot but they are not born to live a disabled life. They will be as normal as we are if they get the right treatment at an affordable price.

I would like to specially mention the name of Sri. Chandran,(Founder ,Chairman of Essae Foundation), who has believed in me and has been my guide in the journey of making Servetogether Foundation a reality. I hope that the seed he has sown in the organization will bear much fruits in the days and years to come.

My heartfelt thanks to our amazing Doctors, Donors and Parents of Clubfoot children. We are proud to say that, through Servetogether we are able to help a clubfoot child walk and make them disable free from Clubfoot Deformity. We have enabled 150 children who were born with clubfoot to walk normally. We have been able to reach 150 families with our services and their joy is restored. We had the greatest privilege to empathise with many parents and have been part of their emotional journey from worry to joy. We hope that in the days and years to come we can reach out to more and more clubfoot children in India and save them from being disabled.

And 100+ patients received Need based support in IGICH (Ortho & Diabetic Patients). I thank Dr Dilip Surana,CMD of Micro Labs Limited for his generous support.

This is possible if we all come together with the Vision to help a child walk. Join us in making freedom from clubfoot a reality. We together can make “Reaching the unreached” possible.

With Love,
Gopi Busanatham
