The society’s activities started in 04/ 09/ 2006 when the managerial board started addressing various disease cases. A specialized medical committee comprising three doctors was set up to help the managerial board in sorting out and classification of disease cases that need the society’s care for various areas. The society received thousands of disease cases which were studied by the medical committee and approved to take care of the cases coverd by the rules and regulations set by the managerial board. The number of beneficiaries during the last five years was as follows:
