Welcome to R G Kar Medical College Appeal Fund

RG Kar Appeal Fund is a charitable organisation established in 1995 by a small group of ex RG Kar-ites based in UK. This group proposes to assist current medical and nursing students in Kolkata and improve educational standards by informing, health promotion, assisting research activity and providing scholarship to meritorious but needy students.

About Us

We are a group of dedicated medics and non medics who are keen to serve our alma mater in Kolkata. We have given ourselves a constitution to help us and guide our descendants to fulfil our aims.

What We Do

We run a variety of programmes and projects to help the medical and nursing students in Kolkata. Here are a few of them:

Scholarship Programmes  : Till date 16 young and meritorious students from poor backgrounds have been supported throughout their medical career till they become financially independent.

Hepatitis B vaccination programme:  We have vaccinated 900 medical and nursing students over the years against the dreaded Hepatitis B virus. Each dose costs roughly Rs 900 which is often oustide what many of these poor students can afford.

Clean drinking water programme : M​ultiple Aquaguard  machines  have been installed around various medical and nursing colleges to give free access to clean and safe drinking water preventing infectious diseases.

Book Fund : We have donated funds and international journals to the various medical college libraries  to augment the educational standards of medical and nursing students.  ​

Diabetic Project :   We have actively taken part over the years to educate the local doctors and help them implement the current guidelines when it comes to management of Diabetes which poses a huge disease burden in the developing countries.
