“With their generosity and social commitment towards those ‘not so privileged,’ Vardhman Group has also set a role model for others to emulate. I hope other corporates and philanthropists will also follow the suit and hand-hold the destitute patients, thereby, render true service to mankind,” added Prof. Jagat Ram as the Director exhorted others also to support the cause and contribute towards PGIMER’s Poor Patients Welfare Fund.
