After the massive success and support of UJ Pin Auction and Donation, the home table of UJ ART-40 was able to generate close to Rs. 25 lakhs for supporting poor and needy people who are not having funds to afford Chemotherapies from Doctors and Hospitals.
Out of the total funds generated we were able to spare very negligible amount for opening up the centre in Hospital. We are very thankful to Samarpan Hospital, Dr. Manoj Kapoor and Dr. Parul Kapoor for giving us a ward on a long term basis which can be used by us for supporting poor and needy people Chemotherapies as UJ memorial Centre.
We had organized Special UJ T-shirts and Plaques for the Inauguration Ceremony. Huge number of tablers and circlers were present in the Inauguration Ceremony. We have given Special UJ T-shirts to all the tablers, 41ners and family members of Utkarsh Jani. In fact, UJ’s father told me that he would like to inaugurate the Centre wearing UJ T-shirt which is a small token of gratitude by Round table India.
Before the inauguration we have requested Shri Bharat Jani to say a few words to all of us. He thanked Round Table India family for generating such a huge sum in the fond memory of his beloved son. He has also promised to support this cause on life long basis. The Inauguration Ceremony was also witnessed by NVP Chris. He had shown his gratitude and love for UJ and generously thanked all the donors for their support. He alos announced that the winners of the Pin Jacket will have their jacket in an AGM in Coimbatore. On behalf of ART-40, Past President Vineet Parikh had also thanked all the members present during the inauguration ceremony.
Bharat Uncle, Geeta Aunty and Shiv (Utkarsh’s Son) inaugurated the centre. We all took pictures and selfies in the ward. Special Wall of Fame was also kept to recognize the major donors who helped us in opening the centre. We had also thanked Tr Jwalant and Tr Saurabh for renovating the centre in just one month’s time.
We look forward to serve many poor and needy patients under this initiative and try to contribute something for our fighter Utkarsh Jani.
“MISS YOU UJ!!”
