Indo-American Charity Foundation (IACF)

     

For the past 32 years, Indo-American Charity Foundation (IACF) has appealed to the philanthropic spirit of the Indo American community in Houston to address needs in the areas of Education, Family, General Welfare and Healthcare in the metro Houston area. Our motto is “We live here, We give here”, and our mission is to foster the local community “whose basic needs are met and where everyone can lead enriched lives”. We have been providing scholarships to high potential college-bound students with financial needs, supporting local charities engaged in improving the STEM education for students in inner-city schools, assisting abused women and children, feeding the homeless and needy,  and providing free medical clinics and vaccinations. Our organization is run fully by dedicated and non-paid volunteers. 

As we are shifting from Pandemic to an Endemic over the last two years, we would like to provide the different initiatives that we at IACF and other associations and more importantly the many volunteers have undertaken.

As to kick start the “Endemic”, IACF will be having one of its signature events Walk-a-Thon: “I Walk- I Care” at 8:00 AM on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at Lost Creek Park in Sugar Land, Texas benefiting the Indian Doctor’s Charity Clinic (IDCC) in a combined effort to raise health awareness and funds to support the IDCC which provides free medical services to the uninsured and underprivileged communities in Houston. 

 

IACF Donates 10 bed Intensive Care Units to two Hospitals in India as part of its Covid Relief Efforts

IACF has been supporting Houston area Covid relief efforts since April 2020. It has heightened its effort in May of 2021 to support the India COVID Relief needs as this Pandemic was impacting the South Asian community in the US with almost all families having a family member, friend or known persons being impacted in India. To that end, IACF partnered with NIRMAAN USA (https://nirmaan.org/) and Khosla Ventures, USA to support the “10bedICU” initiative in rural India and launched “IACF - COVID India Relief Fundraiser’.

Thanks to a generous contribution of $20,000 from our past IACF President Mr. Nanda Vura and an enormous effort by him and our current board member Mr. Pankaj Rana in promoting IACF fundraising efforts as part of the NRG Corporation matching program, and the generous contribution of many of our supporters, we were successful in raising over $115,000. IACF has sponsored 10 ICU Beds for the following two area hospitals in rural India
1. Area Hospital - Bhupalpally District, Telangana State ( Part Sponsor)
2. Area Hospital – Parvathipuram, Vizianagaram District, Andhra Pradesh (Full Sponsor)

We are also supporting 2 other Indian NGO's who also support the Covid relief efforts in India.
