Synopsis
 

Anshu Gupta – An incident of gross sanitary neglect that claimed the life of a young girl in a small city in North India, changed the direction of Anshu Gupta’s life forever. He quit his job to find some viable solutions to India’s rural women’s most basic sanitary need. The result is his strong organisation Goonj (Echo), which collects donated clothes and processes them into sanitary napkins, which are then distributed in the rural areas of 21 states across India.

After the death of her husband due to lack of medical facilities, Subhashini Mistry was left with 3 kids to bring up and one mission to fulfil – she swore that someday she would start a charity hospital. It took her a long time and effort but, finally, made the impossible possible. Their Humanity Hospitals in – and Sunderbans today treat thousands of poor patients in West Bengal.
