Meet the Founder

While serving as a paediatrician in a Govt. hospital in Hyderabad, she noted that some children would die to due to lack of basic resources, even by the time she would finish rounds daily. This made her resolve to bring a change in such conditions. She later moved to Chennai and had similar experiences of infants and neonates dying in ICU due to heat stroke, as they did not have air-conditioning. She then started EKAM.Inspite of unfavourable odds at times, trying to support numerous children with minimal funds, she has managed to provide support to many children and helped ease the discomfort of parents who could not afford health care for their children. Dr. Sai Lakshmi has received numerous awards for her work through EKAM.
