Rahul Verma founded Uday Foundation in 2007 and the basic idea behind this was to connect with a lot of people.  The main force behind this foundation is his son who was suffering from multiple birth defects in 2006.

Since Rahul and his wife spent so much time in and outside All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS), they saw a lot of outstation patients and decided to start Uday Foundation in 2007.

People can donate small things such as clothes, medicines, dry ration.

The foundation have many volunteers who are spreading the message that people should help each other.

Since their son was in the hospital and was isolated, they started with a story-telling programme for the children in the hospital.

They asked school children to donate their old toys. The programme was started in a small manner but now 138 schools in Delhi are taking part in it.
