Dr Saraswathi

The memory of Saras Lives On…

Dr Saraswathi  was  graduated from CMC, Coimbatore in India  and came to UK in 1983. In UK, Saras served the community as an Anesthetist. She along with her Consultants Colleagues, helped to save many lives from Road Accidents.

It was ironical that Saras succumbed to head injury on 19 December 1994 from a Road Accident in India and no First Aid was available to save her. Saras never recovered. If there had been a medical help within the first two Golden Hours,she would have survived.

In her memory, a Charitable Organization, Saras Foundation has been established in UK and in India to raise fund . Funds will be used to treat Road Accident Victims through the provision of First Aid, transport to hospital and Counseling. Saras Foundation will also support education and training. With much needed contribution from businesses and individuals from the UK & India, Saras Foundation will achieve the above.

We hope to create a great team in Coimbatore in India and Croydon in London and take things forward. Tel: 0091 422 222 1532 & 0044 208 645 9929. email: sarasfoundationuk@gmail.com
