Human Chain to Raise Funds for MS Patients

On February 1, 2009, a group of caregivers of multiple sclerosis patients and members of the regional MS Society chapter will form a human chain with the aim to create awareness and raise funds for the treatment and rehabilitation of MS patients.

Multiple sclerosis is an expensive disease and many patients cannot afford the cost of treatment. An all too common experience for many MS patients.

With just a handful of patients a few years ago, the city today has around 200 people afflicted with MS, a chronic progressive disease of the central nervous system. Of these, only a few can afford treatment as it costs as much as Rs one lakh a month.

Costs what?

Rs-1 lakh = 100,000 Indian Rupees = approximately $2050 USD in today’s exchange

What else could one buy with Rs-1 lakh in India? Well...
