JUST INR 2300 WILL FUND A VACCINATION FOR ONE WOMAN
I am raising funds to provide HPV vaccinations to the didi’s who work in my school. I believe this is necessary as Cervical Cancer is a very common disease for women and can lead to death. Many of these didi’s are unaware of this and cannot afford to spend money on the vaccinations.
I AM RAISING INR 13000 TO HELP 5 WOMEN GET VACCINATED.
My name is DHRUV KHERA. I am 13 years old and in Grade 8 at Pathways School, Noida
I am running a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds and help the didi’s at my school by providing them with a vaccine that prevents cervical cancer. It is a very common disease for women and may lead to death. It is better to get these vaccinations and prevent it.
These vaccinations will be provided to women who are not aware of cervical cancer and are from financially poor homes. The name of the vaccine is the HPV vaccine. Each patient requires 3 doses of the vaccination. The vaccinations will be purchased from Pharmacia Enterprises located in Dilshad Garden, Delhi.
This campaign aims to raise INR 13000 and help 5 women get the HPV vaccination.
WHAT IS CERVICAL CANCER?
Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the cells of the cervix — the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Various strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection, play a role in causing most cervical cancer.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
