Vikash is a voluntary organisation based out of Bhubaneshwar and founded in the year 1986. It believes in the human initiative, strength, and innovativeness rather than charity.The organization is working in 14 underdeveloped districts of Odisha, covering over one million individuals. Vikash has been working in the Puri and Khordha districts of Odisha with poor mentally challenged children affected by epilepsy. Being physically weak, they are mostly bed-ridden and suffer from regular bouts of epilepsy. It aims to maximise the potential of the disabled by enhancing their physical strength with the help of medicines. Multi-Rehab workers in the project areas, visit homes of the severely disabled to provide therapy, training, and counseling to the families. These visits teach the parents about how to care for their disabled child. The community-based rehabilitation programme has limited scope to empower the disabled children who have higher levels of disabilities. These children need institutionalized care for a couple of weeks/months. This led to the birth of Mukti Kiran- a residential facility. It hires specialists from the city for intervention.Poor families could not meet the cost of such services. Hence it relies on donation to serve to all those in need.

Access to basic and specialised healthcare treatments
Under this program, Vikash works to provide community-based support to persons with mental illness in the Puri and Khordha districts of Odisha. The program provides medicines for the psychiatric treatment of mentally ill patients who fall below the poverty line and hence, cannot afford to buy the medicines. Mental illness is highly misunderstood and carries a lot of stigmas. The patients are often kept chained and isolated and this worsens their conditions. The field staff of Vikash counsel the families to avail psychiatric treatment and provide them with free medicines. The track the patients to keep abreast of their recovery. With regular treatment, they begin to enhance their ability to control their condition, and work independently and even earn a living. Donate to this program and give a patient like Gadhadar the chance to live with dignity.
