Ms Upasana Kamineni Konidela, Vice-Chairperson - CSR, Apollo Hospitals group; said, “it’s an emotional journey for me, when a child gets sick it emotionally impacts the parents and when child goes back healthy and happy it’s a sense of happiness and fulfilment for all of us. Thank the doctors for working hard and bringing the smile on the children’s and parent’s faces, as a mother I have experienced it. During my pregnancy journey I had so many people supporting and giving me advice and that was a blessing for me. I came across single mothers who were looking for support and as Vice-Chairperson CSR for Apollo Hospitals Group, I thought we should extend free OPD for children over the weekend. This initiative will encourage more and more single mothers to support their young ones and I am here with you in this emotional voyage the same way as you feel and let’s make our children healthy and happy together. Through my own personal journey I now know what a mother goes through. I know how stressed a mother is when a child is not feeling too good. I think parenting is very important and I am lucky to have a very nice spouse who can co-parent with me. But how about the single mothers out there who are parenting just by themselves without any help, that’s where I feel the pain and want to be there to support them and that is where the idea of Apollo Children’s has been conceived from. If people of Hyderabad are getting benefited out of this new facility, I am sure we can roll it out throughout the country.”
“Patient centricity is at the core of what we do at Apollo. With the largest dedicated number of multidisciplinary paediatricians, legacy of best patient outcomes and use of best technology, we are all set to provide comprehensive pediatric care.
