What People Say about DCRF Pune

DCRF Value your Comments & Suggestions

  • As a mother, it is very important to motivate your child to lead a certain lifestyle from a very young age. Diabetes is something that, if cannot be avoided, can be handled with certain lifestyle changes. These can help your child become the next Wasim Akram, become an Ishaan. As a mother, and I speak for all mothers, I support this Foundation (DCRF) with my whole heart.

  • I Salute Dr. Mutha on behalf of the entire Sports fraternity, for the war he has waged against Diabetes and the impact he has created on Society regarding the issue. I urge you all to put up a solid fight against Diabetes. Stand by Dr. Mutha, and make great headway in this effort. Only then will our country say "Chak De"

  • Are you aware that hundreds of our sweet little children die every year of Juvenile diabetes. Diabetes Care & Research Foundation (DCRF), under the wise leadership of Dr. Abhay Mutha, is doing a great job of curing poor children with diabetes. They need volunteers, will you be one of those volunteers? You will be truly blessed.

  • Dr. Mutha, I think this is a really wonderful initiative. There are two things that touched my heart. The first is the story of Arbaaz and his mother (Can give a nice hyperlink to clipped video here). That is the great work that the foundation is doing - touching the life, touching the hearts of underpriviledged diabetic children. 450 kids is a huge number, but the foundation is not satisfied. They want to reach to everyone on a national level. Thats a huge credit in itself, because people who are successful are never satisfied. The second thing is the story and experience of Ishaan. In life, everyone wants a role-model. And I think that Ishaan is one such role-model. The message to all parents is don't restrict your children, if at all they suffer from diabetes, to fulfill their dreams. Ishaan is a classical example to show that if you take proper care, and under the guidance of eminent doctors like Dr. Mutha and the foundation, you can achieve all your dreams. All the very best to DCRF and thank you very much for having me here.
