Change is the only constant.
We can bring that change

Kishore Chandra Prasad Research Foundation is an Indian NGO based in Bangalore. Since 2011, KCPRF has assisted over 3,000 patients with Head & Neck diseases providing them free surgeries or financial assistance to access the best possible healthcare options.


The KCP Research Foundation operates in Karnataka through 10 delegations where the presence of volunteers is highly active. The Core Committee monitors progress across projects and the Scientific Committee monitors research and defines guidelines. KCPRF also carries out awareness raising activities in all levels of schools regarding health matters, prevention, solidarity and volunteering. Furthermore, KCPRF is currently participating in two Government of India projects on hearing and health and improvement strategies to raise the quality of cancer care. At a local level, awareness and fund-raising initiatives and the provision of logistics necessary to home healthcare are under the competence of the Delegations. 

The world can be better.
We can do more

Under the 'Health for Humanity' Project, 10 medical camps are organized each year across the state of Karnataka by a group of volunteering health professionals supported by our sponsors and donors. Over 10,000 patients have availed of free medical checkups over the many camps conducted since the inception of the Foundation. The professional workforce of the Foundation includes volunteering doctors, nurses, psychologists, nutritionists, physiotherapists, pharmacists, health workers, and support staff. Over 50 active volunteers in fundraising activities necessary to financially sustain the work of the doctors. KCPRF is also strongly committed to cancer prevention in the Head & Neck areas with an emphasis on early detection.


Since the inception of the 'Operation Sunshine' Project in 2012, over 200 patients with cancers of the Oral cavity, Oropharynx, Larynx, Thyroid, Paranasal sinuses, and Skull Base have been operated upon free of cost.
