Operation Sunshine


The vast majority of under-priviledged people across the country have limited access to quality healthcare facilities. The KCPRF Team has taken the initiative to provide utmost care and support for individuals who are unable to afford surgical and medical treatment options by covering a portion of the surgical cost or by providing the surgery for free of cost. 

Under the 'Operation Sunshine' project, Kishore Chandra Prasad Research Foundation has undertaken 276 surgeries which include Head & Neck surgeries, Skull Base surgeries, Cochlear Implants and ENT surgeries free of cost in the year 2019-2020. These surgeries are undertaken across 6 different cities such as Bangalore, Mangalore, Bagalkot, Udupi, Manipal and Mysore. 

Apart from these activities, our medical team routinely performs free surgeries as a part of an educational program across countries for individuals who cannot afford the expenses incurred for the required treatments. 


Our KCPRF Team comprises Indi's best well known surgeons and specialists and other doctors who as a group have come forward to offer surgical services at a free of cost or at a subsidized cost. This benefits all the people who cannot afford surgeries for free of cost.
