Origin

It was a dark evening of 1981 when C.K. Mehta, Chairman of Deepak Group of Industries (Deepak Nitrite Ltd., and Deepak Fertilizer and Petrochemical Ltd.) on his way back home after a busy day at the industrial plant in Nandesari (Vadodara) witnessed a woman giving birth in a bullock cart. This disheartening episode led to the establishment of a hospital focused on the health care of women and children in the Nandesari industrial area of Vadodara and later evolved into the establishment of Deepak Foundation.

Deepak Foundation, a Corporate Social Responsibility of Deepak Group, was initiated in 1982 with a vision of providing healthcare facilities to the families of workers and local communities residing in the industrial area of Nandesari. The Foundation has progressed over the period into a leading non-profit civil society in Gujarat and has expanded its services nationwide with branch offices in Pune, Roha and Taloja in Maharashtra, Hyderabad in Telengana, Indore in Madhya Pradesh and New Delhi.

The Foundation implements its activities in close collaborations with communities, government, national and international non-profit organization, research and academic institutions, and networks of civil society organizations (CSOs), including corporate sector. The Foundation has been accredited by Credibility Alliance and also certified as an ISO 9001:2008 organization.
