Featured Team Profile
Ganga Prem Hospice
Pooja Dogra joined Ganga Prem Hospice as a coordinator
in September 2009 but her association with the
Hospice goes back to June 2008 when on the way
back from a trip to Harsil and Gangotri, she happened
to stop by at the Ganga Prem Hospice Trustee,
Nani Ma's ashram in Uttarkashi. She was asked
to cover Ganga Prem Hospice's work for a
journalistic article as she had ample experience
working for a Delhi-based consumer affairs magazine.
From that day onwards, her involvement with the
Hospice has only grown, whether it was for organsing
press conferences on the occasion of the World
Cancer and World No Tobacco Days, or helping with
sponsorships for the Hospice events.
Pooja is one of the Hospice's full time employees
and her involvement has meant that many administrative
and fund raising tasks are getting the attention
they need, on a daily basis. She coordinates the
Hospice work with all the team members of Ganga
Prem Hospice, and visits Rishikesh once every
month to help with the monthly cancer clinic.
In Delhi and in Rishikesh, Pooja is assisted by
a team of volunteers who do a fine job of egging
her on, given the fact that sometimes her shy
nature keeps her away from public relations. However,
Pooja still manages to strike a rapport with people
just the same.
At a personal level, Pooja loves to be in Rishikesh
whenever work takes her there. She much appreciates
the loving hospitality offered at the Punjab Sindh
Kshetra premises to all Ganga Prem Hospice members.
Her love of the mountains takes her higher in
the Himalayas whenever an opportunity presents
itself. For most time however, Pooja works from
