Founded in February 2007 by His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh of Jodhpur, the Indian Head Injury Foundation was the outcome of a father’s concern for his injured son. After Maharaja Gaj Singh’s son Yuvraj Shivraj Singh suffered a serious head injury during a polo match, the family was subject to countless medical procedures, numerous remedial opinions and many tough decisions. Seeing the state of India’s social and medical response to head injury accidents and brain trauma, the Maharaja started on a mission to build a comprehensive system for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injury, and to provide neuro-rehabilitation to the victims of such unfortunate incidents.
This is to inform you that IHIF along with the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways and Delhi Traffic Police is participating in a “Walkathon” as a part of Road Safety Week 2016 on 11 January 2016, Monday at India Gate at 10:00 AM starting from Rajpath to Shastri Bhawan. The event is likely to last for about one and a half hours.
As this is an IHIF supported event, please try to participate and be present before 10:00 AM at India Gate.
To fully live upto the day we had few recreational activities at our Centre involving group sessions and playing together.
Singing of songs, drum playing supported by shakers. It was really fruitful to involve the patients together in the group session as they got the chance to interact musically with each other.
The pictures clearly describes that music has no age barrier. This is the group session of a 2 yr child and a 40 yr lady. Our Music Therapist supported both of them with her voice and guitar. Activities like vocalization and body movements, singing familiar songs, call and response and turn taking were done.
It leads to sharing of thoughts and expressing oneself. We had a well spent fun filled music day.
Two heads are better than one, so we’re happy to announce our partners SaveLIFE Foundation (SLF) with whom we work closely to address the serious issue of road accidents in India. We shall work toward addressing road behavior, spreading awareness on basic safety, pushing for the enforcement of traffic laws, and improving the care head injury and brain trauma victims receive. We shall also work in collaboration with countless other organisations to form the National Road Safety Alliance (NRSA). In working together, we hope to form a solid foundation from which will stem increased awareness, stricter road laws and unmatched medical prowess.
