A Global

Non-Profit

Global Cure is an entirely youth-run non-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare worldwide . Our goal is to fundraise for hospital infrastructure and raise awareness for the wide disparities within healthcare. Many individuals perish from simple diseases such as Malaria all because of the fact that they simply lack the access to proper medical care.  Thus, by creating a system in which we could help “youth help others”, we are not only be help supply those in urgent need of medical care with help, but also empower the youth to bring a positive difference via volunteerism.

Furthermore, Health Care is absolutely imperative for everyone around the globe, yet as mentioned before, many individuals lack access to proper medical care. Our goal at Global Cure is to help provide proper healthcare for everyone without discrimination and combat the varying disparities within the medical system. By advocating, and  administering projects in these areas, we hope to inspire not only the youth, but to also uphold the notion that medical care is a absolute necessity for all. 

Hospitals

We are raising funds to donate directly to hospitals. As the population inevitably increases, hospitals become more and more crowded. That's why we aim to help for infrastructure improvements.

Medical Research

It has been estimated that less than 10% of global spending on health research is devoted to diseases or conditions that account for 90% of the global disease burden.

Education

In order to have a strong medical infrastructure and to improve efficacy of medical solutions, education is the key. That is why we fund scholarships for students seeking medical education.

The Youth

Global Cure heavily emphasizes the empowerment of youth in order to combat the disparities that exist within the healthcare system. Majority of our volunteers are youth. As such, by creating a system in which I could help “youth help others”, we not only supply those in urgent need of medical care with help, but also empower the youth to bring a positive difference via volunteerism. Furthermore, Global Cure also encourages the youth to take their own action against our cause as well by initiating school chapters through which youth leaders are able to organize their own fundraisers for our projects.

Premvir understands that health care is absolutely imperative for everyone yet sadly, many hospitals are underfunded or overcrowded. Therefore, he co-founded the club Global Cure. Premvir is elated due to the fact that Global Cure is entirely youth-run, therefore empowered youth become the changers and leaders of their community. In addition, he is excited for the future of Global Cure and how much it will develop and expand due to the steadfast and dedicated nature of Global Cure’s staff and directors.
