What inspired us to start ReliefPal?

ReliefPal, a 501(c)(3) public not for profit organization, was formed in honor of Rajiv Jindani,
who was diagnosed with Leukemia after coming to America to pursue his Masters degree.
After his diagnosis, many offered a helping hand to provide support for his treatment costs.
Going forward, we strive to create a world where we can hold each other up and support each other in our times of need.
