about making head ways with her NGO, Ruhi Hak said,

“I am a
networking engineer, that is my regular job, but Hope B’lit is my life’s
purpose. It’s passion for me, which my friends helped me realize and achieve.
And I would like give out this message only, NGO is not a regular job, if you
don’t make it as regular job, it would be beneficial for the NGO. Earn your
bread from someplace else, because then you wouldn’t have to worry about your
survival. Have a second source for living and whatever you make or earn in NGO,
give it to your cause. The structure of NGO’s have gone for a toss because
people end up making it their job, don’t do it. NGO is a passion and let it be
your passion”

is a National Society for Change for Childhood Cancer in India for
holistic care for children with cancer and their families since 2004. It aims
to improve Survival of children with cancer, Quality of Life and the Rights of
the Child with Cancer and the Family.

Talking about
the negativity Ruhi faced and how she made it her stepping stone of success,
she added,

“In India it
is different, but when I went to USA, they asked me for my qualifications and I
faced a lot of negativity, but like I said, it’s my passion, so I ended up
making all negativity my tagline – I teach better because I am not a teacher, I
do oral care better because I am not a dentist, and I make movies better
because I don’t make movies to make a living.” 

Ruhi Hak
even made a short documentary ‘Got Cancer” which was nominated as the
Best Human-Interest Film and aired on National television in Los Angeles.

about her film and its unusual name, Ruhi said, “People asked me what kind of
name is that, Got Cancer, and I said they got cancer, so let’s talk about
Cancer. We like to keep things simple and we make simple things, as kids are
simple. We made a film on a kid and we got so much love and appreciation, of
course money as well.”

adding Ruhi said kids are stronger than adults and in order to survive cancer
it’s important to have support and good mental health. She said, “Kids deal
with cancer a lot better than adults. See kids are simple and they are not
easily scared, so the fear factor is less as compared to adults. Mental health
in case of Cancer is most important

“Cancer is
an illness, just like a fever. Please don’t abandon your child; there is a lot
of support out there in cities and other places. That child will get the
support. My only plea to parents is do not leave your child, support the kid”

Ruhi Hak said,
“Cankids has adopted a multi-pronged strategy that includes working in
partnership with hospitals like AIIMS etc. to provide holistic support to
children affected with cancer and their families across India CanKids works
across 22 states in over 89 cancer centres in 42 cities and treats more than
12,000 new cases of childhood cancer each year. “
