ABOUT SaveLIFE Foundation (SLF):

SaveLIFE Foundation (SLF) is an innovative nonprofit organization established to tackle one of India's most serious epidemics: the dramatic escalation of road accident deaths in India with 15 fatalities recorded every hour on average. With the help of Bloomberg Philanthropies, Global Road Safety Partnership, Ashoka, Echoing Green and other organizations, SLF is creating high-impact solutions that help to save countless lives. Realizing the crucial role that trained bystanders can play in saving the lives of road accident victims, especially given the lack of EMS in most parts of India, the organization has successfully developed an award-winning model of emergency care, which trains, connects and mobilizes community volunteers and police officers to the aid of injured victims well before formal care is available.


SLF is currently advocating for a comprehensive national road safety law for India including a supportive legal environment for bystanders to come forward and assist injured victims without fear of danger, harassment and intimidation.
