In 2011 when we lost our beloved only grandson Kanishka, and our whole family was fully emerged in sorrow and grief, at that critical and sadden period, Julie ‘B’ Olson of Mayo Clinic, Primary Hyperoxaluria center wrote a very soothing and warming letter to me and my wife Nistarini Saha dt. 21st July, 2011. Her letter gave us consolations at that sadden period. Thus I got the inspiration to form a Foundation to commemorate the memory of the great child Kanishka Binayak Saha and also cherished the wish and object of the great boy to save and protect the future generation of both sides of the globe from dreadful disease Hyperoxaluria. Accordingly I have formed a registered Trust on 10th December, 2011. It is a charitable Trust and is named “Kanishka Binayak Memorial Foundation”. Myself also promised to donate almost of all saving of my life for such noble cause. But, it is also a fact that this is not enough for such noble cause and for which I am earnestly soliciting the help, support (Technical, medical and financial) from all judicious, sympathetic and conscious minded people of the globe to make the foundation successful and fruitful and thus we all will be able to save and protect the future generation from the attack of such dreadful disease – Hyperoxaluria. I hope that I have been able to hammer your wisdom for such noble cause.
