Forward... One Step at a time...
Chiranjeevi Charitable Trust (CCT) was started by Megastar of Telugu cinema Chiranjeevi on 2nd October 1998. In the beginning the two major wings of CCT have been blood bank and eye bank. Over the years CCT has collected over 9,30,000 units of blood. 79% of these blood units were given to poor and downtrodden for free of cost and remaining units were given to corporate hospitals at a nominal fee. CCT in this period had collected 4,580 pairs of eyes and 9,060 blind people were benefited through cornea transplant at CCT. CCT also won the prestigious “Best Voluntary Blood Bank’ award by State Government of AP for five years in a row from 2002. In the wake of Covid19 pandemic Chiranjeevi took the initiative to start oxygen banks across the worst effected districts in the Telugu states to provide people with oxygen to enable them to battle the pandemic.
