Project Keeping Pace
Founded in 2012 by Natasha Harpalani, a high school student in south Florida whose interest in electro-cardiology led her to develop a service project that provides certified second-hand medical devices and equipment from the United States to medical clinics in developing countries like India. The project primarily focuses on cardiac pacemakers.
Keeping Pace donates 20+ Pacemakers to Holy Family Hospital, Mumbai
To save lives by recovering medical devices including recycling pacemakers and providing them to low-income individuals in third-world countries who need them in order to continue to live normal lives.
Keeping Pace has partnered with funeral homes and crematoriums throughout the southeastern United States who donate pacemakers and other medical devices to us that would otherwise have been destroyed.
These medical devices are collected and then inspected by Board Certified Cardiologists and are then shipped to medical clinics in India to make an impact in the lives of local patients.
