Our Team

We were founded in April 2010 by Dr. Pulak Sahay wanting to raise awareness of Reflux Disease and committed to help spread information about the disease. The charity aims to help people detect the symptoms early and make better lifestyle choices to prevent the condition in the first place.

Dr Pulak Sahay – founder chair-person

A Gastroenterologist Dr. Pulak Sahay, whose sub speciality interest is Gastro Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD) , has brought together a group of patients and organises regular meetings and lectures given to GPs, to spread the word about GORD and its management by lay persons so that they can ask for help at the right time.

He is an avid painter and poet and has held exhibitions of his paintings & poetry and sold these to raise awareness and monies for charity.

Mrs. Minoo Singh – Event organiser & coordinator

Mrs. Minoo Singh being a banker juggled work & home which gave her a fair share of stress leading to heartburn. Even though her husband was a GP she never gave it much thought & depended on antacids. Only after she got associated with Dr. Pulak Sahay & the CARD Charity that it struck a chord with her & she realised how naive she had been to not see the dangers of constant heartburn. And so she became a convert to CARD & as it’s ambassador has become instrumental in spreading awareness among the masses through CARD.
