Polio and Children in Need Charity (PACINC) has been a registered charity in both the UK and the USA since 2003.
It grew out of the desire and need seen by three brothers whose father, Vaghjibhai Ranchodbhai Patel, encouraged them to seek “education at any cost.”
This motivated the brothers, who are the founders of Polio and Children In Need to not only aspire beyond what was available to them, but to also education and create opportunities for those who are in circumstances that seem insurmountable.
