In 1980, at age 18, Ravishankar Bhooplapur became the youngest member of the Rotary Club of Dharwad, Karnataka, India. Seven years later, he made another commitment - to help people in need by contributing a percentage of each paycheck to The Rotary Foundation. Since then, Bhooplapur has made good on that commitment time and again. Continuing on to become an assistant governor of District 7250 (New York, USA) and a member of the Rotary Club of Great Neck, he founded Gift of Life, India, which treats children with congenital heart defects. He has participated in two National Immunization Days in India and helped obtain matching grants to fund health initiatives there. He also sponsors 120 Indian children, providing them with food water and an education. In addition he has established dialysis and physiotherapy centers, eye care centers, and blood banks for immigrants in New York. In 2003, Bhooplapur received the Foundation's Citation for Meritorious Service. He and his wife, Jayasheela, have contributed more than $250,000 to the Foundation and committed $1 million to the Permanent Fund as Bequest Society members. They are charter members of the Arch C KlumphSociety, which is named after the founder of the Foundation and honors major donors who contribute $250,000 or more. "The Rotary Foundation was the medium that allowed me to fulfill my lifelong dream of helping people in need," said Bhooplapur.

Both the idea and a fifth of the funds for purchasing the medical van came from Ravi Bhooplapur, the chief executive officer of Vision Financial Services Inc., a medical insurance company, and a member of the Great Neck chapter of the Rotary Club.
"Mr. Bhooplapur is a friend of mine, and he's very supportive of the hospital," said Dr. Ganesh Bhat, a chief of medicine and medical director at North Shore University Hospital at Forest Hills.
Bhooplapur gave $10,000 toward the new van from his own personal funds.Another $12,500 came from the Rotary Club in India, $2,000 came from the insurance company AXA, $250 came from the Great Neck chapter of the Rotary Club, $250 from the Queens and Nassau chapters of the Rotary Club, and the remaining $25,000 came from the Rotary Foundation.
"The House Calls program was very, very appealing to me," said Bhooplapur, who is also from India."Back home it's always house calls."
The House Calls program currently is staffed by one full-time doctor and three auxiliary staff.Visits to patients' homes usually take at least two hours, including transportation time.
To qualify for the House Calls program, patients must be 65 or older, physically unable to leave their homes without extraordinary means, geographically close to the hospital and lacking adequate health care at home.
