I needed someone to grab onto me and they did. I was very sick – six months left to live. I didn’t think I would make 40. And here I am, almost 70! I’m so grateful for Maitri’s care. It’s exactly what I needed.”

Because They Deserve It

Many transgender people like Daniel don’t have access to affordable care after gender-affirming surgery and recover alone.  

Maitri Compassionate Care is expanding its medical facility from one room to three rooms dedicated to pre- and post-gender-affirmation surgical care. This new wing offering compassionate care will be known as Maitri Affirmation Center (MAC). Building MAC and sustaining the care staff and equipment for a year is expected to cost $1 million. Maitri needs support and will match all donations up to $100,000.
