Being Human partnered with Maaya Foundation to provide free treatment to children with severe facial deformities, also known as Craniofacial Deformities. These deformities are congenital and vary in type and severity. A child with craniofacial deformities has difficulty breathing, eating and with speech. In addition to this, the child faces social stigma. Through this program, we aim to reach out to children living with these deformities, across India.

As of April 2017, 130 children have been treated through this program

Being Human was involved in a drought relief initiative in Maharashtra in 2013. This was the worst drought the state of Maharashtra had experienced since 1972. With many people already affected and with cattle rendered hungry without fodder, this drought was the worst kind of natural disaster that the state had faced. Almost 1/5th of Maharashtra was reeling under drought. Water in tankers were being provided by the Maharashtra government but there was an urgent requirement of tanks, for the storage of water, across the districts of Beed, Osamanabad, Jalna, Aurangabad and Nanded - districts which were most affected in Maharashtra.

Being Human–The Salman Khan Foundation procured 2500 tanks, each having a capacity of 2000 litres, and dispersed them across various villages in these 5 districts.

In March 2015, Being Human – The Salman Khan Foundation sent 30,000 woolen blankets to areas in Kashmir which were most affected by the floods that ravaged the state of Jammu and Kashmir the previous year and rendered thousands homeless. We were given to understand that due to the severe winter, blankets were the need of the hour for those who had lost their homes. The blankets were distributed to areas in frontier districts of Baramula and Kupwara, Shopian, Ganderbal. Bandipur, Lolab Valley, Rajwar, Soyibug and Srinagar. We are grateful to the Indian army in Srinagar for helping us reach the blankets to those who needed them most.
