ASHIC foundation was established in 1994 and has been carrying out many successful programs in Bangladesh. In 1997, ASHIC established a play center at the pediatric ward of the Dhaka Medical College Hospital. The first of its kind in the country, the center is open to all children in the ward but provides special privileges to cancer-affected children. The foundation also established two other play centers at Sylhet and Chittagong Hospitals in 2003 and 2004.
