Service To Mankind is Service To God
Message From Founders
Growing up, we found ourselves surrounded by an abundance of resources and opportunities. There was access to quality education, extracurricular activities, and support of family and friends. Living comfortably, we were completely oblivious to the challenges faced by those living in poverty. Gradually, we came across large number of people with lack of resources. It gradually dawned upon us that the combination of poverty, illiteracy and lack of resources had a paralyzing effect on thinking, leading to a vicious cycle, one difficult to break through. In this scenario, to do nothing, we felt, would be inhumane. That is more so, when one is privileged and in a position to lend a helping hand. Finally, we decided to do our bit in helping out the underprivileged.
For over two decades now, we have been working directly with the disadvantaged, while also supporting other indivduals and organizations. In 2013, we decided to donate one salary from the household annually for five years, most likely renewable. We co-founded a nonprofit organization with the idea of helping those in need and started building teams and collaborations to fulfill our vision at the grassroots level. We have endeavored to provide help cutting across religious, racial, caste, linguistic, political and socio-economic divides and biases to bring dignity and cheer to the underprivileged.
Being physicians, we also felt compelled to play a role in halting the rising prevalence of the non-communicable chronic diseases through lifestyle modification. Having overcome several challenges, we have created sustained impact in some communities. We now wish to increase our efforts to support many more, and request your wholehearted support in this endeavor of ours.
Our team is made up entirely of volunteers, who advocate for the needy. Even a little help goes a long way. That is why we are happy to have new volunteers who share our commitment of doing good to the world. Do not hesitate to contact us. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated. Together, we can do more.
