KARUNA GHAR FOUNDATION - LOVE BEYOND MEASURE
Who We Are?
Karuna Ghar Foundation, initiated on November 15, 2006, is a day-care shelter for the underprivileged children in Thane which currently caters to 25 kids. So many children die or live a lifetime of pain and disability as their families are too poor. Karuna Ghar Foundation was created so that no child is denied help. Karuna Ghar Foundation is indeed a shelter of love for the underprivileged children. Belinda Pereira the Founder Director (known in the locality as Amma) is a practical visionary who believes that NGOs can play a concrete role for a robust healthcare system. Initially struggling between a full time job at a call center and Karuna Ghar, ‘Amma’ began this endeavor with 2 children.
What We Do?
Karuna Ghar Foundation is indeed a shelter of love for the underprivileged children. KGF continues to work extensively within the public healthcare system and provides support to kids of all ages, kids of all backgrounds, and even kids who have single parent. Each day we gather in the evening, train the young minds, have some fun and provide them with one meal. Festivals have visits from our well-wishers. Just before school begins, we have a huge collection drive to provide the kids with school material each year. We sell chocolates, sell painted diyas and multiple other things to help alleviate the situation of the children.
