BENEFITING: ARPAN FOUNDATION INCORPORATED
Appeal for support
“I sought my soul,
But my soul I could not see.
I sought my God,
But my God eluded me.
I sought my brother,
And I found all three.”
On 21st June 2011, Maharogi Sewa Samiti, Warora (MSS) completed 62 years of its existence. Founded way back in 1949, the organization had a very humble beginning. Baba Amte and his wife Sadhanatai, with six leprosy patients, a lame cow, a capital of Rs. Fourteen and an unrelenting optimism, set about carving a home for people afflicted with leprosy on a barren piece of land which was aptly named „Anandwan‟ (Forest of Bliss). In the last 6 decades, about 2.3 million marginalized souls have benefited from various activities run by MSS.
The grant received from Maharashtra Government is mere Rs. 15 per person per day that too only for 1200 rehabilitated leprosy patients.In order to bring a perpetual stability to the current activities of MSS, we strive to create a Constructive Corpus Fund of Rs. 55 Crores.
We hereby appeal to you to come forward and whole heartedly help MSS to regain its financial health. Baba Amte always said, „The greatest joy comes in life when you invest in others‟. We assure you that your investment on thousands of marginalized souls will always yield the best social returns.
