About Us

History

When Leukemia snatched away Vaibhav from his parents Mr. Vijay and Mrs. Sadhana Phalnikar, they braved the loss very courageously and determined to turn this tragedy into an opportunity to serve the humanity.

In this endeavor, they were helped among others by noted artists Shri Suresh Wadkar, a reputed singer and Mrs. Mrinal Kulkarni a famous TV and Cine artist. A free ambulance service for the benefit of the poor was started in early 2002. The Trust helped 20 students financially by way of scholarships. Apala Ghar, a home for economically backward parentless children was started in Nov 2002.

Our second unit at Donje, established in 2007, consists of Home for Destitute Children/Elders, Vocational Training Centre, Rural Hospital, Self contained cottages/suites for guests, Staff quarters and a temple of Lord Ganesha.
