Helping victims of natural disasters
Rescuing and helping victims of natural disasters has become over the years an important part of the Foundation’s working. For instance, the Foundation raised Rs13 lac on its own for the flood victims in the Mahad area during 2005 and added another Rs 2 lac donated by philanthropic organizations like Maharashtra Foundation and Share and Care. The trustees of the Janaseva Foundation made it a point to visit the affected areas and conveyed them help in the form of foodgrains, clothes, medicines and money. The Foundation had also earlier donated Rs. 1 lac to the cause of Gujarat earthquake and Tsunami.
The foundation has taken up what is named as Green Valley Project in cooperation with Vanarai, Sufalam Nursery (Raman Khinvansara) and Lions International. Under the project, nearly 5000 trees including medicinal plants have been planted on 2.5 acres of land at Ambi and Katraj
