Weavers Colony Welfare
Meet critical needs of economically challenged weavers.
Assist Sourashtrians in the economically backward Weavers Colony in Madurai to meet their critical needs in partnership with SriHari Dhanam Trust (India).
Three categories of support are planned:
Educational help to poor students. Examples: uniforms for economically challenged students, travel expenses towards Engineering and Medical counseling, and books and fees for the school and college.
Medical and Death related. Examples: medical expenses for the economically challenged like eyeglasses, medicine purchase and preliminary help for a small operation (surgery), funeral aid, etc.
Senior Care. Examples: Diwali clothing for aged couples and singles who have no income or other means, recurring financial aid to aged people with no income or other means.
139 beneficiaries received new clothing on Nov 2018. Many palkars have been benefitting from this program during unfortunate times in their lives. That includes two special needs that are supported on an ongoing basis. More requests are being reviewed.
This project is owned by Dhaan's Heritage chapter in Seattle led by Mr. Ganesh Kuduva.
