SAMAJ PRAGATI SAHAYOG NIDHI- appeal for support
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.
MSS today shelters over 2100 differently abled people. Over the last 62 years, the expenses associated with treatment, training and rehabilitation of the above population have been met through income generated by various in-house production units, agriculture produce and the contributions from well-wishers. However, today, despite all our efforts to make this population self-reliant, high inflation, irregular rain fall, aging population and insufficient government grants have created a severe financial crunch on the organization putting its existence itself at stake.
The grant received from Maharashtra Government is mere Rs. 15 per person per day that too only for 1200 rehabilitated leprosy patients. In today's inflationary price environment, with such a meager amount, it is next to impossible to fulfill even the basic daily food needs of an individual, forget about providing medical treatment, clothing, education, housing etc.
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. The interest receivable from this fund titled “Samaj Pragati Sahyog Nidhi” will help MSS to meet its recurring expenses and also expand the reach of its activities across a much larger cross section of the society.
If 55,000 people contribute Rs. 10,000 each, the target will be achieved in just a single day.
