Introduction

Punarnava Charitable Trust is wholly focused on improving the health, education and welfare of poverty struck villages on the outskirts of Coimbatore in Tamilnadu, South India, highlighting, amongst so many pressing demands, the need to feed the neglected elderly and provide a monthly free medical health camp. They specifically address: 

  • Relief of sickness.  Every month they provide a free medical camp to ill villagers for whom this is the only access to medical care.  The difference they make to the quality of life of the sick and diseased is inestimable.  Diabetes, infectious diseases, blindness, strokes, arthritis are  just some of the prevailing issues. 
  • Feeding 100 elderly neglected villagers daily.  With increased urbanisation many elderly are left to fend for themselves with no family to take care of them. Many of them are blind, disabled or immobile. All of them are malnourished and painfully thin. They are too frail to work and would slowly starve to death if it wasn't for the wholesome, fresh, hot meal Punarnava delivers to them daily.  
Careful due diligence was done by an OKA associate who visited them.  The incredible thing about their work is the minimal costs. There are no administrative costs at all as it is run by dedicated volunteers.  Similarly the logistics, doctor's fees, identification process for eligibility is all free.  This means that all the money donated goes directly to those that suffer most with no wasteful and unnecessary administrative costs.
