Background of This Charity

Aarathy Charitable Trust is a registered Trust, running an old age home named Idhaya Vaasal (entrance to the heart) for 13 years now at Pallikaranai, Chennai.

Before the inception of this charity work, the Trustees were visiting and volunteering many homes in and around Chennai. This was the dream home of  Founder of the Trust, Late Parthasarathy (aka) Service Sarathy, and this home is now continued in memory of Sarathy.

We admit destitute elders sent with police memo & referred by NGOs and the poor and needy patients for their medical and bed-care supports. Since we are regularly paying huge amount for rent and salaries we could not save enough amount for our dream new home.

We humbly request your support to this humanity service project and to make this dream come true. Be a part of this big, noble humanity mission.
