Sharnarthi Sewa is a registered Non-Profit Organization founded by Mr Purshottam Sharma with the vision to help needy and helpless people. As the name suggests, the organization is not only dedicated to serve humanity but also dedicated to the welfare of other living beings such as birds and animals.

Sharnarthi Sewa is now focused on making the country hunger-free and helping underprivileged people. They have been actively serving the society since 2012 focusing on child development, women empowerment, and care for elderly people. The core areas of the organization include working for slum-dwelling underprivileged people and children. They have been working to fight against hunger by distributing free meals and celebrating hunger-free days.

The organization’s vision is to establish the Sharnarthi Sewa Relief Centers not only in India but also across the world. The organization is working on its long- term vision so that they could extend their presence throughout the world.

Sharnarthi Sewa’s Role during COVID-19 Crisis

The organization has braced itself to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic crisis by making the country hunger-free. They believe that the most affected section of the society in this crisis is the poor, daily wage workers, and the underprivileged people. The following are the support services that they
have been providing to the underprivileged people:

  • They are distributing free dry ration kits to the underprivileged sections of the society to ensure a reliable supply of food in the absence of employment because of the lockdown.
  • They are also serving cooked meals to the ones who don’t have resources to cook food.
