Story

Mirai Foundation came into existence with the sole purpose of cultivating kindness and helping those less fortunate than us. My journey on this path started almost 2 years ago when I lost my father to cancer. I was devastated, lost and looking for closure. I wanted to do something with a purpose that would give meaning to his unfortunate passing, to honour his legacy of selfless sewa. We hope to carry forward his vision and determination in regards to his mission of building electric crematoriums, laying down pucca roads and drains, providing farmers interest-free short terms loans and his passionate endeavours of making educational institutions available to all.
The answer came to me when an acquaintance posted about their visit to AIIMS Rein Basera. People dealing with end-stage diseases require a lot of help, be it counselling, food support or medical/diagnostic help. I thought if I am able to provide them with some relief from their discomfort, maybe we could share the pain and ease the burden on everyone’s shoulders. I had a strong urge to help others, which lead to the start of the Mirai foundation.
Our main aims include:
medical & diagnostic help to outstation patients, who are unable to afford the same given their economic background.
providing cooked meals & dry ration to those in distress during the Covid-19 crisis.
Though primarily into medical/diagnostic help for BPL patients, our journey into food distribution was accidentally initiated by desperate calls/appeals from patients and their families stranded at AIIMS Rein Basera. The help they were receiving from the state (two meals a day), while appreciated, was not enough to sustain a lot of patients’ dependant on life-saving drugs. Further, many of the kidney patients were unable to digest rice, adding to their misery. Thankfully we were able to help them and moreover this past month of crisis.
Since the start of lockdown, we have successfully been able to feed over 2500-3000 people a day. We have also distributed 15,000 kilograms of dry ration in collaboration with other donors and organisations, in addition to providing the meals. While we are proud of what we have achieved so far, we realise there is a long way to go and everyone has a part to play. With the lockdown extended and more desperate pleas, calls & messages flooding our numbers we are now compelled to ask for assistance to sustain this endeavour.
We now look forward to help & contributions from donors so that we are able to sustain these meals in the coming days. The need is there, the resources are available, but it is only a matter of directing them the right way and using them efficiently. Most of us want to help and be able to make a difference during these incredibly trying times. This is an opportunity for us to contribute to the betterment of our society and honour the memory of those who are not with us. We look forward to and appreciate your help.
