Our tributes to Late Shri Vimal Kumar Jain who died at Pune in a Road accident. He was a Guest of Honor at our Inaugural Function and Honoring the Donors on June 5, 2011 and in a brief speech of less than three minutes left a big impression. While explaining the essence of charity, he also showed the way it should be done and at the same time not to let down the person who is recipient of Charity.

Our Heartfelt Condolences to the Family of Shri Vimal Kumar Jain.
