An ambiguous mix of excitement and nervousness is what I recall to be the overwhelming sentiment when I first established Wishes and Blessings in April 2014. A decision taken completely from my heart at the cost of leaving a successful career and raised eyebrows from loved ones; this step was the foundation towards making a childhood dream come true. Wishes and Blessings was envisioned to be a platform for connecting donors with beneficiaries with the aim of spreading happiness and making dreams come true. The thinking behind the enterprise was simple- many of us have unfulfilled wishes while some of us are more blessed and can help others fulfil their wishes; in return of which we receive blessings. Hence the name Wishes and Blessings.
We started by working with visually impaired children and soon our family grew to include orphans, street children, victims of natural and man-made disasters, the elderly and the homeless. Through the years we realized one segment of under privileged people who were constantly undermined are the old and abandoned. Research revealed shocking facts and statistics on the condition of the elderly in the country. Absolutely disheartened by this reality, Wishes and Blessings has decided to set up a CHAIN OF OLD AGE HOMES. This year through the ADHM, we aim to raise funds to set up the first of such homes. I urge all the Wishes and Blessings family members, supporters, friends and donors to step forward and donate generously for this cause. No donation is too small or too big. Remember, your efforts will go a long way in gifting old and abandoned people the love, warmth and care they deserve.
