Mission & Services
The Shakti Foundation’s message – ‘Heal the World’; its mission statement – ‘Life is short. So work/play hard’. The Words of our Founder Velan Raghuvir, whose presence is felt in all our activities and who remains the sole inspiration and motivation of The Shakti Foundation.
WHO WE ARE?
The Shakti Foundation was born in 1992, out of the anguish faced by Velan’s parents who lost their only son to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in 1998. Rather than lamenting the untimely bereavement of their son, they made up their minds to continue the torch lit by him – to make the general public responsive to the needs of similar victims. The Foundation was registered as a Trust in 1993.
The Shakti Foundation’s message – ‘Heal the World’; its mission statement – ‘Life is short. So work/play hard’. The Shakti Foundation identified with the Adhiparasakthi Medical and Research Hospital as its sole project. This hospital is situated 92 kms from Chennai and caters to the rural poor. The treatment is totally free. The Foundation has equipped this hospital in totality.
