Established In 1984 by a Nobel soul , Dr Vasant Parikh and his wife Late Ratnaprabha Maniar, Karuna Setu Trust has been working for various social causes & has been able to contribute to the society in a very constructive manners to spread cheers to thousands of families. Our activities include free eye camps for poor's, food for children, food grain distribution for widows and needy ones, clothes distribution ,cattle camps, activities for salt workers, welfare activities such as ambulance, public gardens, check dams, deepening the wells, hostels for students etc. The Trust also gets involved in rehabilitation activities post natural calamities like tsunami, earth quakes, floods, draught etc. We try to kindled light in many eyes, reduce sorrows, satisfy hunger and cure T.B. sufferers. We remember all who have assisted many families, to the hard working hawkers and gave eye lenses to hundreds which is immense if measured in monetary terms. But how can one equate in terms of money, the joy of regaining one's eyesight? Kutchh, Banaskantha, Sami Taluka have the satisfaction of saving their cattle's especially cows, through cattle camps by the trust. Roofs of hundreds of houses are renewed. The trust adopted a village Anantpur in Kutch destroyed in the earth quake. About half a core was spent for A school, Temple, Community Hall and for newly built Houses.

Only the feeling like unseen God, the donors are not seen by those beneficiaries, so the trust gets undeserved thanks and gratitude on your behalf. If the trust describes all that is being done with your kind contribution ,it will belittle your grace.We will try to work with head and heart, hoping that someday, a new self reliant society takes birth which may not need such social service.
