Through the Trust, which was established over two decades ago, KP Sanghvi encourages and supports the under-privileged sections of the society in India by providing disaster relief and contributing towards development at a national level. KP Sanghvi has contributed to a number of causes, besides providing relief material, rations and medical care was also provided wherever it was needed in the country. Whether it is natural calamities or national emergencies, KP Sanghvi has taken every step necessary to help those affected, be it during the Kargil War, the Kutch earthquake or the Orissa floods.
The Trust also deals with issues in the local communities, at the grassroots level. For instance, in 2001, when Rajasthan faced severe droughts, the Trust provided cattle fodder to tribes staying in the interior regions and saved their cattle, which was the sole means of their livelihood and income. The Trust also took responsibility to cleanse the ponds and lakes in Sirohi (a city in the South of Rajasthan) which provides regular drinking water supplies in 128 villages across the region. Over the last 20 years, the Trust has planted around 20000 trees, which today, provides a shade for pilgrims who visit the holy town of Palitana, besides contributing to the ecological balance to the region.
KP Sanghvi Hospital, established on 23rd November, 2000 and KP Sanghvi Eye Institute, established on 31st May, 2013 in Surat, provides medical care and medical educational opportunities as a part of its activities.
Pavapuri - A Holy Sanctuary for Pilgrims
The founders of KP Sanghvi Group constructed a Tirth Dham on 30th May, 1998 called the KP Sanghvi Pavapuri Temple, which is visited by over 365,000 people annually. The initial thought was to construct a small temple and a shelter for 100 cows only, but by God’s grace and blessings, the campus is now spread over more than 500 acres of land. The temple complex occupies 31,01,472 sq. ft. area and an animal welfare centre known as the Jeev Raksha Kendra (Animal Welfare Centre), which occupies 71,96,112 sq. ft. area, providing shelter and medical aid to approximately 7250 sick, injured, old, retired, homeless and rescued stray cattle.
When it comes to helping the underprivileged, KP Sanghvi ensures no stone is left unturned. Because just as skill and craftsmanship makes a perfect diamond, every iota of effort to provide succour to the needy makes the world a better place to live in.
