Successful businessmen and entrepreneurs generate a lot of money, but they don’t always spend it on themselves. Many of today’s entrepreneurs give back to society through charities, to their communities and to people who are in dire need. One amongst such noble businessmen is Bright Outdoor Advertising’s CMD Yogesh Lakhani who along with Bhavesh Shah, Komal Fofaria, Narendra Chitaliya, Nirmal Shah of MatoshrI Jayaben Himmatlal Shah Charitable Trust (MJHS) has been doing some amazing charitable work.
Believing in the “giving culture”, MJHS has been organizing free distribution of grocery every month on the 1st of Sunday. Basic items usually get distributed to poor people of any cast and the trust has managed to help as many as 325 families with items like wheat, rice, pulses, edible oil, ghee, tea. The main moto of this distribution is nobody should feel the pain of hunger. The trust also gives ‘Ann Ahaar’ every Saturday to more than 700 poor people at Shatabdi Hospital and Chikuwadi office, Borivali West.
Talking about this initiative Yogesh Lakhani says, “The trust was registered in 2007 and its been a while I have been associated with it. It’s my way of giving back to the society and the nation that’s given me so much.” Adding more on the charity, Lakhani shares, “We are trying to touch lives of the people in need through all facets of their lives. So not only are we trying to feed the hungry but also educate the illiterates to help them stand on their feet.”
