Tata Mumbai Marathon 2022

My involvement with the WELFARE SOCIETY FOR DESTITUTE CHILDREN goes back to 2007. Each time I visited this Institute I was touched with the good work done by this Institution. In fact I became a guardian to one of the orphans, and saw him through from Std I to Std XII. During my visits I have seen the happy expression on the faces of the orphans. With the limited resources at their disposal I have also seen the orphanage grow from strength to strength. The orphanage depends on funding from sponsors, donors and welwishers. The Govt. does not fund this organisation. It is my strong desire to see many children from this orphanage reach new heights both academically, culturallIy and become distinguished citizens and sportspersons. I strongly believe that "every child has a right to a decent living." In order to achieve this, your involvement and your genorosity is needed and will be needed. In fact it only right that we reach out and support this worthy cause which will give them a better education and make them better and responsible citizens to face the future.

About Me
I am John Fernandes, residing at Bandra. It has always been my desire to reach out to the poor, needy and marginalised. I am a retired employee from Ms. ABB LIMITED . Presently I am actively involved with the Welfare Society for Destitute Children, Bandra on a part-time basis. Seeing the condition of the poor and needy in Mumbai,I was led to get involved with the Welfare Society for Destitute Children, to assist in whatever way I can and to bring relief to the poor children. I do get a lot of self satisfaction in getting involved and giving my time to help out.
