( Technical staff Sharon Society of Pondicherry)
Our Founder - Mr. G. Mohan
Mr. Mohan worked as an auto-rickshaw driver for over 13 years. One day, while
riding in an auto-rickshaw, he saw a lady lying in the street in pitiful states. She
resembled his mother, so he took her to his house and provided comfort. Later, he
noticed that so many elderlies are living their lives on streets without any care &
proper necessities. He devoted his life to these older people and started to help
them by providing necessities and food items.
In 2002, Mohan registered his social work as a society called "SHARON SOCIETY OF
PONDICHERRY" and started to participate in social activities organized by the Non-
profit organization and government. In 2008, he took a home on rent and
accommodated 5 elderly surviving spouses. Later, in 2011, he started a mobile rescue
project to rescue destitute abandoned elderlies from streets called "Snehan". By this
time Mohan was having a team to work with and started another project called
"Sharon Special School" for rehabilitation and treatment for persons with disabilities.
Now, Mohan is successfully executing more than 9 projects including government
projects and helping more than 50 elders and 25 PwDs.
STAY HOME! STAY SAFE !
The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air, and quickly fall on floors or surfaces. You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within close proximity of someone who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then your eyes, nose or mouth.
COVID19- Disaster Relief work
Due to COVID 19, the entire country was a lockdown and all factories and workplaces shut down. As a result, many migrant workers are left with no livelihood. They thus decide to walk hundreds of kilometers to go back to their native villages. But many of them stuck due to no transport facilities.
In such a tough time, we decided to do our part to help these daily wages workers from community and Municipality Workers, Auto Drivers, Frontline Health Workers, abandoned elders, and children with CANCER & their parents.
