Home Is Where the Heart Is

A shelter home is currently in progress that will get many of these impoverished people from living on the streets. This will prevent the spread of disease and allow for more to be helped. Land has been purchased and the building is in progress, however we have a long way to go to make this new initiative a success. It is this, that we need immediate financial help for.

Akshaya's Mission

Committed to the care of the helpless, forsaken, mentally ill, old, sick, roadside destitute living and dying on the streets of Madurai by providing healthy food, love, and opportunity to rehabilitate, thereby restoring human dignity.

A Worthy Cause

Akshaya's Helping in H.E.L.P. Trust was established as a charitable organization supporting the needy in Madurai, India in 2002.

Utilizing his own personal savings, Narayanan Krishnan fed around 30 people. In 2003, he began to serve feshly-cooked meals, and has since served over 1.7 million meals as of August 2011.

Expanding the visibility to a much larger audience, in 2010, Akshaya USA was founded to support Akshaya's Helping in H.E.L.P. Trust. In addition to supporting the feeding of the hungry and starving on the streets of Madurai, Akshaya USA gives support to people with a variety of needs, such as the sick, mentally ill, helpless homeless, elderly, disabled, victims of rape or violence, those filthy or in need of medical care and those deserted by families or left dying on the street.
