Restaurateur turned social crusader, Harish Shetty’s Ambagopal Foundation have launched a Cancer Initiative to create awareness about the ailment and causes which leads to this fatal disease.
Talking about the Foundation core work strengths and objectives, Harish said, “The foundation is named after my parents, who led the value system for its core strength. We work in various fields, from providing care of elderly people, food and other assistance. We work on sustaining a better life in harmony with nature. Chemical free food, portable water and clean air, are some of our major work areas. We’re also running campaign to curb the gap between elderly and younger generation, which is a crucial element in providing a dignified life to older people”
The foundation runs two of the biggest initiatives – Aharveda and Hosh (Help our society Heal).
Talking about the initiatives, Suparna Wankhede said, “In Aharveda, we cook food with correct temperature, which helps sustain all the vitamins and nutrients within the food and then this food is distributed. We buy straight from farmers, so the middle man culture is tossed out. We cook with German technology”
Talking about the event, Shekhar Suman said, “It’s really nice initiative. I feel it’s our social responsibility to do something for our society, country and the world. I feel we are being responsible for destruction of the world and it’s all because of our mistakes and greed. Having a disease is a natural thing and living species are going to die someday but if it happens before the time then, we are responsible for it. God gives us signals so we have to understand and identify those signals. I feel it’s our responsibility to make people aware about it so, I am thankful to Harish Shetty ji and Suparna ji who have taken this initiative.
Ambagopal Foundation works in association with Tata Memorial Hospital, providing food and other requirement to needy.
