‘Joy of Helping’ foundation focuses on helping families and children live better. The foundation is an outstanding platform that is run by Mr. Ramesh Shah. Over the years, the foundation has organized several camps, domestically and internationally, for various causes ranging from eye camp for people with cataract, partially blind, and blind, a cardiac camp for children with congenital heart disease, and educational services for children of manual laborers. His passion and devotion towards the vision and purpose of the foundation are impressive and contagious! The foundation, since its inception, has acted as a ray of hope and happiness for countless individuals. The level of commitment that Mr. Ramesh has showcased under this initiative has not only made a remarkable impact on the beneficiaries but also encouraged many others in the community to contribute to and promote such initiatives. We are delighted to be associated with ‘Joy Of Helping’ foundation!

Donor and Volunteer

This is to express my sincere and heartfelt gratitude to you for helping my organization – Nari Gunjan. We work7 with the most marginalized and untouchable community called Musahars. Among them education is nonexistent. We started educating their first-generation children particularly girls. Our target group is adolescent girls who never went to school or are early dropouts. With your help, we are able to continue this work of educating them. With your last contribution, we have a set of new Centres opened in a new area. Because of your generosity, we get the courage to go ahead. We were also able to provide some ration to our needy people during this pandemic. Nari Gunjan and our people will
always remain grateful 4to you for your generous help. May you be blessed with good health and prosperity and sensitivity for the less privileged.

The Trustees of the Child Welfare Trust, Bhuj are delighted to write this testimonial for The NGO run by Mr. Rameshbhai Shah and his team.

Our collaboration with Mr. Rameshbhai is more than 10 years old. He has always extended a helping hand for our Dhanvantri School for specially-abled children which is a dream project of the Late Dr. Shantuben Patel. He has been a great friend, philosopher, and guide for all of us!

Dhanvantri school in Bhuj is a well-known educational institution for special children including Hearing impaired, intellectually challenged, and cerebral palsy as well as an Autism spectrum disorder. This institution takes pride in holistic and innovative learning as well as vocational training for enhancing the skills of these children.  All of these activities need monetary support.  Rameshbhai and his friends are great supporters of our school. Besides the annual donations, they have contributed a significant amount to the Corpus Fund of the Trust. Their vision helps us in qualitative activities for the Teachers, children, and their parents.

Our School has been a boon to the children in Bhuj & surrounding areas. Had the donors & well-wishers not supported so generously & sustainably; these differently-abled children & their families would have had a tough time seeking such special services. Many could not have afforded & accessed the same. Our transportation facilities, nutritional care, Teachers’ training, Vocational training program are most valuable for the betterment of the children. 

We all are grateful and thankful to Mr. Rameshbhai and his team!


Child Welfare

Thanks to the active and generous support of Joy of Helping

We have been in a position to continue offering highly subsidized ophthalmological care and surgery to the rural population in and around our Raigad hospital which is nestled amongst 200 Adivasi villages

We can’t thank them enough for Their years of continued support in the maintenance of our unique schools located on the jetties and the seashores of kutch. This has helped provide a conducive hygienic and health education facility for over 1500 fishermen’s children who otherwise would find it impossible to continue their education.
Helping hands in the post-Covid scenario has taken up Skill development in basic rural technology as their new thrust area with us, where we facilitate the skilling and grooming of rural agriculture-based youth for employment and economic upliftment opportunities.

The years of continued support from Helping hands has been one of the pillars on which we have been able to build a strong platform to launch and host our comprehensive development initiatives

We once again thank them and assure them of our very best efforts in furthering  their faith in all the endeavors

I would like you to know that one of Kenya’s largest telecommunication co-operation, Safaricom Limited have come on board with Ayudh in the White Crane Project. They have agreed to give the Visually Impaired 2,000 Braille Machines and for the 15,000 Visually Impaired Canes that will be distributed they will give US$ 20/- worth of food to each and every one of them. This takes our project to US$ 3 Million from a mere 300 Canes that we had started with 14 years ago.

We sincerely want to thank you that the Visually Impaired in Kenya have received this big blessing because of your donation of 15,000 Canes that you have humbly given out to be distributed by Ayudh throughout Kenya.

I pray for God’s blessings to always shine upon you in the good work you do. We will keep you updated as the Launch will now take place on Tuesday 21st July 2020. Furthermore, I want you to know that we have distributed 1,500 Canes and 1,500 food packs with the help of my brother, Dr. Manoj through the Lions Club in 12 Counties in Kenya. All the accounting will be sent to you with the names and details of all the 1,500. We also have been joined by one of Kenya’s biggest Security Company like DHL Courier who has also come on board to deliver our Canes so that accountability and transparency of the goods by the correct recipients takes place during this Covid-19 times when we cannot personally hand them over as we cannot leave our homes in Nairobi.

Once again Mr. Ramesh, may Amma’s blessings always shine upon you for the good work you do every breath of your life. 

Thank you for supporting the Visually Impaired in Kenya and on their behalf it is almost a miracle that has happened.

We were fortunate to have an opportunity during our India visit of 2017 to join Mr. Ramesh Shah of Helping Hand to visit several charitable organizations in India. This will be a pleasant memory for us for a long time. 
 This organization is selflessly reaching out with helping hands to many needy and deserving groups of less fortunate children and families.
This includes education for blind children, eye camps, blood donation camps, needy farmers in India as well as other developing countries.
This organization is always alert to assure the use of charitable giving for the beneficiaries. This organization carefully selects the recipient group and follows through the details to accomplish highly satisfactory results.
We enthusiastically encourage others to promote such initiatives. We are very fortunate to be associated with the ‘Joy Of Helping’ foundation.


A big shout out to ‘Joy of Helping’ for partnering with us in setting up vision centers across the rural hinterlands of the state of Bihar, where 700,000 people are blind, 4.3 million are visually impaired, and 19 million need spectacles but do not wear one. Each of these vision centers will help provide free surgery to 800 needy patients, screen 7,800 individuals, and dispense 2,400 spectacles annually. Joy of Helping is also supporting us with IT hardware, outreach mobile application, and an HIS (Hospital Information System) system, which will further enable us to provide affordable, accessible, and sustainable eye care services in the region.

Lions Sight First Eye Hospital...

… has been actively involved in eye care since its inception in July 1997. By December 2019, over 5, 226 community eye screening camps have been held and more than 1,346,738 patients been seen and 70,589 had their vision restored through cataract and 4,391 through other different eye surgeries.  The hospital has served more than 2.5 million patients.

Community Impact

This is the most unique part of our operation in which, we visit remote villages to screen people, identify those who need cataract surgeries. We transport these patients to the base hospital at Nairobi where they are admitted for 3 days. We provide them with free accommodation, surgery, medicines, and meals and then transport them back to their homes. On discharge, the patients are given medication to last 30 days until the next review at the campsite. They are then reviewed for the next 3 months to ensure the surgery was successful. 

Everyone deserves happiness
