The SEAL Ashram has made it possible for them by not only rescuing them and giving them a safe haven but also freeing them from their condition of despair,” the statement read.
The Harmony foundation on Monday, through a statement, lauded the SEAL Ashram for the work they have done to help rescue missing children.
“The SEAL Ashram, since 1999, has been dedicated to the mission of rescuing destitute and missing children. From the railway platforms and streets of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. In view of our nation’s 75th year of Independence Day celebration, we salute the remarkable work of the SEAL Ashram who freed these children from destitution and deprivation, the press release said.”
They also acknowledged the sacrifices made by freedom fighters, “Our leaders who dedicated their lives to freeing our nation, envisioned an independent India which was free from societal injustice, free from impoverishment, and free from all societal barriers which impeded our nation’s progress, and it is inspiring to see how organizations like the SEAL Ashram have followed the path of compassion and solidarity laid down by our freedom fighters”, they said.
“When no one was there to take care of these unfortunate ones, SEAL Ashram came to the rescue of these destitute and freed them from the clutches of their aggravating and heart-wrenching conditions of impoverishment and destitution,” the statement read.
Describing the experience on the 76th Independence day the statement said, ” It was such a joy to see the residents of the SEAL ashram which constitute the sick, the elderly, HIV positive patients, mentally challenged and the orphan kids all dressed up in Tiranga T-Shirts joining together in hoisting the national flag”.
“Had these destitute people been left at the mercy of deprivation like the voiceless hundreds of thousands living on the streets across the nation in their miserable and despairing condition, they would not have been able to celebrate our Independence Day in its truest sense,” the statement added.
“The SEAL Ashram has made it possible for them by not only rescuing them and giving them a safe haven but also freeing them from their condition of despair,” the statement read.
The statement concluded by saying “As we celebrate the 75th year of our nation’s Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, it reminds us of the monumental freedom of these marginalized people of our society from their harrowing condition before the SEAL Ashram rescued them”.
“The Harmony Foundation truly commends and salutes the selfless endeavours of the SEAL Ashram, especially Rev. K.M. Philip, Rev. Biju Samuel, and their dedicated team who have followed the truest ideals of kindness and benevolence, of which the revered Mother Teresa was a true embodiment.”
Stating that harmony foundation revives hope and trust in humanity the statement said, “In a world that is easily swayed by materialistic pursuits, it is organizations like the SEAL Ashram revives our hope, faith, and trust in humanity. It is a joy for the Harmony Foundation to stand.”
Expressing solidarity the statement said, “In solidarity with the Seal Ashram and its inmates in this joyous celebration of our nation’s 75th Independence Day”.
