All persons are priceless gifts of God. Some are unfortunate enough to be parted from their families. They remain stranded on the road sides in extreme weather conditions without food, shelter and care. These helpless citizens spend their days and nights in very inhuman conditions even worse than stray animals. The Society, Prabh Aasra, makes efforts for rehabilitation of these neglected and under privileged citizens. Someone has rightly remarked "that there is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of way to make life beautiful for others". Prabh Aasra is making efforts in bringing a hope of rehabilitation to a hurting world where no one should cry for treatment, care food, clothes shelter, justice and fresh water/air etc. Since the inception of Society in 2004, 1844 inhabitants were admitted out of whom were 1189 reunited with their families after reviewing them mental health. As on date 432 residents are living in the Society.

There is great inflow of inhabitants to the Society who are sent for admission by various senior Government Authorities, Hospital Authorities and Police. With increasing number of residents the paucity of space is happening every time. As against 400 residents we have kitchen and dining hall of the capacity of 100 persons approximately constructed only 8 years ago at Kurali branch. In these 8 years the number of residents has increased by 4 folds, but the space of dining hall did not increase. It is our earnest desire and need also to cook and serve the meals to residents in very hygienic manner. As medicines are important for good health of residents similarly the good, hygienic and nitrous   food is very important for their health.  Due to paucity of space food cannot be cooked and served to inhabitants properly. Some have to take it in dining hall on dining table and other have to take it on ground in Verandas and other places. 

To overcome the difficult of shortage of kitchen & dining space, the Society proposes to construct new spacious kitchen and dining hall to serve the meals at least to 300 residents at a time on dining tables in very hygienic manner. The land has already been purchased by Society for the construction of Langer Hall (kitchen and dining hall) the estimated cost is as under:

Langar Hall Project (Semi furnished Structure)

Exchange rate assumption - 1(USD)=70(INR)

23769 Square feet area, Rs. 1500 cost per square feet

Prabh Aasra is totally dependent on philanthropists to meet it's budgetary requirements. Currently the monthly budget for operational expenses is in excess of USD 45000.00.

    2021 Update

    With the help of Dasvandh network and donors we were able to start a healthcare facility on 22nd Feb. 2021 which is a part of our hospital project. Daily average of outdoor patients at our current hospital is 125. Right now we have few specialists like gynecologist,  psychiatrist, eye specialist, dentist and physiotherapist who are providing their services to needy citizens. We have set up a diagnostic centre and emergency minor OT. Unconditional 24/7 ambulance services are available on site. We have also opened a pharmacy on the premises which is providing a great relief to the people in need. 

    With the blessings of almighty and valuable contributions from sangat we are constantly working on the expansion of the hospital, as it is very important for everyone to have a proper access to affordable health care. Click here to watch short video on our current facility. 


    We salute the Dasvandh Network team for your constant support and contributions towards the welfare missions all over the world.
