‘Asha’ means Hope in hindi and ‘Daan’ means Charity. Ashadaan is a charitable organization run by Missionaries of Charity, founded by Mother Teresa.
Tucked away in the historic bylanes of Byculla, this charitable organization is a home to 400 residents from all religions.
This was mentioned at the Entrance of Ashadaan
“Welcome to Asha Daan. Dear visitors and friends, we cherish you spending your time with us. Do not just hand down to us eatables, our appetite for lunch may be ruined. Give whatever you brought for us to the person in charge. And God bless you. We thank you for not taking photos, but you probably leave with our imprint in your heart. Do not show us pity, we are happy. If you doubt, then just ask us “Kaise hai?” and what you will hear will cheer you. Then, if you have come as a visitor, you will leave as a friend. Please come again. We love to keep in touch.”
On September 18th, 2018, Thanks to Missionaries of Charity, Our team at Aanvii Hearing were proud to be a part in an effort to serve Humanity. We successfully conducted Pure Tone Audiometry for 50+ Members of the Ashadaan Community in a single day, helping the individuals of this community to detect Hearing Issues successfully.
