Janaseva Foundation began modestly by organizing health camps in rural parts of Maharashtra but soon set up a rural hospital and an oldage home. Over the years, the Foundation rapidly expanded its activities and has to its credit today a wide range of charitable projects.
Dr. Vinod Shah, M.D., renowned gastroenterologist, associated with many prominent hospitals in the city is the founder-chairman of the Janaseva Foundation. A highly accomplished physician and teacher of medicine, he has also been invited by the Governor of Maharashtra to be his Honorary Physician. The professional success however did not blind Dr. Shah to the misery and agony of India’s poor, sick and the powerless. The overpowering inner urge to be of service to people who needed it most got the better of him and he founded the Janaseva Foundation on 15th January 1988.The foundation started functioning from January 1990.
