The Hind Group has a long history of philanthropy and support for charitable causes.
To take this commitment to a higher level, we are setting up the S.S. Jhunjhnuwala Foundation, which will focus firstly and primarily on education and welfare initiatives for underprivileged children, and secondly on health-related issues, particularly research on diabetes and heart conditions. The Group already offers day-to-day support for charitable organisations such as Mother’s Choice in Hong Kong and the Children’s Cancer Foundation in Singapore. Full lists of these charities are available on request.
The Hind Group also supports the Phooladevi All Girls School, named after one of our relatives, in our ancestral home of Bhiwani, Rajasthan. It was the aim of our family patriarch, S.S. Jhunjhnuwala, that all girls should have an equal opportunity to receive a good education. This was one of the first all-girls schools in the state of Rajasthan. The Hind Group wishes to support similar projects in other villages, towns and cities in India.
We have established the S.S. Jhunjhnuwala Diabetes Research Centre for the internationally recognised Madras Diabetes Research Foundation in southern India. The Centre focuses on supporting and encouraging pioneering research in the field of diabetes in India. The Hind Group also supports the Naravan Sewa Sansthan in Udaipur, Rajasthan by helping to organise surgical polio camps and the surgeries associated with these endeavours.
The Hind Group also holds various charitable events to help communities affected by disasters. Many of our hotel properties, for example, donate their sales for a day to help feed and support disaster victims. Every winter, the Group distributes blankets to areas in northern India affected by severe cold weather.
