In this tumultuous world, the imperative for individuals to emerge as philanthropists and humanitarians cannot be overstated. The cacophony of strife and suffering echoes through every corner of our globe, leaving countless souls adrift in the maelstrom of adversity. It is incumbent upon those blessed with the means and compassion to step forth as beacons of hope. Their munificence becomes a lifeline, weaving threads of solace and salvation into the fabric of humanity. In the crucible of chaos, these altruistic souls manifest the very essence of our shared humanity, extending a benevolent hand to elevate the destitute and heal the wounded, illuminating a path towards a more compassionate and harmonious world.
In a world increasingly marked by selfishness and the pursuit of personal gain, there are individuals who stand as shining examples of selflessness and compassion. Jas Kalra, a 23-year-old philanthropist, is one such remarkable individual whose unwavering dedication to humanity has left an indelible mark on society.
The Earth Saviours Foundation:- A Sanctuary of Hope
At the helm of The Earth Saviours Foundation (T.E.S.F.), a renowned N.G.O. founded by the Late Ravi Kalra, Jas Kalra has taken on the role of the youngest non-priest and the incumbent President. Established in 2008, T.E.S.F. has garnered international acclaim for its mission to combat social ills, provide sanctuary to mistreated animals, and champion environmental protection.
The heart of T.E.S.F. beats with the tireless efforts of a selfless and committed team of volunteers, working relentlessly to uplift the underprivileged in society. Their shelters in Bandhwari Village and Mandawar Village, Gurugram, have become sanctuaries for abandoned senior citizens, mentally disabled individuals, abused women, burn victims, survivors of domestic violence, and those afflicted by incurable diseases.
T.E.S.F.:- A Haven of Compassion
These shelter homes offer a lifeline to those in dire need, providing essential services such as accommodation, counseling, food, medical care, and daily necessities, all free of charge. The ultimate goal is not just to provide temporary refuge but to rehabilitate residents and reunite them with their families whenever possible.
Currently, T.E.S.F. operates through two shelters, each serving as a beacon of hope. The Bandhwari Gurukul, spanning nearly 2 acres, encompasses an old-age home, a medical center, a home for deprived women, an animal shelter, and a center for the differently-abled. It’s a diverse community where senior citizens, mentally disabled individuals, and bedridden citizens coexist with numerous animals, creating a nurturing atmosphere.
The Legacy that Ignited His Compassion
Jas Kalra’s unwavering dedication to humanitarian causes can be traced back to the profound influence of his father, Karmayogi Sh. Ravi Kalra Ji. His father’s tireless efforts and unwavering commitment to selfless service left an indelible mark on Jas, instilling in him a deep sense of purpose and compassion. From a young age, Jas witnessed the transformative power of empathy and the fulfillment that comes from extending a helping hand to those in need. He was never swayed by the allure of materialistic happiness; instead, he was driven by the desire to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the less fortunate. This emotional connection to his father’s legacy became the driving force behind Jas Kalra’s decision to carry forward the torch of compassion and continue the noble work of The Earth Saviours Foundation.
The Earth Saviours Foundation:- Pillar of Hope
The Earth Saviours Foundation goes above and beyond by providing the last rites for unidentified bodies, a service that demonstrates their unwavering commitment to human dignity.
The legacy of T.E.S.F., instilled by its founder, Ravi Kalra, extends beyond shelter and care. It encompasses values of women’s empowerment, environmental conservation, respect for the elderly, and the inclusion of the mentally and physically disabled as equal members of society. The foundation’s efforts have transformed countless lives, offering solace to both families and animals in their journey toward rebuilding.
The Shining Future
Currently, T.E.S.F. boasts 100-150 dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly around the clock to serve over 950 individuals. Under the guidance of Jas Kalra’s father, Karmayogi Sh. Ravi Kalra Ji, the ashram, has been a source of immeasurable joy since its inception in 2008.
Looking ahead, T.E.S.F.’s Bandhwari Sewa Dham branch and Mandawar Sewa Dham are poised to shelter over 1,000 people, with plans to expand Mandawar’s capacity to accommodate 5,000 individuals.
Wide Recognition and Honor
Jas Kalra’s unwavering dedication and selfless service have not gone unnoticed. He was honored and felicitated by the Chief Minister of Haryana for his exceptional contributions to humanity. His remarkable achievement of cremating more than 2,000 unclaimed and unidentified bodies in just 2.5 years stands as a testament to his compassion and commitment.
