Perseverance and Perspective
For several families left struggling for daily essentials during the lockdown, those like Premal Parekh are a ray of hope. The 50-year-old businessman not only distributed ration among many of these households, but also provided stationery kits to school students and financial help to those in need. In fact, Parekh, who started his philanthropic work 30 years ago, has been at the forefront in extending help to families on a long-term basis. He supports about 30 families through donations, including ration kits to 75 families every month.
From Humble Beginnings to Greatness
Even though Mr. Parekh comes from humble beginnings; he is a great example of a hard-working businessman who paved his own path in this competitive world.
Deeply passionate about helping children in need live happier, healthier lives, Mr. Parekh founded Arpan, Towards Freedom from Sexual Abuse as a registered charitable foundation. I realised that extending one-time support to any family gives them temporary relief. But if I support even one family for a longer period of time, it can bring about a vast change in their lives, said Parekh.
