PASTOR K.M. PHILIP (PRESIDENT & DIRECTOR)
Pastor K.M. Philip is the founder of SEAL Ashram. He was born to the world for the upliftment of the fellow needy one.
After his schooling, he joined the Seminary in Kerala where he graduated in Bachelor of Theology under Serampur University, Calcutta. Prior to his Seminary Studies, he had ventured his potential as a Teacher in the North Eastern State of Mizoram for two years. Wherever he studied, he was always ready to extend himself selflessly to the service of mankind.
At many occasions even before starting the SEAL Ashram he had extended his hand of help to individuals and institutions by donating blood, by conducting medical camps and seminars. At certain times, he also gathered a group of youngsters and started to physically repair the roads of Kerala.
The turning point in his life came after an incident he encountered in 1989 while traveling from Kerala to Mizoram. He saw a man covered with mud and almost naked at a railway station. The man was fighting with street dogs to find a piece of bread from the dustbin. Pr. Philip was so deeply moved, that he wished, one day he could be of some help to people like these.
Eight years later, in the year 1997, Philip was on a visit to Mumbai. The scene of the Mumbai streets, filled with sick, vagabond and destitute people, brought tears to his eyes and he thought of rending a helping hand to these hapless people. In November 15, 1999 he started SEAL Ashram, a registered charitable trust, taking a 9 month old HIV baby boy into its care. Since then, SEAL Ashram has rescued and rehabilitated hundreds of persons who would otherwise have been left to die on the streets of Mumbai.
Pr. Philip is currently actively involved in the operations of the Trust.
