Who We Are

Who we are

Established in 1999, SEAL is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the mission of rescuing destitute and missing children from the railway platforms and streets of Mumbai.

Countless people arrive in this city of dreams to chase their aspirations. While we often hear of the great success stories, there have been the unfortunate many who have been left helpless and homeless, wandering in the streets of this unforgiving city.

SEAL rescues the young and old, men and women, the sick, lost and forsaken, and provides them with another shot at life! Along with providing food, shelter, clothing, health-care and education at our Ashram, we strive to trace their families back home, and reunite the lost.

Presently, our humble shelter is a home to 224 underprivileged people, mainly HIV and Tuberculosis patients, mentally challenged, handicapped, visually impaired and fully orphaned, all of whom now have a re-kindled hope of leading a purposeful life.

So far, SEAL has reunited 275 residents back to their long awaiting families across India; or else they might have been thrown into oblivion forever. Most of them were vagabonds and missing from home for long periods of time.

Above all, SEAL is proud that it could provide a peaceful and merciful death bed to another 272 dear ones found on the streets of Mumbai and elsewhere, stricken with terminally ill diseases or abandoned to die in pathetic conditions. SEAL carried out the burial/ funeral rites of these unfortunate souls and ensured that they get a dignified farewell.

Today, SEAL is a major referral point for nearly 20 NGOs, Mumbai and Navi Mumbai Police, Medical Colleges, Hospitals and well wishers.

SEAL has no Government aid or permanent supporters from India or abroad. We continue to work with individual donations from the public.
