The FundaKohli Foundation celebrates 5 years in the country. In this period, it has invested over $400,000 USD, providing monthly aid to hundreds of families in need.
The School of Rehabilitation has been one of the institutes benefited from the foundation. It has received solar panels which are necessary for the swimming pool to function adequately, allowing it to be used for hydrotherapy. “Our institution wants to improve the quality of life of many students and families, and for this reason, the parents, students and teachers are grateful for all the help provided,” stated Dr. Gilberto Cascante, Director of the School of Rehabilitation.
Other beneficiaries include over 225 children and teenagers from the city of Los Guido, in Desamparados, who receive the necessary meals, allowing the children to have a much healthier lifestyle. They also receive other basic cleaning and personal use supplies. “These benefits are of great relevance due to the socioeconomic conditions of most families in the community. Unemployment and poverty make many families turn to the Children’s Diner while searching for daily subsidy for their children,” stated Father R.P. Reyner, Parrish Priest of Los Guidos”.
With the available resources of its founder, Tej Kohli, the foundation places great part of its efforts in philanthropic projects, which include rural health and educational opportunities, among others. Moreover, the foundation is working to improve the quality of life of citizens by struggling against malnutrition and giving special aid to the handicapped.
“We carefully chose the areas of action where we can satisfy basic needs of the families and make a difference. Each year, we strive to broaden the capacity of the foundation to include more people," stated Tej Kohli.
His efforts for the following years are focused on people and families that are most vulnerable, and the belief that they deserve the opportunity to improve their lives. With this purpose, FundaKohli will work with similar organizations and public organizations, as well as with the communities and beneficiaries directly. Kohli plans to invest $2,000,000 USD over the course of the next 5 years in his continued efforts to improve the quality of life for children and families in need.
