Very moving video of the founder helping "untouchables" by feeding, shaving, bathing, hugging. Very obviously sincere love for fellow human beings. Bless Akshaya.

I saw this video and felt so happy knowing there are people in this world that still have a heart and care for the rest of us. I wish the best for Akshaya and all of their volunteers for the priceless work they do.

I came to know about Akshaya through a CNN video where Narayanan Krishnan was brought on as part of some show that honored him for his selfless efforts. It was heartening to see the conviction and guts he has shown to leave the comforts of his own lifestyle behind to venture and do something for the welfare of those that have absolutely nothing, not even food to eat. I continue to support Akshaya in whatever way I can and have also spread the word about it.

I was shocked when I saw the video which inspired this organization.

I think it is a awesome job they are doing and me donating is the least thing I can do. I support this organization.

I first heard about Akshaya USA from a video of the founder, and the charities work on Facebook. I googled the founder to find out more about the charity so I could donate. I was incredible impressed when I received a reply with a thank you for my donation and a proof of payment with tax-deductible information. I gave a small donation, around $50 however, I felt I was being treated as if I was a large donor, respecting my time and donation to an incredible worthy cause.
I am so impressed with the work of this charity that I thought about offering my services as a volunteer in any position, when I finish college in the future. The work of Akshaya keeps hundreds, if not thousands of people from dying from malnutrition and starvation each week. A future donation, scholarship or award, can literally keep hundreds of people from literally dying. I would only suggest one thing, that the charity sends emails reminders, and even "begging letters" to remind us all of their list that more needs to be done and donations are always happily accepted!

Really a Astounding job done by krishnan. He would have been serving clients in switzerland in a 7 star hotel but he chose this path to serve food everyday to people who live in the streets and who are mentally ill. I also like his nature to do the last rites to the persons whose bodies are not claimed by any of the family members. He has been building a2 to 3 buildings to bring all these guys in the road to give them proper shelter, food and good life and he is struggling for it. I actually ask the donors to pass on the message so that he can full fill his dreams. Thank you and hats of to his work.

Inthis day and age where individuals are sellfish and have no time to help their own , It is really wonderful to know that people like Narayanan Krishnan even exist. The basic needs for all life is food and shelter and that he went to great lengths to provide this to people who could not get it is truly inspiring. The least that persons like me can or should do is give a helping hand
May god bless his effort

This organization is working towards fulfilling basic needs of human being for those who are stranded and dejected by society. It has helped to look after those who cannot even look after themselves.

I admired their initiative and relentless efforts put in helping the needy in getting two square meal a day.

Just watched the video and saw what one person can do. Giving his all for others. The greatest of gifts is giving to others. The greatest of Honors belongs to him or her who gives of his wealth and person to the benefit of humanity.

I heard about AKSHAYA Trust in an article written about Narayanan Krishnan's dedicated work towards mentally ill people living on roadside in Madhurai, Tamilnadu, India. I was emotionally moved by his large heart in dedicating completely to help, feed and support these people who can't tale care of themselves. I've been closely following Akshaya Trust activities for couple of years and keep donating money to support theri mission. It is one of the organizations that I will keep donating due to Mr. Mr. Krishnan's dedication, honesty and transparency in the operations.

Thanks

I have been following akshaya organization for a while and I have been quite impressed with what they are able to accomplish with what little they have. To feed 400 to 500 people everyday is not an easy task and yet Mr.krishnan has done this for the past several years without taking a day off.

The basic needs of humans are Food , Shelter and Clothing. Akshaya is doing the best in taking care of these basic needs for the poorest of the poor in India. As a fellow human I felt very sad to see that so many people do not have atleast one meal a day. I found Akshaya as saviour of these poor people. That is the reason why I like Akshaya.
