The KarunaKare Foundation is committed to helping everyone in need, like family. The foundation’s volunteers help people to connect with each other while also offering complete support along the route.
KarunaKare volunteers believe in caring for every individual connected to them and not treating them in a cluster. They place a greater emphasis on holistic wellness rather than only helping with money or one sort of aid.

Palliative Care is a type of specialist medical and holistic care that aims to relieve patients’ pain and other symptoms during their last days.
Everyone in need can access a Palliative Care Vehicle provided by the organization, which has a doctor on call for pain management. The volunteers routinely visit our patients and their families to deliver food, medications, tiffin services for low-income families etc, under Palliative Care.
