Not many people in this world are true humanitarians. And while some, undoubtedly, may be kind at heart, they are not able to translate their compassion and empathy into action, and actively trigger a transformation in the society.
Ravi Melwani is one of those rare true humanitarians – he has helped thousands of poor people, incessantly worked towards bettering the lives of the needy and the abandoned, and has effected a positive change in society.
A very successful entrepreneur, the face and the name behind iconic stores like KidsKemp, Big KidsKemp, Kemp Fort, Ravi Melwani, driven by kindness and compassion, would spend hours with the underprivileged. Unlike others of his stature, he did not delegate his charitable endeavours to his team or employees, but would personally scour the streets of Bangalore, night after night, identifying the poor, distributing food to the hungry and blankets to the homeless. He helped rehabilitate the homeless and many of those who were rescued by him, were able to find employment and went on to live self-dependent lives.
His compassion, however, did not just stop at distributing food or clothes. Ravi Melwani went a step further to set up a free charitable hospital and shelters/homes for the suffering poor and the abandoned. These homes, care for over 600 people, and provide free medical treatment, besides basic necessities and shelter.
Ravi Melwani, needless to say, has made a big difference in the lives of the poor, and inspires others to do the same. His humanitarian vision that calls to mitigate the suffering of the poor is an earnest attempt to make this world a better place.
