Sushil, Roopesh and Anand Jhaveri, the three sons of Surekhaben and Manubhai Surajmal Jhaveri have made a donation of Rs 1.25 crore to the Vidyamandir Trust. This amount will be used to upgrade and develop the Shri Manubhai Surajmal Jhaveri – Surekhaben (Crown TV) Campus opposite Shashivan in Palanpur.

The campus houses three Gujarati Medium Balmandirs that cater to 360 small children, as well as Std I and II of two Gujarati Medium Primary Schools with 370 students. It functions under the aegis of Early Childhood Education (Gujarati Medium) for children aged 3 to 7 years, and besides regular coaching classes, also offers a resource room, multi-media room and art room, and a well-equipped playground, a Toy House and a Dolls House. Many cultural programmes for the students and seminars for teachers are also held here.

New campus at Vidyamandir

The blessing ceremony of the campus will be held along with the next major function at Vidyamandir.

Also, recently an entire ward of the Jain Clinic & Hospital (now Conwest Jain Hospital) at Kandawadi in Mumbai has been renovated and renamed Smt Surekhaben Manubhai Surajmal Jhaveri Family (Crown TV) with the aid of a generous donation of Rs 51 lakh by Sushil, Roopesh and Anand Jhaveri. The donation is being used to upgrade equipment at the hospital for eye care and dialysis.

The hospital was established on April 19, 1948 following an inspiring speech given by Mahasatiji UjjvalKumarji. It was recognised by Department of Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR) in 1982, and currently offers treatment to people of all castes and communities with facilities such as OPD, ICU, High Dependency Units, Eye Care & Dialysis Unit.

Renovated Ward at Jain Hospital

The funds were handed over to the hospital authorities at a small, private gathering recently. The family members have said that they can now offer free or subsidised treatment at the hospital to a limited number of persons. Community members in need of such facilities for themselves or their staff have been requested to contact the family.

While both these projects have been made possible through individual, personal contributions from the three families, they also have the Jhaveri Charitable Trust which runs the 108-room Jain Dharamshala at Hastinapur.
