Each of you embody the spirit of compassion and selflessness, and it is our honor to shine a light on your remarkable contributions. Eleven years ago, a vision was born in the heart of Kolkata, igniting a flame of unwavering dedication to the most vulnerable in our society. Sabri Helpage, an NGO with a mission as vast as the compassion it embodies, stands tall as a beacon of hope, providing support, dignity, and love to our seniors through their unparalleled commitment to elderly care. With a fervent dedication to mental health awareness, we break the silence and stigma surrounding mental well-being, offering solace and understanding to countless individuals.”
