From all the donations collected from Satyamev Jayate, NGO Snehalaya has managed to build a shelter in Ahmednagar
Last year, when Satyamev Jayate went on air on May 6, Aamir Khan had requested the viewers to send in donations in the name of Snehalaya foundation. And by the end of the first season of this talk show on Star Plus, the NGO had managed to collect approximately Rs 1.13 crores. This money was used to build a shelter for helpless women, children and rape victims in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra.
The inauguration of Satyamev Jayate Bhawan – duly named after the talk-show – witnessed a heartwarming performance by music composer Ram Sampath. “Aamir wanted to attend the launch. So he specially took time out for it,” a birdie revealed. Mr Perfectionist, just back from his trip to Thailand with wife Kiran Rao, managed to squeeze in time for the Bhawan’s launch before he resumed work on Dhoom:3.
“This centre will provide women with food and shelter and eventually rehabilitate them,” a feathered friend said in an interview. And Aamir Khan’s spokesperson said that the actor was touched to receive so much love from kids at the Bhawan.
Kudos to Aamir Khan, his team of Satyamev Jayate and NGO Snehalaya for taking up such a noble cause.
