Home Is Where the Heart Is

Akshaya Home was inaugurated on May 9th , 2013. The home has dormitories, a kitchen and dining, an administrative block, medical care facilities and staff to take care of the mentally disabled and the senior homeless. Phase I of the Akshaya home  houses nearly 450 residents. Having run out of space in just 6 months since the inauguration, Akshaya and Krishnan have now embarked on the construction of the second phase of the Akshaya Home.

To complete the second phase of the Akshaya home, Akshaya needs the help of all our supporters.

Akshaya's Mission

Committed to the care of the helpless, forsaken, mentally ill, old, sick, roadside destitute living and dying on the streets of Madurai by providing healthy food, love, and opportunity to rehabilitate, thereby restoring human dignity.

A Worthy Cause

Akshaya's Helping in H.E.L.P. Trust was established as a charitable organization supporting the needy in Madurai, India in 2002.

Utilizing his own personal savings, Narayanan Krishnan fed around 30 people. In 2003, he began to serve feshly-cooked meals, and has since served over 1.7 million meals as of August 2011.

Expanding the visibility to a much larger audience, in 2010, Akshaya USA was founded to support Akshaya's Helping in H.E.L.P. Trust. In addition to supporting the feeding of the hungry and starving on the streets of Madurai, Akshaya USA gives support to people with a variety of needs, such as the sick, mentally ill, helpless homeless, elderly, disabled, victims of rape or violence, those filthy or in need of medical care and those deserted by families or left dying on the street.
