Welcome to Karuna Jeeva Kalyana Trust (R) – A Social Welfare Voluntary Organization started on 14th of January 2000, in the name of ‘Karuna Daya Seva Samsthe’, under the Chairmanship of Dr. K.L. Nagaraj Shetty, a retired Professor of Medicine from J.J.M. Medical College, Davanagere, Karnataka. A free accommodation was given in his clinic for the organization for about three years. The name of the organization has been changed as Karuna Jeeva kalyana Trust(R) and the office and drug bank have been shifted to the above address recently which is centrally located in the city.

The objectives of the organization are: to serve the poor patients for their medical treatment, to help the poor girl children to continue their education, to collect excess food from marriage choultries and distribute the same to slum dwellers counseling and treatment to poor psychologically disturbed people etc., As a first step, a drug bank was formed by collecting the sample medicines from about 300 practicing doctors which were going waste after expiry date.

A panel of about 35 doctors was formed by requesting each of them to treat two patients daily without any fees. Now the panel consists of about 85 doctors of all discipline. The Patients who approach our office, both from the city and rural areas daily are arranged for free checkup in their respective dines and the prescribed medicines are issued from our drug bank, free of cost and the service is best utilized successfully till this date. Besides the above periodicals,free medical checkup camp and free distribution of medicines campaigns were organized at several places in the city and rural area in the begining. Now the camps are being regularly conducted every month on 2nd Sunday at ‘Rajanahally Seethamma School’,Davangere, with the help of a Sponsor for purchasing additional medicines. The 134th of such camp was held on 8th of December 2013.
