Uplift All Foundation by Chinu Mehdi
Chinu is a yoga instructor specially for cancer patients and survivors.
She is a co-founder of the Uplift All Foundation
After a lifetime of working with the poor and the sick, Mother Theresa lamented “the biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of not belonging” Homelessness is a unique issue. It creates invisible walls which separate, ostracize, the homeless from the rest of the society.
At Uplift All, we understand and realize how true it is for the homeless community. Homelessness is a perpetuating cycle and the barriers the homeless face are staggering. The homeless have many needs, but the one most lacking, and perhaps most vital, is the need for human connection, the sense of belonging.
We at Uplift All “don’t do great things but do small things with great love”. We don’t just provide clean clothes; we remove barriers towards integration into the rest of the community. We provide a safe and accepting environment.
