Tribute to Mr. Venkatesan

“I won't be far away, for life goes on. Just listen with your heart and you'll hear my love all around you.”

This is how we at MOHAN Foundation remember Mr. T N Venkatesan, who left this world on September 10, 2022.

Mr. Venkatesan was a philanthropist and a visionary. When his own daughter, our very own Jaya Jairam, underwent a kidney transplant in the year 2010, he realized the need for supporting the underprivileged so that they may have access to such life-saving treatment. His initial grant to MOHAN Foundation saw the genesis of “Anudaan – Making Transplants Affordable” ( – a very special initiative that directly impacts lives by enable lifesaving transplants for poor people. His support strengthened our belief and gave us confidence to reach out to other philanthropists and build on this initiative. He continued to contribute towards Anudaan right till the very end, saving many lives specially those of children.

Mr. Venkatesan – you will be missed and we promise to continue to honour your legacy by continuing to support lifesaving transplants for those who cannot afford them.

“May the roads rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back, may the sunshine warm your face,
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.”
