It was an official trip for me to Hamburg from Bangalore, India but I had already on my agenda a short personal backpack tour to Paris and Vienna besides sightseeing in Hamburg of course.
SOCARE, Society’s care for Indigents is home for 70 odd kids coming from different backgrounds. Background- some dark, some grave.
SOCARE took birth in the mind of Mr. V Mani during his days as a banker at RBI. He used to pass the central jail on his way to the office and often was left wondering while looking at the waiting mothers and kids of convicts, the life of these kids. Post retirement, Mani decided to invest all his savings and retirement benefits to start SOCARE. Mani along with his wife Mrs. Saroji Mani lovingly extended the comforts of their home to indigents, by turning their home into a hostel.
