About us

Kutch Mandvi was an important port in the past. But due to development of Kandla and Mundra Port the gloriousness of Mandvi had diminished. However, Mandvi is Taluka and it has many villages connected for trade and commerce. In the area of healthcare though there are two charitable hospitals at Bidada and Bhojay, Mandvi caters to local populations in the vicinity as well as to the villages of Mandvi, Abadasa and Mundra taluka. Mandvi has approximately 40 Private doctor and 5 Private hospitals. Most of the private hospitals are not fully equipped with modern facilities i.e.

(1) Dialysis
(2) Digital X-Ray
(3) C.T. Scan facilities
(4) Ultra modern Pathological lab
(5) Telemedicine facility
(6) ICU facility
(7) Trauma Center etc.

PujyaAcharyaShriChandanaji, the founder of Veerayatan, fondly known as Tai Ma, is the first Jain Sadhvi to receive the title of Acharya in the Jain tradition. Veerayatan, an international charitable organization, was established by Tai Ma in 1973 with objectives to support and empower people though quality education and selfless service.

PujyaSadhviShriShilapijiMaharaj - a dynamic and inspiring leader - appeals to people from every faith and all walks of life. With an M.Phil in Comparative Religion from the University of London, SadhviShilapiji- an ardent disciple of PujyaAcharyaShriChandanaji- is the first Sadhvi in Jain tradition to have pursued overseas education.

A grand canvas of her dedication is embodied in VeerayatanVidyapeeth, Kutch, Gujarat - a massive relief and rehabilitation project which stands tall today as a beacon of hope, creating numerous opportunities for the educational and professional development of the rural population. She has kind of changed the education scenario of Kutch.

Dr.Kaushik Shah who is surgeon by profession and has established his creditability in the Limca Book of Records by performing 58 Hernia operation in record time, is highly inspired by PujyaSadhviShriShilapiji and is fortunate to receive the special blessings of PujyaAcharyaShriChnadanaji. Inspired by the work and mission of AcharyaShrijiof helping people without a distinction of cast, creed , race and religion, few services minded people came together to meet the demands of public in this region and formed TAI FOUNDATION in the name of Tai Ma, widely known as AcharyaShriChandanaji as and registered the same with motto of providing best modern health care at a nominal charge.
