Abode of Love in Mumbai
Snehasadan means abode of love in India. Snehasadan, a non-government organisation in Mumbai, has been providing shelter and home for homeless children for over 50 years.
When we heard one of the current shelters needed some financial assistance in upgrading renovation, Wilhelmsen Ship Management took up the funding request. We have sponsored the upgrading renovation cost for Snehasadan House no.7. The home currently hosts 17 boys in the age group of 6 years to 18 years old. The house has been providing shelter to homeless children since 1967 and is in dire need of upgrading its facilities to a modern home.
Hakon Lenz, COO of Wilhelmsen Ship Management cuts the ribbon to officiate the new beginings of the newly renovated house - Snehasadan House No. 7. Father Wellington, the representative from Snehasadan did a tour around the house for the senior management team of Wilhelmsen Ship Management.
We are happy to see the newly renovated home is now equipped with modern fixtures and facilities in our last visit. We hope the newly renovated home will provide additional comfort for these children and they will continue to flourish in this safe and fun space.

There is a child in all of us! Over the last few months, we have hosted a few fun games and activities with the children in Snehasadan House No.7, giving us the opportunity to unleash our inner child. We hope to continue giving the children our time to help them in building their confidence and social skills.
Through play, children learn about the world and themselves. Our Global Procurement team held their teambuilding day together with the children packed with fun games and activities.

The first Snehasadan home was set up in Andheri (North of Mumbai) in 1962. Today, Snehasadan has 12 houses, a home for women and children in distress and two contact centres at railway stations which act as centres for welfare staff to work directly with the vulnerable children that dwell there. There’s also a crises centre for girls who have been rescued from human trafficking.
