Mumbai's COVID Hero - Forever Memorialised Through the Power of Art


Six months of living with the coronavirus pandemic has seen the situation steadily deteriorate. And nowhere has its impact been worse than in India. Millions across the nation have been left in dire straits, unable to provide for themselves and their families. Acts of humanity has been of some solace though. And for many, that call has been answered by philanthropist and businessman Mauris Norohna.

Mumbai-resident Mauris Noronha, had plans to migrate to the USA. Infact, he had even started the process of migration. However, since early March, he has devoted himself to caring for those unable to care for themselves, thereby postponing the plan. Inspired by the example of Mother Teresa and her devotion to the poor, Mauris has helped more than 7 lakh people in the city and across the state.




Working with a team of volunteers, he personally delivers essential rations, medical supplies, and protective equipment across the length and breadth of Mumbai. He has relied entirely on his own savings and donations from individuals, even forsaking his own house loan, that he was planning to clear all in totality. Furthermore, he has also bought a fully equipped ambulance that can be used by citizens in case of an emergency.
