Dr. Madhuri Bharadwaj is an Indian social worker who founded the Maa Madhuri Brij Varis Sewa Sadan, Apna Ghar along with her husband, Dr. Brij Mohan Bhardwaj. Today, this home for the homeless has 21 ashrams across India, and it serves more than 4000 people. The couple has dedicated their whole lives to serving the sick and homeless.
Madhuri Bharadwaj was born on Friday, 29 June 1973 (age 46 Years; as in 2019) in a village in the Aligarh District of Uttar Pradesh. Her hometown is Agra. After her schooling, she went on to pursue BAMS in Aligarh.
Husband: A partner who shared her dream
She met her future husband, Dr. Brij Mohan Bharadwaj when she was studying in the 9th standard in Aligarh. At that time, Brij Mohan Bharadwaj was studying in a college in Aligarh. Madhuri and Mohan both used to travel on a bus to attend school and college, respectively. In the bus, they would discuss a topic unusual for two teenagers. They would talk about their shared dream; a meaningful life, dedicated to helping those in need. In Madhuri, Mohan found an echo of his own mission. Mohan and Madhuri planned to be partners in this venture. Eight years after their meeting, they decided to become life partners and got married on 8 December 1993. However, they decided to never have their own children; as they wanted to invest their all energy on the sick and homeless. They both became doctors and started bringing the abandoned sick people from the streets into their homes.
Apna Ghar: A roof for the homeless and destitute
After seven years of their marriage, Dr. Brij Mohan Bhardwaj and Dr. Madhuri Bharadwaj established ‘Maa Madhuri Brij Varis Sewa Sadan, Apna Ghar’ on 29 June 2000, on Madhuri’s 27th birthday in Bharatpur, Rajasthan. Apna Ghar went on to become a home for the homeless and the destitute, the sick and the lost ones who are found wandering in public spaces. Today, there are 21 ashrams across India– Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Delhi, which provide shelter to sickly and homeless people. The volunteers of Apna Ghar Sewa Samitis have set up Apna Ghar helplines, which provide immediate services to the homeless and the destitute. More than 30 ambulances work day and night to carry them to ashrams for relief.
Funding & Expenditure
Although most of the ashrams run on public support, ashrams in Kota and Ajmer are partially supported by the Government of Rajasthan. Every ashram displays a board outside of it; mentioning the daily needs of ashrams, and these are more often than not met by visitors’ donations. The organization often runs crowdfunding campaigns to raise costs.
In Popular Media
The noble work of this doctor couple has been acknowledged both by the government and the general public. Many media houses have covered their stories on their respective platforms. On 25 October 2019, Dr. Brij Mohan Bhardwaj and Dr. Madhuri Bharadwaj appeared on a special show called ‘Karamveer’ of the popular Indian game show, Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC).
