The Chanana family has always been involved in philanthropic work. With the founding of CWF, they have given a new direction to their past work. They believe in working towards the upliftment of the weaker sections of the society. The family regularly contributes to Jamghat, a shelter for run away children in Lado Sarai by supplying them with rations and lodging needs. In the past, clothes for children, shoes, socks, toys, books and kitchen equipment have been donated. Dry rations like pulses, rice, spices, flour, toiletries have also been provided to Jamghat.
The Chanana family has donated money to support the ‘Youth for Sport’ programme, an initiative of Youthreach to teach sports to underprivileged children at the DDA Squash and Badminton Stadium.
The ration provided by the Chanana Welfare Foundation has helped the children of Jamghat in an immense manner. Nutritious food has helped them in their growth and development. Children such as Bobby, Naushad, and Roshni would like to thank the foundation for their support.
