Mercy Cops is a non-profit, non-sectarian, non-religious, charitable trust formed on 15th August 2012 at Poothole, Thrissur district, Kerala and registered under the Indian Trusts Act, 1882 (Reg. No.325/IV/2014). It was set up in order to tackle the problems of poverty in Kerala. From its humble origin as a unity of 4 contributors focused to help the people suffering from serious illnesses, it has grown rapidly, and now its projects cover a wide range of activities located in throughout Kerala. The Trust is committed to the welfare of people from the most underprivileged strata of society without distinction of caste, color or politics. Its emphasis is on helping the deserved people, who need a support to help them to join mainstream society.We gave our hands of help to the helpless, illiterate, homeless, sick, elderly, mentally ill and destitutes in Kerala, India by providing financial assistance, new home, good education, and opportunity to rehabilitate in order to restore human dignity. Our mission was launched on the auspicious day of Independence, 2012 by giving Rs.1,000/- to one Mohanan who was struggling for his life at the Government Hospital, Thrissur following chronic diabetics. Initial progress was slow, but in a short span of 6 years the Trust reached a membership from 4 to 5060 and monthly contribution from Rs.1000/- to Rs.5,06,000/-. So far we have given more than 1 crore to around 509 beneficiaries. We find our source of income by contributing Rs. 100/- every month by our contributors. Monthly contribution is strictly restricted to Rs. 100/-. We never accept any amount more or less than Rs.100/- from a contributor so that even an ordinary person can also be a contributor with equal status.Another important feature of our activity is "charity without publicity". We are not giving any publicity to our activities by means through visual, print or Social Medias. When we established an office for our Trust on 01-01-2016 at Thrissur, the dawn of 01-01-2017 was marked by the construction of a new home to Kum. Reshma and Kum. Revathy, they have no parents and shelter. The total expense for the house was around 8 lakhs. The activities of the Trust are fully transparent and doing all the financial transactions through bank only. Presently, Trust has Current Accounts in SBI, SBT, Canara, Federal,South Indian,HDFC,Union and Syndicate Banks which receives monthly contributions of Rs.100/- from each of the contributors by giving Standing Instructions. The monthly activities of the Trust have been informed to all the members via SMS to their mobile phone or they can absorb the details from the official website of the Trust, 'www.mercycops.com'. Eighty percentages of our contributors are police officers and rests are employees of other department or their relatives. Our trust also intends to create a group of people who are ready to serve poor people empathetically. We plan to develop our Trust to a much better level by attracting more and extending our service to many other fields of charity.
During a short span of 5 years, a gradual and miraculous growth has been achieved from 4 to 5400 contributors
