News and Event Karuna Trust has been fortunate to have had the help and support of several individuals and organizations that have partnered with us, over the past 25 years, and helped with our mission. The following is a partial list of Karuna Trustís collaborators and financial supporters. Dr. H. Sudarshan founded Karuna Trust (KT) in 1986 to respond to the widespread prevalence of leprosy in the Yelandur Taluk of Karnataka.

KT has been singularly successful in addressing this problem and the prevalence of leprosy in Yelandur dropped from 21.4 per 1000 population in 1987 to 0.28 per 1000 in 2005. From leprosy control, KT expanded its mission to address problems of epilepsy, mental health and tuberculosis. Eventually this led to the government of Karnataka asking KT to take over the day-to-day operations of the PHC at Gumballi which is intended to serve the same people that KT was serving.
