The DVK foundation was founded by Deepak Kuntawala, a survivor, a victim and a hero of the Mumbai terror attacks. The first hand horror of the terrorist attacks which Dee Kay experienced were life changing, and as a result led to the creation of DVK Foundation.
DVK Foundation has been formed for victims of terror all over the world to aid them in whatever they may need to make their lives easier after being touched by any attack anywhere around the world. From the moment disaster strikes through to the years following, The DVK Foundation aims to bring support and help to all involved.
