History

Manjari Sankurathri Memorial Foundation (MSMF) was incorporated in Canada in 1989 by Dr. Chandrasekhar Sankurathri, Dr. Sarma Vishnubhatla, and Mr. Sushil Chari to remember, Manjari, wife of Dr. Sankurathri, their son Srikiran, and daughter Sarada, who were killed in the bombing of the Air India Flight 182, from Montreal, Canada, to London, England, over Ireland on June 23, 1985.

Since its inception MSMF has financially supported, Education, Health Care, and Disaster Relief programs started by Sankurathi Foundation, a Family Trust, which was created in India by Dr. Sankurathri with other family members.

In the 30 years of its long history, MSMF has been managed by many individuals on its Board. Below, is a list to acknowledge their contribution (those who are currently on the Board are in the Governance section):
