    There have always been large hearted individuals who thought of themselves as Trustees of their wealth and wanted to set apart them for the welfare of the needy and deserving Late Mr Mathew J Kollamparambil of Thalayolapaarambu in Kottayam District, Kerala has been such a noble man who willed that a substantial portion of his valuable assets be utilized for religious and charitable purposes.
