Hyderabad: More than 1800 mass weddings of orphans have been conducted so far by Humane Touch Trust. Humane Touch Trust is a private non-government organization located in Bangalore, Karnataka. The organization has been conducting mass weddings since 2003.
The secretary of Humane Touch Trust Tazaiyun Omer said “The girls and boys come from a very backward and poor community and their mothers find it hard to arrange their marriage, so we step in and arrange their marriage and provide all essentials to couple which helps them to start their life easily. The cost of one marriage is Rs 65,000. I don’t organise an extravagant wedding rather, I save that money and help those who find it financially difficult to get married” she added.

They provide the trousseau for the bride with the articles necessary to start a new home.
