Animals are dying at Navi Mumbai Airport Site! Help us feed them!

Requesting you to take 2 mins of your time to read this!

If you haven't heard already, construction of Navi Mumbai International Airport has begun at Panvel.

This land, used to be collection of villages, which have now been abandoned and flattened for the construction. The villagers left tonnes of rubble and over 400 animals behind. These animals, once dependent on the villagers for food and water, are now walking miles to find nothing but mud, rocks and dust.

The site preparation involves breaking down hillocks and boulders and levelling the ground. Furthermore, the construction equipment, destruction of water bodies and constant movement of rocks and earth have injured many animals.

Two beautiful souls - Varsha Pillai and Pooja Teli (both in their mid 50s) have taken it upon themselves to keep these animals safe. Every day, they make their way to the site, walk through barren land and pick up stray dogs and cats who are often famished or injured. They feed these animals each and everyday. They also carry water to fill up the water bowls placed at the site. The total expenses for feeding and transport exceeds Rs 4000 per day!
It is the responsibility of the Government Body and the Contractors of this project to rehabilitate these animals. We are appealing CIDCO to build a Shelter for the animals affected by this project. However, the battle is long and a mammoth task.

A group of us have now come together to feed, sterlise and rehabilitate these dogs. We are also arranging an adoption camp for the pups.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your love. As monsoons have hit Mumbai, the situation at the site has become worse. There is no place for Animals to hide in rains. We are currently speaking to CIDCO to build 10 temporary sheds at the site for the animals to hide. We are increasing the appeal amount to 8,00,000 for the same.
