Save Lives of 5000 Daily Wage Earners From Air Pollution In Delhi-NCR

Save Lives of 5000 Daily-Wage Earners From Air-Pollution In Delhi-NCR

The capital city of India- Delhi is inhabited by 22 Million people. The air quality of the capital has hit an all time low and is a threat to its residents. The city recorded Air-Quality Index (AQI) of 999- the equivalent of smoking 45 cigarettes a day (moderate AQI is 51-100). 999 is the maximum recording capacity which means actual level might be even higher. Civic authorities have issued warning comparing the situation in Delhi with that of ‘Gas Chamber’.

According to a report by WHO, in 2012 around 7 million people died: 1 in 8 of total global deaths: as a result of air-pollution exposure. This is expected to be the highest in Delhi, as at the moment it is the most polluted city in the world.

The Government of Delhi has issued a statement advising people to stay indoors. Schools have been shut and immediate steps are taken to control the air-pollution level. Doctors have recommended to wear anti-pollution masks at all time.

The worst hit by this situation are poor, under-privileged and laborers, who spend most of their time on streets to earn their livelihood. Unfortunately, they can't afford the only precaution (i.e. the anti-pollution mask) with their limited resources.

How Can You Help:
Delhi pollution, Air pollution, mask

Biggest gift is gift of life.

We are on a mission to provide anti-pollution masks to 5000 under-privileged people in Delhi-NCR which includes home-less, laborers, rickshaw-pullers, watch-men, residents of old-age homes and orphanages.

A good quality N-95 mask which retails for INR 100 is available at INR 35 in bulk orders. We aim to raise INR 175,000 to save 5000 lives from this life-threatening situation in Delhi-NCR.

  • Help us by donating money for the masks
  • Donate N-95 or N-99 masks to us directly 
  • Connect us with dealers who are providing these masks for less than INR 35
  • Spread awareness about the campaign and situation in Delhi-NCR
  • Join us in our mask distribution drives

    Remember, no contribution is small as even the smallest droplets eventually fill the jar.

Dear Supporters,

Many rickshaw-pullers, auto-drivers, sweepers, tailors, house-helps, press-wale, rag-pickers, security-personnel, watchmen, cobblers, gardeners, construction-site workers, and their children are wearing anti-pollution masks now. All thanks to those who have supported this campaign by contributions, mask donations, or volunteering for awareness-drives.

Reshma ji, who works as a sweeper in North-West Delhi, shares this while receiving her mask- "We can't stop working no matter what the situation is. I go out early in the morning to sweep, even if it is difficult to breathe. This mask will keep me safe." (Translated)
Many people are receiving masks through this campaign to help them breathe safely while they work. We would be able to cover more and more areas in Delhi based on your support. Please support this cause by either donating to us or by directly donating the masks to those in need. Please do share this campaign further with your friends and family.

Thank you for the support.
