I am writing to ask for your support. This relief Campaign is being run by Abu Sufiyan, a friend of my family, through his organisation Purani Dilli Walo Ki Baatein in association with Delhi Youth Welfare Association and a dedicated group of volunteers. All expenditure and list of beneficiaries will be posted transparently.
The funds are currently being used for the following purposes in Delhi and the National Capital Region:
- Oxygen cylinders
- Oxygen concentrators

- Food for the homeless
If you have any questions about this campaign, please feel free to reach out directly to me (Abhijai Garg - email@example.com) or to the organisers of the campaign (Instagram: @puranidilliwaley, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Every little contribution will make a huge difference and can save a life.
More details on the organisation and their work below.
Keeping track of beneficiaries
The team are maintaining a record of each beneficiary with all the necessary details, to ensure that the help has reached the right person.
Each beneficiary is being asked to fill out a declaration form along with their AADHAR card (national ID) to ensure that the aid is not directed to a single person or a single group of people. Check out the images on their social media pages for daily updates of your donations. (Instagram: @puranidilliwaley)

The organisation is lead by Abu Sufiyan who's an engineer, entrepreneur and community leader who have got a track record of leading the community through crisis.

All the financial management and transparency will be managed by Delhi Youth Welfare Association. DYWA was born in December 1990. The team scrutinized all the hindrances that were accountable for the low standard of education in the walled city and started working on eradication of such deterrents for students.
The fundamental aim of this organization is to improve the educational values/standards of the historical walled city. It is engaged in the promotion of the education and social development and upliftment of the people belonging to the lower-income group, irrespective of any sex, creed, religion, caste or class.
DYWA takes several sincere steps to sensitize and enlighten the masses towards the significance of education not only to equip the underprivileged sections of the society but also to provide the wings to unleash all their shackles. Our association has adopted 15 children and has financed their studies completely so that financial crunches cannot hamper their aspirations to achieve their goals in life. As a part of its customary practice, DYWA distributes free course material, provides coaching and educational assistance, facilitates the students to opt for the best career option by providing career counselling sessions and also provides constant motivation and encouragement to the children.
