Help 'Autowalas' Breathe Fresh Air

Air, actually this pollution is a social good, we consume it equally. Most of us reading this have a choice to be in an enclosed area- be it home, office, or even work from home. But have you wondered what about those who earn their living by staying out?

 A friend of mine spoke to a  cab driver who was taking her from Katwaria Sarai to RK Puram, where, as we all are aware the air quality is terrible. The driver had a fear of going there and when she questioned him if he knew about the consequences of breathing this air and if he had considered buying a mask. He replied by sharing his dilemma of how it costs 350 rupees online and it will be of no use after Sunday. He was aware that it is predicted that this "visible" pollution will get over in another few days.  This conversation left us wondering if he and others who are constantly exposed to this air are even aware of the general pollution levels and how the air quality is severe.

This was with one cab driver who sits with his windows rolled up but what about the security guards, the auto drivers, rickshaw pullers who facilitate us moving from one place to another when we face surge pricing or keep our buildings and homes safe when we decide to sleep with air purifiers or 3M masks on?

I am a student doing my Post- Graduate and have been wondering if anything will be done for this public good to be safe ever again ?The objective of this campaign is to give 200 masks to people who are exposed to bad air quality constantly.

Dear Supporters,

Here is a quick update on the campaign.

The funds collected through Milaap and from my friends will be used to procure 3M, N95 masks from Vasant Kunj tomorrow. Consequently, will organize a drive with my friends to donate masks to people we know who are constantly exposed to the pollution and share an insight as to why they should wear it.

Thank you for your support and love.
Regards
