Serving food to pilgrims on road by Sankalp member

Friends, to run "Sankalp Camp" we need a lot of money. Which is "Sankalp member" has been fulfilling it for past 12 years and also "Sankalp members" give labor contribution here so that the amount can be saved. In this year we are facing lack of money which is a matter of concern for the camp.

About Sagar Island

Sagar island is an island in the Ganges delta, lying on the continental shelf of Bay of Bengal about 100 km (54 nautical miles) south of Kolkata.
This island, also known as Gangasagar or Sagardwip, is a place of Hindu pilgrimage. Every year on the day of Makar Sankranti (14 January), hundreds of thousands of Hindus gather to take a holy dip at the confluence of river Ganges and Bay of Bengal and offer prayers (puja) in the Kapil Muni Temple.

"Sankalp Camp" requesting you that donate to Gangasagar fair for 2018 (10 rupees, 20 rupees, 50 rupees), whatever can be done.
