In the cold December and January night of Thanjavur, when the entire city dons their sweaters, monkey-caps and mufflers with a hot cup of tea , there are few under-privileged who cannot afford even a blanket and die – without a roof or cloth on their bare bodies
I am Ganesh Babu Thangadurai , Founder and Managing Trustee of Naam Hindukkal Hindu Religious Charitable Trust located at Thanjavur,Tamilnadu.Come winter, people shiver in cold. But, for those who cannot afford warm clothes or a blanket, Naam hindukkal have been donating them for the past 1 year. The purpose of this campaign is to request financial assistance for distributing blankets to the destitute sleeping on pavements, inmates of Orphanages, Blind Schools, Anganwadi and Child Labour Schools.
Our Naam Hindukkal trust members toured the streets of Thanjavur during nights gifting blankets to beggars and destitute's sleeping on pavements at Railway Stations, Busstand and Temples.We conducted survey on the status of old age poor women in the winter season . The report reveals that they are seriously lacking warm clothes, such as blanket and this create problem for them in winter season. The report also reveals that a large no of Poor old age persons and women death occurs in winter season due to lack of warm cloths. Due to deep poverty and ignorance by family, they are not able to manage the warm clothes & Blanket to save the life in winter season.Poor and helpless people sleep in rags at footpath and roadside and die of cold. These poor people sleep close to each other during cold waves but how one can sleep sound without blanket or quilt in such conditions. They shiver due to cold breeze all the night and some old age persons die of these waves.
We are in need of another 300 blankets ahead of the monsoon and winter season.We have raised funds from close circle of friends initially. As the need grew to cover more needy people, we have solicited help from the social media like Facebook,Fund Rasing Websites to reach out to more donors.
There is no better gift than providing warm clothing to the needy during winter season. Lakhs of homeless experience bitterness of winter and are at a great risk of suffering from severe illnesses. It's an opportunity to serve humanity by donating blankets to the needy. This winter, become a part of our mission. There cannot be a bigger satisfaction than saving someone’s life.The organization is also focus on improving the dignity of deprived persons i.e. widow, old age persons etc
Many thanks again for your support!!
