Story

About Initiative:

From December till March, when most of us sleep with a cozy comforter & blankets, more than thousands of homeless sleep on the roadsides. Without a blanket they almost freeze in severe winters with temperatures as low as 4°C-8°C.

In the freezing nights I found many poor people living on roads. There are millions of underprivileged who cannot afford even a blanket and die – without a roof or cloth on their bare bodies. Giving blankets & warm apparel items is a great way of helping out the community. Donations of blankets can make a great difference to an individual, especially homeless. I with my parents initiated this drive to provide blankets to help people keep warm in Agra & nearby rural areas of Agra. The initiative is to distribute to atleast 1000 homeless/roadside people.

Where & What We Distribute:

With your help, we shall be able to provide following items to homeless/roadside people:

• Warm Blankets
• Woollen Caps
• Woollen Socks
• Woollen Gloves

Budget:

The above Kit Cost around Rs 300/- (Including Logistics).
