    Hum Hai Na Campaign COVID19 Relief Works

    from Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh


Hridaan is a youth-led initiative run by Kalam Foundation in association with Tata Trusts and Social Empowerment Society to support the underprivileged Tuberculosis patients living in the rural areas of India. The funds generated through this festival will be used to deliver nutritious food to the pre-mapped TB patients for a period of 6 months. Since these patients are facing challenging times due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resultant lockdown, there nutritional requirements are not being met which has posed the threat of the spread of this disease in the community.

Hridaan Festival has a series of recreational events and competitions where anyone can participate. We have put a very nominal registration fee for the participants which will be directed towards the cause of supporting the nutrition food to pre-mapped TB patients.
