    from West Singhbhum, Jharkhand

80G tax benefits for INR donations

Located at the foothills of the Vindhyachal range in the West Sonbhadra and Mirzapur district of Uttar Pradesh, is the Sardah village. With a population of around 100 people, the beauty of this village is no less than a poet's imagination.

Small beautiful houses, kachha roads, a breathtakingly beautiful river flowing across the village, flourishing farms with kids playing in them, the sight of Sardah is truly a God's creation.

However, as soon as December arrives, these sights change drastically. Being in the foothills of the Vindhyachal range, Sardah faces a very harsh winter, which the villagers are unable to manage. Most of the population here is dependent on farming or work as labourers. The daily income of the people here is about 50 rupees.

In such a situation, they are unable to buy warm clothes in this cold weather and life becomes very difficult for them.

Every year, because of the harsh weather and unavailability of proper clothes or heating, a new born or an old person loses their life.
Not just Sardah, a lot of other villages in this area, face this plight every winter.

Here is a video:

When an organization named Hope Welfare Trust, got to know about the situation of villagers in Sardah and neighbouring villages, they came forward to help by providing them blankets and sweaters

Every year, the youth of Hope Welfare Trust, use their personal savings and contributions from citizens like you, to buy winter clothes for these villagers.

This year, because of the COVID-19 situation, Hope Welfare Trust has not been about to raise the required funds to arrange warm clothes for all the villagers.

The Better India is joining hands with Hope Welfare Trust this winter, to raise funds for Sardah. We are in need of Rs. 5,50,000. The breakup and usage of the cost is mentioned in the table below:

We appeal to all our readers to come forward and help us raise funds for the children and senior citizens of Sardah and its neighboring villages. Let’s join hands to make them enter 2021 with a warm and good night’s sleep!

Entire funds raised from this fundraiser will be transferred to Hope Welfare Trust.

About Hope Welfare Trust:
Hope is an initiative by youngsters with a will to bring about a change in the society, especially rural India.

It started as a nascent movement from Varanasi in September 2015 when a group of students from various universities and colleges joined hands for rural development.

The idea of Hope is to bring out sustainable development in Indian villages and involve women to play a key role. Thus, Hope works strategically towards rural development and women empowerment.
