The brutal night cold troubles millions of Indians, who have made the streets their home. Through this initiative, we are trying to bring some warmth into their lives.
Our story begins after the devastating floods in Jammu Kashmir in 2014. Rapid Response CEO along with his team headed to Srinagar for response. As there is no proper electricity and heating, our team find extremely difficult to pass through the nights at the hotel. In that same situation, we have witnessed hundreds of our fellow Indians sleeping on the streets without proper clothing and blanket. We were deeply disturbed by those scenes. After our return, we have launched India’s biggest blanket drive - The Blanket Project. To know more about this project and its impact, please visit: www.theblanketproject.org
Where we distribute:
Based on the Temperature Index and Need Assessment, we have chosen the following six cities. 1. Delhi, 2. Bangalore, 3. Hyderabad, 4. Lucknow, 5. Srinagar, 6. Guwahati.
The funds raised here will be used to distribute 4000 Blankets.
Each Blanket Costs INR 150 including logistics.
4000 x 150 = 6,00,000/-
