The money received through our registration helped us to buy masks and benefitted 250 underprivileged families in Bhandup, Mulund and Govandi slums. The people find it a very meaningful way of donation. Comments from the beneficieries- “Hamare pass Bhaji keliye paisa nahi, phir kaise mei mask isthamal karum”, “Beta muche lene ka dha phair chalis rupaya kaise muche parvadeka, aur hamare ghar mei char jan hei, muche nahi hota… Thank you”.

The volunteers found it very difficult to move inside the chawl but at the end of the work all found it as a worthwhile activity.
