Delhi is one of the biggest metropolises in the world with a population of around 18 million but has a large population of lower income group which have to live in slums. These people are mostly unemployed or daily wage workers who are not able to afford even the basic necessities of life.
On 16th May, 2017a massive fire broke out engulfing a number of shanties at in southeast Delhi’s Nizamuddin area. Dream a Difference came to know about this and took the onus to serve for the cause. Our team visited the spot and saw several homeless without having any household items, clothes or food. Children with anxiety in their hearts were dawdling on the streets, while there were no signs of help from the Delhi government. No tents were erected, as the unfortunates were surviving under the sky, exposed to the scorching sun.
Our team arranged food, water, energy drinks and medicines for the victims. Our team also found that two children were suffering from high fever. An ambulance was promptly arranged and they were admitted to RML hospital for proper treatment.
In such times, it is important that we as a society come together to provide all the help to the homeless and the destitute. Dream a Difference is committed to such causes always available for assisting the underprivileged community.
