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 find it difficult to afford even the basic necessities of life.
On 16th May, 2017 a massive fire broke out in southeast Delhi’s Nizamuddin area, engulfing a number of shanties. Dream a Difference came to know about this and took the onus to serve for the cause. Our team visited the spot and witnessed several people homeless, bereft of any household items, clothes or food. Children with anxiety in their hearts were dawdling on the streets, while there were no visible signs of help from the Delhi government. No tents were erected and the helpless people were forced to survive under the sky, exposed to the scorching heat of summer.
Our team promptly jumped to action and 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 immediately arranged for 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 and is always available for assisting the underprivileged community.
