Sometimes a Blanket is All That Stands Between Life and Death!
Give The Gift Of Warmth to Cancer Patients in Street Shelters
"I have come here to get my daughter treated, but the hospital beds are full and we have to wait in the city until she gets admission". As the cold envelops our cities and the gray fog rolls in, families who have come to hospitals from distant villages seeking treatment huddle in overcrowded street shelters and pavements seeking warmth, severely endangering their children's already compromised immune systems in the cold.
This year the situation has been worsened by Covid -19, severely limiting hospital capacity forcing even more families seeking cancer treatment for their children into overflowing shelters & sometimes pavements & streets. Our street patrols constantly survey areas around hospitals as guardian angels helping families in need with guidance , shelter, food, counseling and most importantly a shoulder to lean on.
Your help is needed more than ever to provide winter blankets to those in dire need. Each blanket costs Rs 500/- and will be distributed to needy children with cancer and their families.
