Aavhan, the sports fest of IIT Bombay is raising funds for RAHAT COVID campaign for GOONJ | An initiative to help the needy amidst the pandemic
Greetings from Aavhan, the Annual Sports Fest of IIT Bombay! The coronavirus pandemic has led us to stock up on supplies and ensure that we maintain the highest standards to prevent any infections to us. However, give a thought to the lakhs of migrants who are out of work and have no means left to fend for themselves and their families and to those who work on the frontline to contain the spread. There is a dire need for protective gear like masks, gloves and hygiene products like sanitizers and handwashes to all of those people. The lockdown has been a consistent struggle between “Stay Home” and “I want to go home”.
Here’s a platform to do your bit to help alleviate and solve these concerns. The Fundraiser is aimed to help the beneficiaries of the Rahat COVID Campaign of Goonj, a credible non-profit which abides by the motto Dignity, Not Charity is the Way Forward!
Aavhan’s Virtual Run, a run-for-a-cause event, aims to end the long walks-for-water while giving them a clean drop-to-drink and enough grains-to-eat amidst the harsh lockdown days.
Goonj has been actively involved in multiple facets to provide relief. While they have distributed more than 1.6 million kgs of ration, cloths, masks, sanitary pads and supported community kitchens, this fundraiser will help those who’ve fallen prey to circumstances to fall forward and bounce back to sustainable living.
Goonj Values people’s ambitions and aspirations, Focuses on their needs and Makes them self-sustainable!
Do donate generously as Goonj leads reinvigorated efforts to help people grappling with the pandemic and the ramifications of the lockdown. Join hands with us as we aim to become the change we want to see!
