An opportunity for all of us to feed the needy

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Most of us here in India might not have been affected very much due to Global Economic Crisis. But it's hard to note that it's surely affecting the donations/contributions to various voluntary organizations like NGOs, Orphanages, etc. Just to give you an example, many voluntary organizations depending on Satyam's donations are in serious trouble, I am really not sure if they are getting as much funds as they used to during the heydays of Satyam. Slowly but steadily, the effect of current crisis is penetrating into every aspect of our day to day life. The situation has even made such voluntary organizations to think twice before asking for any help from well wishers. They are no more proactive in asking for 'generous' help due to the fear that though the help may come, but it might not be 'generous'!

Despite such circumstances, one cannot deny the fundamental needs of food, shelter and clothing, simply because they are the very means of our existence. I believe, present critical situation is only testing the perseverance of those who really want to contribute something back to the civil society, especially contributing to those who are in dire need. If you think you can help with 'generosity', then here is an opportunity. I must have mentioned in my earlier posts about Makkala Mane, a home for destitute girl children. Makkala Mane need some help to full fill those fundamental needs of children. If you think you can contribute in whatever little way, please feel free to do so. Here are few requirements which i received from Mr. Uday Kumar, Executive Director of Makkala Mane.
