33,518 homeless people died in Delhi between January 2004 and October 2015 because of the cold weather conditions, according to the data released by the zonal integrated police network under the union ministry. That means 3000/season and we are not sure about the status in 2015 and 2016.
The Government despite of erupting sculptures, if could have given homes to these needy with the money the common man pay as tax, then the above figure could have lowered and Helping Brainz today couldn’t have seen human beings shivering and combating the weather conditions in the streets of Delhi.
Helping Brainz, conducted a night donation drive where we donated clothes to the needy kids, mothers, men and age old with blankets, quilts, sweaters, bed sheets etc. We started our journey from Vasundhara Enclave (10:30 PM) after collecting clothes and blankets from Monica Rumi Ghosh and Sitalakshmi Ma’am, and the drive ended at Kalka Mandir, Kalkaji (4:00 AM). Areas covered where Bhairo Baba Mandir, Connaught Circus, Baba Kharak Singh Marg, and Kalka Mandir. People who contributed where Monica Rumi Ghosh, Sitalakshmi Sarma, Anup Shanker, Sandeep Kumar and Yedhu Krishna Menon.
A special thanks to Anup (the Helping Brain behind the event), who drove all the way and to Sandeep who volunteered for the happening. 😉
