KERALA FLOOD RELIEF DONATION CAMP (29th August 2018)
Floods are becoming an inevitable phenomenon in India. Over the past few decades, coastal areas all over the world have faced floods. Recent Floods in Kerala had caused heavy loss of life and property. The calamities and its aftermath have made us realise that we are at the mercy of nature. After being a technologically advanced country, we lack the basic amenities and human resources to provide for the victims when it strikes.
In this gloomy phenomenon, PARAS India has launched a campaign to assist in Relief Operations. It arranged a Donation Camp in Delhi and its surrounding areas for over a week where people from local communities contributed through giving clothes, money and medicines. Volunteers collected the items on the basis of a list issued by the Kerala government and finally got a very good response. The NGO submitted clothes, medicines etc to the Kerala House in Connaught Place in New Delhi and sent financial help collected through the campaign to Kerala Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund.
RAKSHA BANDHAN (26th August 2018)
“The thread of Rakhi is so powerful that it can bring even two people from different communities together and let them share this pious relationship of brothers and sisters”.
PARAS India celebrated Raksha Bandhan with underprivileged children at all its centres with enthusiasm and happiness. Girls/Women tied Rakhi to the Boys/Men and exchanged sweets. They wished for the well being of each other. PARAS India celebrated this occasion to reaffirm its never - ending bond with children associated with it and to flourish love, care, affection and sacred feeling of brotherhood. One of the tribal girls spoke with tears in her eyes “Today, on the auspicious occasion of Raksha Bandhan, I am blessed to have a brother, now I feel protected and equally excited.” All boys wished “Happy Raksha Bandhan to all sisters of the Universe!” In India, festivals are the celebration of togetherness, of being one of the family. Raksha Bandhan is one such festival that is all about affection, fraternity and the pious bond of brother and sister. We witnessed the beauty, essence and inherent strength of the brother-sister relationship. In today’s busy life people hardly have time to meet their near and dear ones, this occasion offered PARAS India a way to bond with the community in a cordial way.
