Destitute and sick lying on streets need help…
Millions of our countrymen who are impoverished and homeless, live on streets. They are victims of causes like poverty, disability, unemployment etc. The most vulnerable among the homeless are the sick, who have no resources to avail medical treatment. Destitute women are prone to sexual exploitation. The situation of mentally ill is also precarious. More than anyone else, children who are homeless desperately need a caring environment, so that they can grow up as productive citizens of the country.
How can you help?
When you encounter a sick and helpless destitute on the street, the least you can do is to ring up individuals or organizations who are engaged in providing rescue, succour, food, shelter and medical assistance to the distressed. In order to facilitate this, we have listed in Resources below contact details of such persons and NGOs.
If you wish you can do much more by making financial contributions to the NGOs who provide the caring and healing touch. You can also consider volunteering your services.
