Mumbai, November 23, 2020: Though the world has settled into the new normal since the COVID-19 pandemic, its effect on the common people is far from over. The unprecedented nationwide lockdown spelt doom on more than millions of people who were found to be suffering to make ends meet or even afford two square meals a day.
Touched by this, the students of K.P.B Hinduja College and Saarthi Foundation organised a social initiative drive to provide a helping hand to the poor and needy. These students of the BIM Department of KPB Hinduja College organised this drive as a pre-event of the I-Club and contributed towards the society by distributing food packets, hand sanitisers and face masks.
The drive conducted under the able mentorship of Dr Minu Madlani, Principal, KPB Hinduja College, Dr Antara Sonawane, Vice Principal and Dr Shital Mody, Convener, saw the students make a difference to approximately 150 individuals by providing them with lessons on health and sanitation and nourishing their hunger.
On the community event, Dr Minu Madalani, Principal, K.P.B. Hinduja College said, “We are extremely proud of our students to have organised this drive and make this kind of a difference to these people who need it the most. As members of the society, we all have a social responsibility to follow and we constantly try to instil these values into our students as well. We are glad to say that looking at the difference this event has made, our students have pledged to continue doing such noble causes at regular intervals and helping the underprivileged in whatever way they can.”
The social partner for this event was Aeron Fly and the delicious meals for the food packets were provided by food partner The Happy Plate.
