The first phase of this effort was just completed successfully. All workers were very grateful for the support received. The second phase is set to begin this week. We will make sure to share new photos and videos when they become available. Below is a video that was taken during the first phase of distributions.
All of you remember the so-called Non-commissioned essentials (Army term) who made our life possible at Kgp. The mess workers, the rickshaw wallahs, etc. Since most of them were migrant workers, with the present lockdown they have nowhere to go and do not receive government benefits. We at the Foundation, listening to the request from the IIT Director, have decided to try and help them overcome this problem. This money will give each family Rs 1000 per month for food and Rs 200 per month for soap, etc. As you can see this is a very small amount but it will give them some major relief. The present amount assumes we need to support them for the next 6 months. Please do open your hearts and help in this.
Stay safe and stay healthy,
Director V.K. Tewari has penned a thank you letter to the alumni to express his gratitude for their support of KGP's Unsung Heroes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
