Dear Reader,

The IITKGP Foundation is working to bring together alumni in support of the "KGP Alumni Fund for COVID-19", which will provide IIT-Kharagpur campus and vicinity staff with rations due to the Corona Virus lockdown. The staff which include the mess workers, dhobis, rickshaw wallahs, etc. are receiving no pay and little benefits and need assistance with basic necessities. Please give back generously to this critical fund!
