On 73rd Republic Day, Sneh Shilp Foundation launched its initiative of ‘Help on Wheels’ which is a van that runs across the city and collects the extra food from the kitchens of the religious places and offers it to people who are unable to manage the daily food needs of their family. Currently, this van is plying in selected areas and is already reaching out to more than 400 families per day. With efforts of volunteers at Sneh Shilp Foundation, we aim to take this number to 2000 families soon.
Hygiene and Sanitation
We recognized the multiple efforts that a woman makes each day of her life. Our Founder, Mrs. Snehal Brahmbhatt took a visit to one of our construction sites to honour the work of the women workers who leave behind so much and toil for the betterment of their families. After seeing the plight of women who are unaware or unable to manage their basic needs, Sneh Shilp Foundation volunteered and distributed sanitary kits to all the women at the site. Not only that, but volunteers also explained to the workers the importance of hygiene and how one can maintain it.
Health Check-up Camps
Sneh Shilp Foundation, in association with Karnavati Dental College, organized a dental check-up camp at Rahelba Vruddhashram. More than 60 residents of Rahelba underwent the check-up and were given tips on oral hygiene along with a session explaining the importance maintaining oral hygiene. This was a welcome move, and the initiative was greatly appreciated by all the residents. We conducted a similar all-inclusive body check-up for our workers at the construction sites. The workers felt special and participated enthusiastically.
Saving the gift called life
The world needs more blood than we can ever imagine. Sneh Shilp Foundation organized a blood donation drive in association with Red Cross Society with the noble intent of saving lives. People came forward and donated blood for the ones in need. We understood that tears and empathy will not save lives. We set out on the fearless mission of contributing our bit to the world. We also conducted a similar drive during Covid. Our team had managed to collect blood from over 50 volunteers and had supplied it to the critical covid patients.
Our efforts gave a second chance to live to many. We realized that we cannot live only for ourselves. We thank each person who came forward and became a hero for someone, somewhere.
