A group of female residents from Noida’s sector 137 embarked upon a philanthropic mission. The group styled Eco-Social Group, which has been active for quite some time now, distributed woolens feeling the need of the underprivileged sections on the onset of winter.
Apart from brand new woolen cloths, the group distributed sleepers along with all the goodies of children, bought from their hard earned money, in a Shahdara village on Tuesday.
The all-women group’s 12 active members have been contributing money for the last one year to provide quality food to underprivileged children at least once a month.
Talking to CitySpidey, Meenu Agarwal, a resident of Supertech Eco City and a member of the group, said, “We cook at our homes in whatever capacity we can and then visit slums or other nearby areas and distribute food.”
The women in the age of group of 35 to 60 years decided to provide winter clothing to children who can't afford it.
“We contributed money and ordered the same colour sweaters, which the children will use as a uniform when they go to NGO Dular where they are schooled,” Agarwal added.
The food distributed in the past consisted of Poori-Sabzi, Dal-Chawal, Rajma-Chawal and other nutritional food.
The children at the center also performed for their quest, the women also held a brief talk on what a good and bad touch is with the children, which received a positive response from children.
“We plan to make this an every 15 days activity rather than a monthly”, said Diksha Joshi, another member of the group.
The residents of sector 137 have also formed a cultural group, "137 Sankratic Seva Foundation", to encourage, support and organise similar activities.
