Dwarka: Recently in May, at Lovely Home Apartments in Sector 5, Dwarka, two members of a family died all of a sudden due to Covid. The main member of the family and his mother died. His wife too was admitted in a hospital due to Covid. The process of cremation of both of them was a tough task due to protocol and there was no one senior except the two kids.
At that moment, some like minded people came together and helped in the process to perform the cremation. That group of people is helping others who are in need inside the society fighting with Covid.
The group of seven people – Adesh Sharma, Vishal Gupta, Rajiv Chopra, Mukesh Makhijani, Sonu Auria, Shan, Mohit and Vivek Singh – is working for the cause. The group is having members of managing committee too.
Pioneer of the concept, Adesh Sharma shared about the idea, “There are people in the society who are seniors and covid positive. Their children are abroad and we knew that for anything they call their children. Then they call their friend in the area or at a distance and then the support reaches to the needy parents in our society. So I thought to do something for the society and the idea was shared by me to like minded people. Thereafter we started as a team to help the people.”
The team helps the needy people by managing resources and ensuring help reaching to the needy people. They provide helps like providing medicines to admitting to hospitals or anything else for any Covid positive who has no other support for help.
Acting president of the society, Vivek Singh said, “We do what we could and mostly we do it through information sharing. But if needed we will do it physically too. Like there are some members who are Covid recovered, then they help people in taking to hospital.”
