Residents of Dwarka donated generously at a collection camp organised by Goonj today. The camp was organised as part of the Joy of Giving week from October 2-8, aimed at the rehabilitation of victims in the flood-affected areas of 10 Indian states.
The camp was organised on the footpath in front of New Millennium Apartments in Sector 23.
People from across the sub-city donated stationery goods, clothes, utensils, medicines, dry food material and other items to support the initiative. At the end of the camp, there was one full truck of relief material.
According to one of the volunteers, Arvind Agrawal, who’s also a resident of New Millennium Apartments, there will be another camp on October 7 in Sector 19 as well. Agrawal said, “People supported the camp wholeheartedly. Goonj is conducting this campaign in 40 cities across the country and the collected material will be used to support the recent flood-affected states.”
Many residents volunteered at the camp. RK Chowhan, a resident of Radhika Apartments in Sector 14, said, “I went to donate clothes but stayed back to help out at the camp. It was a great feeling of satisfaction. I will try and volunteer at the next camp as well.”
