SEWA foundation Kharghar has started an initiative to collect discarded items from households and later distribute them to needy persons. They collect used clothes, shoes, sleepers, bedsheets, kids’ clothes, toys, books, and raincoats among other items by visiting door to door. SEWA Foundation is an NGO that works for society.
The foundation distributed clothes among slums in Kharghar. Rajesh Shrivastava, president of the SEWA Foundation said that old and used clothes collected from donors were distributed to around 55 slum dwellers in sector 11. “There is a slum at sector 11 where daily wage labourers and others reside. We are planning to provide them free education,” said Shrivastava.
The NGO has issued a number where people can collect discarded items. The mobile number is 8286201111. The NGO had provided food during Covid and ensured train tickets going to their native places.
