Help Homeless and Destitute

Destitute and sick lying on streets need help…

Millions of our countrymen who are impoverished and homeless, live on streets. They are victims of causes like poverty, disability, unemployment etc. The most vulnerable among the homeless are the sick, who have no resources to avail medical treatment. Destitute women are prone to sexual exploitation. The situation of mentally ill is also precarious. More than anyone else, children who are homeless desperately need a caring environment, so that they can grow up as productive citizens of the country.

How can you help?
