The cold doesn’t kill people, lack of clothing does !!’- Join Rahat winters

“Raat bhar aag sekte hain zinda rehney key liye, phir din mey majdoori kaisey karengey?” (We pass our nights sitting around the fire to survive, then how will we work in the day) says Ashok Paswan in village Bargaon, Bihar.

The story is worse elsewhere; Mehbooba at Shamli in U.P. has just lost her youngest kid due to lack of woolens. 40 similar deaths are reported from this area where hundreds of families are still struggling in make shift tents of old bedsheets and sarees after the recent riots. 

There are unending stories every year from all over as winters set in. Often blankets and woolens are given away outside religious places, however, the far-flung villages hardly get any attention and millions still sleep in pits or heap of husk to keep themselves warm.

With 3 major disasters this year i.e. Floods in Uttarakhand, Cyclone and floods in Odisha and riots in UP, the need is much more and urgent.. Write to us on for organising camps and to know more about the campaign. Do join, act and share.
