1.Jai Hind Transport Services to transport the consignment from Kolkata to Jharkhand
2. Sant Nandlal Marwari Sat Sangh, Ghatsila for support in transporting the blankets to the remote Mosaboni.
Birhor is a tiny tribal community of Jharkhand. They are basically forest dwellers and dependant on fruit gathering and forest produce for their sustenance . During this winter two of their women died due to extreme cold. There are just 20 families in this Birhor settlement in Bhadua Panchayat located about 10 km away from Ghatsila. Our Swadhina state office is located in Ghatsila town and we thought it to be an important task to help them.
On January 20,2019 we organized the blanket distribution program and each of these 21 families was given a blanket. This program was conducted by Swadhina Secretary Ms
Saswati Roy Patnaik assisted by Ladu Ram Mahato. Sri Prasenjit Karmakar, a teacher from Sant Nandlal School was also
present.These blankets were procured
with the kind donation we received from
a family from Kerala - Shivan, Deepthi and Paramesh .We record
our sincere gratitude to them for this timely help.
