Warm Up Dilli Campaign – Donate Wollens, caps, socks and blankets
Keeping warm in Delhi winters is a battle. Especially for those who have limited means. For these defenceless people, exposure to cold leads to severe health problems every day. Blisters, cracked skin, infections, cuts and bruises, are some of the problems.
Every winter, we our “Warm up Dilli” campaign benefit over a 1000 children and adults on streets and in slums. We urge you to be someone’s saviour and donate your old/new warm sweater jackets that you have outgrown, shoes, socks, gloves and woolen caps.
“Toys provide a great opportunity for children to learn. They engage a child’s senses, spark their imaginations and encourage them to interact with others. And no child should be devoid of such an opportunity for holistic development.”
Therefore our “Khilone Dil Se” Drive is a programme that runs on donations of new and used toys. The highlight is the annual Toy carnival during christmas for poor children with a vast selection of toys all nicely wrapped for the taking!
On top of the presents, we also treat about 500 underprivileged children to fun games and yummy food. The purpose of the programme is to deliver a message of hope and love. Toys spark creativity, and more importantly, they are made for play – something every child loves to do! With the Toy Carnival, Uboontu Foundation seeks to show underprivileged children that they too are special.
The Toy carnival is supported by toy donations from individuals as well as Uboontu Foundation corporate partners. Toys are typically bought with a donation of funds or collected through toy donation drives. Wish to bring smiles to a bunch of adorable young faces? You can help by holding a toy donation drive or provide us with funds to purchase toys. The Toy Carnival happens every Chritsmas and we accept toy donations between September to October. Write to us if you are interested to hold a toy donation drive in your school, office or society.
We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.
