Since its inception, Urja Samiti has been assigned to manage and maintain these shelters. Over the last two years, more than 17,000 homeless and needy persons have been provided a place to spend their nights. “These people have been provided warm/ comfortable beddings, clean toilets, dinner, breakfast etc. The beneficiaries include homeless and other needy people who were earlier forced to spend their nights at railway station, metro stations, bus stand and roadsides, under various flyovers in the harsh weather,” Chug added.
He also said that Urja Samiti till now has been arranging money from various resources, including business organizations and private donations, but to carry on with the cause they need more money.
“Urja Samiti and its various volunteers have been providing continuous service in maintaining various services in these night shelters also. We are in need of funds/ donations for these people as there is a paucity of funds on account of the reason that until now we have not collected any funds from any source and we have incurred expenses upon the maintenance of night shelters at our own.”
So, we appeal the donor industrialists/ people to maintain and support these activities continuously by way of providing some funds for this purpose so that more and more such type of projects may be undertaken in the coming years," Chugh appealed.
He said that people may donate through cash or cheque in favour of Urja Samiti and may also provide food etc on various important occasions. He added that people need not to have any fear about their donations as they will not be used in any wrong cause.
“It will be better to intimate that Urja Samiti is a registered organisation and all such donations made to Urja Samiti are eligible for a tax relief under Income Tax section 80G,” he informed.
