NGO�s noble bid to help the needy

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 2 � In the hectic schedule of life the underprivileged section of the society is often forgotten or neglected. Behind the sordidness of the poverty pockets in the capital city, this section deprived of all the good things of life struggle to meet their minimum necessities which include clothes just to cover their bodies.

To help this needy section meet their requirement of clothes, Ecotourism Society of North East India collected unused clothes and distributed them amongst the poor in Guwahati.

�Just throwing a coin would not help and we know that we cannot do charity just out of emotions, but we do understand that together we can. One responsible action by each individual can bring about big changes,� said Gautam Dutta, president of the society.

The society, realising that every middle class household has plenty of old unused things like clothes and toys which are either dumped or not used any more, has appealed to the citizens to come forward and donate their unused clothes and toys.

�We are trying to provide some clothes to the needy and toys for the children so that we can bring a few more smiles around us,� added Dutta pointing out that there are hundreds of people living in the gateway to the North East who are most neglected and that their need for food, shelter and clothing can compel them to take any step, be it right or wrong.

The society collected around 300 pieces of clothes from Panjabari, Chandmari, Ulubari, Beltola, Kalapahar, Rehabari, Bhangagarh and Lachitnagar areas and distributed the same at two points in the city-- Sukleswar Ghat and Guwahati Railway Station.

The society has extended its gratitude to the citizens for supporting its cause.

�As we know that we are coming to the end of this year and very soon we will step into a new year, we would like to end the year on a positive note,� said Dutta.
