CARE TO­DAY ap­peals to cit­i­zens for con­tri­bu­tions

India Today - - LEISURE -

Care To­day Fund ap­peals to peace- lov­ing in­di­vid­u­als and cor­po­rate houses to reach out to the peo­ple af­fected by the out­break of vi­o­lence in As­sam, and con­trib­ute ac­tively to the As­sam Re­lief Fund.

Or­gan­ised vi­o­lence by any community and dis­re­spect to­wards the law is un­ac­cept­able in a civilised so­ci­ety. In As­sam, mis­cre­ants from two com­mu­ni­ties bru­tally killed in­no­cent peo­ple. Ac­cord­ing to the me­dia and NGOs, over 250 camps have been pro­vid­ing tem­po­rary shel­ter to more than 400,000 dis­placed peo­ple liv­ing in con­stant fear. Schools have been turned into re­lief camps, while chil­dren have lost their text­books. Many of these camps are cramped and the con­di­tions therein could po­ten­tially be­come a health haz­ard and re­sult in more deaths.

To pro­vide hu­man­i­tar­ian sup­port to af­fected com­mu­ni­ties, Care To­day Fund has set up the As­sam Re­lief Fund.

The goal is to rally cit­i­zens against the mind­less vi­o­lence that rocked As­sam and af­fected the na­tion. With the con­tri­bu­tions we re­ceive, we will sup­port the hu­man­i­tar­ian ef­forts on the ground, with­out any bias. Let us voice our protest and ac­tively re­spond to this cause.

All con­tri­bu­tions above Rs 5,000 will be ac­knowl­edged by men­tion­ing the names of the con­trib­u­tors in IN­DIA TO­DAY. All the do­na­tions qual­ify for in­come tax ex­emp­tion as per the pro­vi­sions un­der Sec­tion 80G of the In­come Tax Act.
