Instead of selling your newspapers to the raddi-wala
, donate them to the Uday Foundation. We sell them to paper manufacturers and the money is used for a Food Donation Drive
organized for caregivers of patients battling for their lives in AIIMS, New Delhi.
This food drive is organized twice a week; our van pulls up and feeds about 1,000 people a day, many of them living on the pavements outside AIIMS while they await medical attention. On an average, a plate of food costs Rs 15 which can be earned by selling 1.5 kg of newspapers only - that's about 20 copies of a national newspaper.
Uday Foundation's food van feeds thousands of people every week outside Delhi's AIIMS
To participate, please send your old newspapers to our collection centre:
