More than half of funds meant to help Pakistani Hindu refugees raised as netizens come together

In the past too, netizens had come together to provide blankets, shawls and woollen clothes to these migrants who were battling the bone-chilling cold of the National Capital

Pakistani Hindu refugees living in the wretched condition in Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar have something to cheer for as groups of empathetic social media users have come forward to alleviate their misery and improve their living standards.

Many of these migrants are living as refugees in Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar for a very long time now. Their condition is so pitiable that a large number of them struggle to make their ends meet. Electricity is a privilege for them and in this scorching summer when the mercury is nearing close to 47-48 degree Celsius in the National Capital, these unfortunate people are residing without electricity in such a blazing summer.

A fundraiser is being floated online to solicit funds and help provide the Adarsh Nagar migrants with Electricity. The Pakistani Hindus are living in the area without an Electricity connection for over a year now. Earlier, the group was provided with a diesel generator for their Electricity woes but they couldn’t get the authorities to restore the electric connection. The group now aims to bring Solar Powered solution to reduce the difficulties faced by the migrants.

At the time of this report being written, Rs 4 lakh 10 thousand out of their stated goal of raising Rs 6.6 lakhs has been raised. The funds are to be utilised for purchasing Solar Panels with an inverter, battery, fan, lights and a power point for the remaining 50 households with solar power. It is an uphill task as each Solar Power unit costs roughly Rs 12000 excluding the freight and installation charges. The contribution can be made here.

Many concerned citizens have now come to fore to help the Pakistani Hindus and improve the living conditions of the migrants. Contributions are being made to ensure that basic amenities are provided to these residents. However, this campaign is also a testimony to how successive governments in our country have failed to provide an honourable and dignified life to Hindus who fled their country and came to India with the hope of living a better, safe and secure life.

The Pakistani Hindu refugees have expressed their gratitude to the people for assuaging their predicament and providing their children with fans and light bulbs. But there are 50 households still remaining to be provided with Solar powered electricity.

In the past too, netizens had come together to provide blankets, shawls and woollen clothes to these migrants who were battling the bone-chilling cold of the National Capital without having the sufficient means to protect themselves from it.
