New Delhi: In this hard time of the pandemic, when corona warrior doing their best to save people’s lives, there are also some Samaritans, who are silently serving people. Moreover, irrespective of any financial and personal benefit, they are doing this for the sake of humanity. BK Dutt colony in South Delhi’s Jor Bagh area is perhaps a less known locality for Delhiites but when it comes to working for the local residents, the Citizen Residents Welfare Association (CRWA) member never a foot behind than the corona warrior.
Along with distributing free masks and running awareness campaigns, the CRWA also provide door-step food to the people who are infected with corona and cannot go out.
“There are still around 50 families in the colony who have corona positive people in their house. In such a situation, it is better for them as well as others that they do not roam outside. But they have daily needs and due to deteriorating health, many of them are unable to cook food. Hence, the CRWA has taken the responsibility on its own to provide food and other necessary things to them,” said Harbans Dunkal, President of the CRWA.
“We have contacted the nearby Aliganj gurdwara and requested them to avail food for infected people. We also arrange other necessary things for people from the CRWA fund,” he said, adding that this is being done only to save our people who had been stood with us in difficult times in the past.
Apart from free food, it is also being taken care of that the virus and dengue or malaria don’t spread in the locality. For this, the members of the CRWA are continuously carrying out sanitisation drive and sprinkling pesticide to kill the mosquito larva.
“There are around 1,100 families in BK Dutt colony and out of which around 100 had covid positive cases in their house. Though 50 per cent of them have recovered but others are still infected with the virus. We are helping them in all possible ways like provide free food and daily use items. We are also helping them in getting vaccinated,” said Sudhir Mahajan, Secretary of the CRWA.
Mahajan further said that we have also witnessed dengue and malaria cases here. For this, we have contacted the NDMC for sprinkling the medicine.
