New Delhi, February 20, 2023: In light of the auspicious festival of Mahashivratri, Delhi-based NGO, Wishes and Blessings distributed 2000 milk glasses to the homeless and destitute children. The drive was executed by organizing a unique milk distribution drive across Delhi NCR, Jharkhand, Karnataka, and West Bengal on 18th February 2023.
Wishes and Blessings have been celebrating this holy festival in a distinctive manner for the last six years. The beneficiaries of this year’s milk distribution drive include street and slum children, homeless children living in night shelters, orphans, visually impaired children, and children with physical disabilities. The NGO welcomed kind-hearted and generous individuals to come forward and contribute to this unique initiative.
Commenting on the occasion, the Founder and President of Wishes and Blessings said,
“It’s in small moments like these that I realize the magnitude of the efforts of social workers and in moments like these that I realize that every effort contributes to making a difference. It warmed my heart to see the contentment of the little ones as they gulped the glasses of milk. What we take for granted is a luxury for so many of the lesser fortunate out there. I appreciate everyone who came forward to assist us in spreading joy and positivity to those in need.”
Anjali, a beneficiary from the streets of Delhi said,
“Mama told me that milk is very nutritious for young children like me. I am so grateful that the didis and bhaiyas came to distribute these refreshing glasses of milk to me and my siblings. I feel happy and stronger today!”
Since 2014, Wishes and Blessings have been spreading happy smiles amongst the underprivileged through their various happiness-centric programs.
