For a country infested with the epidemic of poverty and hunger, any initiative aimed at eradicating hunger from the streets of the capital city, New Delhi, is a boon. One such organisation is the Fulfilling Dreams Foundation.
Founded by a conglomerate of students and ex-students from Delhi University, Amity and other universities in NCR, Fulfilling Dreams Foundation carries out mass feeding campaigns across highly impoverished areas like Nizamuddin, Kale Khan, Old Delhi and R.K. Puram every fortnight. They provide healthy food to children twice a month. The expenses are borne by the members who are quite a few in number. A sum of Rs. 500 donated by the members suffices for a month.
Fulfilling Dreams Foundation was founded a year ago with the intention to redistribute excess food wasted by the privileged to the ones in desperate need. The primary community is school and slum children. The organisation is also in talks with corporate firms for sustaining their activities in the long run. Currently, the members comprise of volunteers from various Delhi University colleges. The organisation also conducts blood donation drives and distributes essentials other than food too. From distributing food from the boot of cars to collecting over 600 kg raw materials for the Nepal quake victims, FDF takes its work of making the world a better place for all seriously. Fulfilling Dreams Foundation is in search of dedicated, compassionate and students who want to make an impact in the lives of those who are devoid of the privileges enjoyed by the upper class. Their next drive will be on Saturday, the 5th of September to Yamuna Pushta. Apply through their Facebook page!
