SRINAGAR: A voluntary organization working at SMHS hospital to provide essential services like meals, tea, milk, juices, drinking water etc. to the injured as well as to other regular patients, has appealed people to send contributions in whatever means they can.
Youth Welfare Committee, Bemina which has been working 24×7 inside the hospital since the agitation erupted in the Valley; have said that very limited stock has been left with it to carry on with the voluntary work. “The demand has exceeded manifold. Currently we provide around 1500 plates of rice everyday and distribute around 30 to 35 cases of drinking water bottles. We have daily 3 to 4 quintals of milk and 15, 000 bread and bun usage as well,” says the Committee’s chairman, Mohammad Amin Rather.
Rather says that the organization was in dire need of water bottles’, bread, milk and vegetables.
“Our overall daily expenditure has gone to around Rs 75,000 which as of now is somewhat impossible for us. Earlier, we had our collection but that was spent during the past three weeks,” he said. “Our appeal for general public is to contribute in whatever ways and means they can so that the needy people who have no one or are unable to care patients here (hospital) would be provided some sort of relief,” he added.
