Delhi's Street Children Raise Funds for Nepal Earthquake Victims

Nepal has been devastated by a major earthquake on April 25, 2015, measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale that has so far left over 5,700 people dead. Many street children living in Delhi associated with Badhte Kadam, a federation of street and working children, took to the streets to collect aid for victims of the Nepal earthquake. The youngsters knocked on the doors of many commercial establishments in Lajpat Nagar and Sarojini Nagar in south Delhi to collect donations.

Sanjay Gupta, director of NGO Chetna, said, "Many children become victims of trafficking whenever such calamities occur. We hope citizens of Delhi will contribute wholeheartedly."


According to Badhte Kadam, the children collected Rs.5,000 on the first day and the drive will continue till the target of Rs.10,000 is not achieved. These donations will then be sent to the Prime Minister's Relief Fund.
