My name is Jiya Arora, and I am a Grade 11 student at DPS, GBN, Sector-132, Noida.
I have undertaken this campaign because I think being able to impact the lives of infants and abandoned children by funding their stay, food, education, clothes and medical care at PALNA is incredible. PALNA (which means “cradle” as well as “nurture”) an initiative by DCCW is the home for abandoned, homeless and destitute children. Infants are usually left/abandoned in the CRADLE which is placed outside the DCCW campus in Delhi.
The cost to take care of a child at PALNA is just INR 15000 per month. (The biggest cost is usually medical as many of the children who are abandoned have serious medical conditions, malnutrition issues, etc)
Please fund my campaign as a simple act of kindness on your part can have a profound impact on a child’s life. It will give them confidence and a wonderful life.
As an individual, I am trying to raise INR 15000 or more to impact a child for a month or more. Let us make a difference together. If we collect more funds we could support more children at PALNA or the same child for a longer duration.
