Dear Friends,

I am writing this email on behalf of All India Kabadi Mazdoor Mahasangh(AIKMM). There has been a massive fire in Masoodpur in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi around 7:30 am on 25 April 2014, where waste recyclers live. Approximately 1000 huts (Jhuggi) were razed to the ground. The waste recyclers lost everything except the clothes which they were wearing. Fortunately there were no casualties only some minor injuries were there. Members from different areas are contributing whatever they can by arranging food, clothes, blankets and shelter for them.

We urgently need blankets and other household stuff.

Please can you help us in this. Please call at 09968413109 or email at to contribute.

Thanks and regards,

Shashi Bhushan Pandit
