Punjab flood relief update

Fellow Old Cottonian’s

It gives me great pleasure to inform that in response to our appeal for contributions for the Punjab Flood Relief Fund a number of OC’s from India as well as abroad have sent in their most generous  and in-valuable contributions, details of which I will be mentioning below. Firstly I express my utmost gratitude to all those who have contributed financially as well as otherwise for their compassion  towards this extremely important cause as the victims of the recent floods in Punjab do not only need relief but rehabilitation as well. With the help of some of your invaluable contributions OCA INDIA has been able to provide much needed relief material like drinking water, medicines etc. through Mr. Daljit Singh Gill – Batch 1967 and his companions.

As you all are aware for projects like these any amount of contribution in any form is never enough also the entire relief work is being financed completely from funds contributed by OC’s voluntarily and not through the OCA corpus, so I appeal to all fellow Old Cottonians to please contribute to make this selfless cause a success. Also please be informed that we have decided that the total amount of funds collected by October 30th 2019 will be used for the final execution of this Relief Work.

For the optimum use of this fund we have appointed Brig. H.S. Nagra,9915322277  and Dheeraj Berry, 9814060426 as the Project in Charge to have consultations with the OC volunteers of Punjab to finalise the ideal relief work to be executed. One suggestion that is being considered as of now is to install Commercial RO Water Purifier Plants to provide a permanent solution for the drinking water problem that is going to exist for a long time.

Besides the above detailed contributions there were a few others that were sent directly to provide immediate needed relief material.

1)   Mr. Vijay Bhambri – Batch 1967 transferred an amount of Rs,49500/- directly in the bank account of a Manufacturer of Bottled Drinking Water in Jalandhar. Already this amount has been used to buy much needed drinking water and distributed in various flood affected villages in Punjab.

2)   Mr. Jemini Sharma- Batch 1967 transferred directly in the account of a Medicine supplier in Jalandhar an amount of Rs.5000/- which was used to distribute medicines.

3)   Mr. Daljit Singh Gill – Batch 1967 with his family has contributed an amount of Rs.28000/- which he has spent in purchasing and distributing relief material during his multiple visits to these affected areas. He has been able to get the NGO GOONJ to also send a truck load of relief material like clothes, sanitary napkins, utensils, blankets, school bags, stationery etc. which he has been distributing with other GOONJ volunteers.
