Navimumbai Swayamsevi Sanghatnanche Vyaspith have teemed up with the NGO Forum Navi Mumbai and The Thane-Belapur Industries Association (TBIA) to co-ordinate relief efforts so that aid can reach the remotest corners of Navi Mumbai, Panvel, Thane-Kalwa, Badlapur, Diva areas , where affected people are suffering due to unhygienic conditions, and acute shortage of food grains ,water supply, clothing, educational books, notebooks, pens, pencils, mats, bedsheets , anti-biotic medicines and plastic tarpaulin sheets. It is essential that these disaster ravaged areas be supported by one and all. For this purpose, the Ngo's and industries have come together to appeal to the citizens of Navi Mumbai and Mumbai: To donate generously so that these essential needs can
be met with at the earliest. The members of all the three bodies have agreed to designate collection and distribution centers in each node so that the NGO's
from the respective collection zones will find it easier to collect the required materials and distribute them quickly to the affected areas. Listed below are the collection centers in and around Navi Mumbai.

   So far the Ngo's have been tackling areas in kalwa, Thane, Badlapur, Diva, Panvel and in these areas aid has been disbursed for the interim period. There are
regions in Navi Panvel, Ghansoli, CBD, Kharghar, Kalamboli, Digha, Airoli where aid has been just a fraction of what is required. The NGO's are trying their best to alleviate this need but find it extremely difficult to generate funds and collections for this purpose. This appeal is for all those who have a conscience and want to contribute for the betterment of society. Please help!!!!
