A few days ago, river Satluj went overflown and there was a flood in so many areas near Jalandhar. People of those villages lost many of their valuable things. Some of them also lost their shelter, their pet animals as well. With water all over in the nearby areas, they could barely survive, and moreover, they neither had food nor any water to drink. Many kind-hearted people of Punjab went to help them, where a student organization of Lovely Professional University also contributed their efforts.
“Hands which raise to help others are better than prayers of so many peoples.”
Keeping these words in mind, Student Organization Aashray Crossroad Helping Hands successfully organized a Flood-Relief Camp – “RAAHAT” on 1st September 2019. In this, they distributed clothes, food items, shoes, sanitary pads, and many other necessities to the flood-affected people of Lohian Khas and nearby villages of Jalandhar. Students of Lovely Professional University also contributed to a huge extent to provide relief to needy. The blessings that Aashray Army had got from the people were priceless. Just seeing the smiles on their faces was enough to keep us going and serving society.
A day before the camp, all members of this organization worked very hard to collect food items, clothes, shoes, sanitary pads, empty water bottles from students in hostels of Lovely Professional University. Students after knowing about this initiative were applauding the students of Aashray and happily donated eatables like bread, biscuits, and bread. Many of the students also donated clothes, empty water bottles, and other necessities.
On the day of Camp, members of Aashray visited Lohian Khas and nearby villages. Enquired the people over there about the poor conditions some days before and what all problems they are facing now. The positivity which they had even after losing so many things in the flood was appreciable and tremendous.
Students of Aashray put their 100% efforts, worked very hard and with the proper dedication to helping the needy. They distributed all the collected items, clothes, food and all necessities to needy.
In earlier times also Aashray honestly worked for many activities to help society in their best possible ways. The blessings we got from the people were priceless. The smiles on their faces made our day and were more than enough to motivate us to serve society and keep us going and cherish society.
