Distribution of woolens among destitute

Over 80000 destitute and elderly people across Delhi - NCR have already been helped in protecting themselves from the biting cold. In addition to distribution of woolens among elderly people, Agewell Foundation has also distributed woolens to destitute and poor living in slums.

             
“It was very difficult for me to deal with bone-chilling cold, as I could not afford adequate woolens to protect my family from cold. Now with these woolens, we too can enjoy warmth during this winter. Thanks to Agewell for such kind of timely help.”
