Summary

There are more homeless people in India than the entire population of Mauritius. In fact, if you gathered all of India's homeless people and put them all in a new country, its population would be larger than that of 83 countries. Delhi is homelessness capital with three districts among India's worst six. With the onset of winters in Delhi, these homeless people face life threatening cold climate. IGSSS's Winter Of Hope project is supporting the Delhi's homeless poor to survive harsh winters.

Challenge

Homeless in Delhi, India face life threatening cold wave during winters. According to statistics, nearly one in every thousand Delhiites are homeless poor. Due to the poor conditions of Delhi's shelter homes, they prefer sleeping on roads risking their health and lives. Delhi witnessed deaths of around 3347 homeless people in the year 2016 alone as stated in report by Center of Holistic Development. Homeless in Delhi (especially women and children) face unhygienic conditions and hunger.

Solution

Indo-Global Social Service Society is working on the issues of urban poor at policy level with governments and supporting their causes by directly working with them. Our Winter Of Hope project aims to provide nutritious meals to women and children living on streets, hygiene and sanitation kits in and around shelter homes, organize health check-ups, access to safe drinking water and distribute blankets, quilts and clothes to the homeless. This will provide immediate relief to Delhi's homeless.

Long-Term Impact

Our advocacy efforts with local government to improve the conditions of shelter homes and effective housing policy for urban poor will help these underprivileged sections of society to live a life of freedom and dignity. Support with necessary items will bring immediate relief to homeless poor and help them survive harsh winters.
