Clothes Distribution in Rural and Remote areas in India
In India 60-70 % of the people living in rural or tribal areas do not have adequate clothes to cover their bodies. Distribution of clothes in such areas is the newest initiative of Saidham. Clothes that remain idle in city homes as they become old fashioned or whose colors have faded or no longer have the right fit, become a very important resource for the underprivileged population residing in remote areas. Donated clothes are sorted, washed, repaired and then packed to be dispatched for distribution. Truck-loads of clothes have already been sent from Saidham to partner NGOs and other organization who then have been distributing in the remote areas of Jharkhand, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Haryana. The cotton clothes that are unwearable are recycled and made into sanitary napkins which are also sent for distribution along with the clothes. The clothes that are not deemed fit for any of the above uses are also sent for the cattle and livestock that might need it to treat wounds. Water is life Along with distribution of clothes; Sai Dham encourages the beneficiaries to undertake sustainable community development programs. Construction of check dams, pond cleaning, well digging, tree plantation is undertaken and in lieu of such activities clothes are distributed. This way they earn their clothes with dignity while also preserving their local environment.
