Two prominent NGOs, police, schoolteachers and others have come forward to help 20 families rendered homeless in a fire in Karaya on January 26.
The fire that was reported around 5am at a Gurusaday Dutta Road vehicle spare parts godown spread rapidly and engulfed the homes in the adjoining slum. Hundreds had to flee to save their lives and were left shivering out in the cold.
Karaya Police then reached out to IHA Foundation and HIVE India for help. “We tried to help first by serving them food and other essentials till the time their homes were rebuilt,” said Satnam Singh Ahluwalia, chairman of IHA Foundation, adding, “Once the crisis subsided, each of the families were provided with a complete set of utensils along with a month’s ration to help bring their lives back on track.”

Nitaidas Mukherjee, who leads HIVE India efforts, said, “With so many people out in the open, including women and children, it was a challenge to help and rehabilitate them. Many people came forward to help. We got help from police and local MLA Subrata Mukherjee. That helped mitigate the crisis at hand as the state helped shift the victims, to a shelter. Now, several of these homeless people are rebuilding their homes.”

Sri Sri Academy principal Suvina Shunglu said, “We received a call for help. The teachers and staffers stepped in immediately to arrange whatever they could, including food and clothes. All this was done within a day. Our students work throughout the year to help in such crises.”

“We are trying the best we can with the resources available to us, we are thankful to the authorities for allowing us to serve during this hour of need,” said Raghav Kapur, restaurateur and member of IHA Foundation.

Mukherjee, incidentally, is back to work after battling Covid. He spent several days in a ventilator. “It was on the morning of Republic Day that we received a call to help these people. We reached out immediately, like we do in case of other incidents.”
