This needs to be mentioned that the support work was initiated when people we know from the area called us saying the women need clothes and pads. We thought of putting up the Facebook call as our own available resources were not enough to reach out to so many people. As we progressed, we also received calls for baby food.
Here is an approximate financial statement till now.
Total donations received: Rs. 158283 + contribution from PBET and WLTC Rs. 20000=
Expense: Rs.148426 (total)
Panties (for women and girls): Rs. 87952
Amul Milk and pithaguri (for babies): Rs.13494
Sanitary pads: Rs. 22080
Transport (from guwahti to Jorhat and Jorhat to Bagjan): Rs. 24900
Remaining: Rs. 29, 857
The remaining amount will be given to the organisers in Guijan camp to purchase goods for
people. Due to lack of time and resources we could not go to Guijan camp.
The final expense statement will be shared within a week.
We would like to mention that the entire operation from call, procurement and distribution was handled by a team of 10 women and 2 men from PBET and WLTC in Jorhat and Guwahati.
With this we close our support work in Baghjan. Please do not transfer any donations to our
account further for this purpose.
We thank everybody once more.
