With an active 800 member team, the foundation has managed to touch the life of 1000 families with 15 different campaigns, Mission Hands Together being one of them.

This campaign has been a huge relief to a wide stratum of people, especially the daily workers who faced the ugliest consequences due the widespread of coronavirus. Financially handicapped due to a complete nationwide lockdown, several people lost the liquidity to buy the basic necessities such as hygiene and safety products. Through 'Mission Join Hands', Our Swapna has lent an extra hand of help to these individuals by providing them with essentials along with happiness!

How can you help?

The foundation urges every individual to donate a small sum of ₹10. This small amount is lined up to create a huge ripple effect, roping in more and more people to be a part of the programme. This will help to create a handsome kitty which will be then used for the purpose of several welfare activities. People can also reach out to the Foundation to be a volunteer and be actively involved in changing lives with their small yet significant efforts.
