Reaching out with timely help for the deprived people and engaging the less fortunate children are the highlights of the all-women RC Gargis Kolhapur, RID 3170. The Rotarians donated 75 new blankets and bags full of used clothes in good condition for the migrant population who work in the sugarcane fields in the city.

“Their children don’t even have proper clothes to protect them from the winter chill. Most of them could not attend school as they have to go along with their parents in search of work,” says Sujata Lohia, Club President.

In another initiative, the club members are taking care of the education needs of 35 special children at the Swayam School and, along with members of Interact Club of Maitreya of Kolhapur Public School, ­distributed white canes for the
40 visually-challenged children of Andh Shala.
