HYDERABAD: Robin Hood Army (RHA),  a non-profit voluntary organisation, has lined up a series activities for Independence Day in the city. “We collect leftover food from restaurants and private functions and distribute the same to the needy. RHA is spread over 43 cities in India and 13 countries abroad. In Hyderabad, our team of 300 volunteers is spread over eight chapters. We serve 6,000 people a month on an average through the food we procure from our restaurant partners.

All our donations are only through kind only as we do not accept cash,” says Uma Chilakamarri, a volunteer of RHA.The initiatives on August 15 include enrolling kids in schools by getting donors to pay for their school fees, building toilets in government schools with the help of donors, conducting medical camps in old age homes with the help of doctors who are willing to serve the old people for free, procuring medicines for the HIV patents with the help of donors and teaching handicrafts to the slum women and helping them sell their products by organising exhibitions in gated communities. “Each of these initiatives has been implemented with the help and support from donors,” adds Uma.

“Apart from these initiatives we will be distributing 50,000 cup cakes across Hyderabad to the underprivileged children studying in government schools. These cakes are being donated to us by the Home Bakers and individual donors. The distribution will start at 7 am on August 15. These cakes will be distributed in three zones in the city. Those interested in participating can reach us on their Facebook group Robin Hood Army Hyderabad or call Uma on 9848046880.
