HYDERABAD: Helping Hands “Donation Box,” a novel initiative by Zone info Media supported by Lions Club ECIL - Elite, was launched in near Kushaiguda Police Station this week. Donors can give unused (but usable) medicines, toys, clothes, books, stationery, and any other utilities which will reach the needy through this initiative.

The initiative seeks to evoke community response on sensitive issues like health, poverty, concern for the under privileged who require a helping hand from the larger society.

Principal architect of the initiative, S.Kushal, says, “We often come across people who want to donate unused items in their house to the needy, but don’t know where to donate. Based on our earlier experiences we thought of having a point which will act as a sensitising agent to the society.”

So he set up the box after deliberating the installation process with government bodies like the Kushaiguda police and the Lions Club ECIL - Elite who supported the initiative.

The Lions Club ECIL-Elite District Governor Lion Dr Sunaina Aminha inaugurated the box and appreciated the initiative. ACP Syed Rafeeq said that their department would extend their maximum support to the activity.

The youth promised support to Zone Adds, the Implementation partner. The ad agency has been promoting “Donate Un-used medicines” since May 2015.
