The NGO, Viswajayam Foundation (founded by Sekar, a resident of Kumaravijayam Flats, Mylapore) distributed 400 Deepavali sweets boxes to Urbaser Sumeet conservancy workers across five civic wards in and around Mylapore.
Each worker received 1/4kg dry fruit punch. The NGO spent about ₹83,000 for this.
Viswajayam Foundation was started in 2013 to provide free housekeeping and sanitation services at the Govt Royapettah Hospital cancer block (all floors), and at The Institute of Child Health (cancer wards).
In addition to the housekeeping services at hospitals, Viswajayam Foundation has been providing and continues to provide free and tasty lunch to about 500 people at Govt Royapettah Hospital and Egmore Children’s Hospital.
Over the past 918 days, Viswajayam has served over 4,00,000 meals, said a member who is part of the NGO’s core team.
The Foundation has also been providing educational scholarships to students and medical treatment support to the needy as well.
