Donations for relief to the victims of the 
communal carnage in Gujarat 

On behalf of the Citizens for Justice and Peace, Mumbai, Ms. Dolly Thakore (Phone No: 493 7071) has made arrangements with several petrol pumps – for the second Sunday in succession -- to collect contributions/donations from citizens meant for the victims of the Gujarat carnage. The list of petrol pumps is given below. From the latest feedback which we have received from Ahmedabad, the greatest need is for foodgrains – wheat, rice, daals, oil. This is to be reached to those thousands of daily wage earners (outside the relief camps) who are unable to come out of their localities and work because of the situation still prevailing in Ahmedabad and because of which they and their family members are facing starvation conditions.

Some citizens who have contacted us have said their would prefer to contribute through cheques or cash so that the foodgrains could be purchased in Ahmedabad. This of course is a decision left to the donors. We would like to inform everyone, however, that an Ahmedabad-based transport company had shipped the collections of Sunday, May 5 free of cost and they have promised to do the same again on Sunday, May 12.

Citizens are urged to reach their contributions to volunteers who are going to be stationed between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 12 at any of the following petrol pumps in Mumbai. 

Contributions through cheques should be made in favour of –

‘Citizens for Justice and Peace’ and handed over to the volunteers. Please remember to put your own address on the envelopes to enable us to send you a receipt, unless you wish to donate anonymously.
