Hemkunt Foundation also made an urgent appeal that to continue helping everyone in need, they would need access to 20,000 sq. ft. land at or near the City Centre of Gurgaon.
For the last year or so and more specifically in the last 2 months when the havoc wreaked by the second wave of COVID-19 was at its peak, NGOs have been at the vanguard of helping citizens in dire need. One such NGO- Hemkunt Foundation posted a video on Twitter today describing an abhorrent act of damage to their oxygen centre by local goons.
In the video, Community Development Director at Hemkunt Foundation, Harteerath Singh said “Some nasty group of people and local goons have forcefully asked us to vacate our space where we have our patients. They’ve torn down our tents, our banners and boards are broken and there’s a lot of damage that has been done.”
We need your help!

DC will help them in getting another land. Attackers be punished” he said tagging the account of Chief Minister of Haryana.
