Every winter, we donate thousands of blankets/chaddars to underprivileged/homeless humans as well as animals living in the open on the streets. We try our best to reach out to people and strays feeders in Mumbai and other parts of India, wherever we can reach.
This time we decided to donate to IDA.

S&T Blanket Drive at IDA
12 January 2022, ASA NGO gave us the opportunity to donate blankets/chaddars to IDA Mumbai. Undoubtedly, one of the humbling experiences that will change you forever.
It was a big enough and a clean facility unlike. They had many wards like OPD, Pre Birth Control, Post Birth Control, Operation Room, Accident ward, Recovery Ward, Puppy Pen, Blind Dogs ward and so on.
All the animals were well kept and well taken care of. You need a strong heart to see some of the animals with injuries and maggot wounds, but they certainly looked happy and the wounds were recovering.
Here are some of the pics:
This is a blind Puupy that was rescued by IDA. It would not survive on the streets. Thanks to IDA it will have a decent life now.
This is Chui Mui, a three legged cat. Lost its leg in an accident on the road. She is now a permanent resident at IDA, Mumbai.
