Swaminarayan Akshardham Mandir,
New Delhi, in association with the Delhi Government launched
'AAP KI RASOI', a campaign to make Delhi Hunger Free, on 16
April 2008 at the Nizamuddin Night Shelter.The campaign was
inaugurated by Smt. Sheila Dikshit, Chief Minister of Delhi.
As there is a big number of destitute
people who find it extremely difficult to earn even one single
meal a day, the Government of Delhi has requested NGOs and corporate
houses to provide meals to these people once a day in the afternoon.
Nutritious freshly cooked food will be served once a day to
about 600 needy people, mainly women and children.
The BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha is the first to start the programme in association with
the Delhi Government. The Chief Minister Smt. Sheila Dikshit
personally inspected and distributed lunch to many people. Dr.
Yoganand Shashtri, Minister of Health, Family Welfare and Social
Welfare (Delhi Government) and area Councilor were also present
at the launch.
