Statement & APPEAL FOR DONATION TO AIKS EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND
10th June, 2020.
Dear Friends, Namaskaar,
As you are aware, COVID 19 Pandemic has created havoc in the entire world and destroyed even the most powerful economies. Besides causing huge mayhem in societies the world over, it has also destroyed individual livelihoods, thereby rendering numerous low-income households vulnerable.
In our community also everyone is not well off and many displaced people live on the margins of the society. Lately you all must have seen/heard about various appeals being circulated on the social media requesting for financial/other assistance.
Many of us in AIKS have individually responded to such appeals and made our own humble contribution on various occasions, including to PM Cares Fund. However, presently there is no system in place to render such assistance in a systemic and focused manner, with transparency and visible accountability.
We at AIKS received many representations to handle this issue. It has taken us some time to deliberate on various aspects of this important issue as it involves huge responsibility, commitment and accountability. However, after a thorough in-house debate, finally a decision has been taken that being a leading community organization, AIKS cannot turn away from this noble task, irrespective of the difficulties involved. We have, therefore, started a drive to collect donation from public, particularly from members of our community for this humanitarian cause. To begin with all AIKS Core group members have started making their humble contribution towards this fund.
In view of the foregoing, can I request you to kindly donate to this noble cause by remitting your contribution to the following account of AIKS:
Account Name: All India Kashmiri Samaj
Bank Name: Punjab National Bank, Vinay Nagar, New Delhi.
Account No: 0151000100442202, IFSC Code: PUNB0015100
(Donations to AIKS are exempt from Income Tax under Section 80 G)
AIKS assures the donors that every detail concerning this Fund will be uploaded on our website regularly for ensuring utmost transparency. Kindly inform AIKS through Email_Id: firstname.lastname@example.org / Mb: 99581-54848 about any remittances made immediately after the transaction is done.
Hoping for your cooperation,
Stay Safe and Namaskar
Tej K Tikoo – President, AIKS
APPEAL FOR DONATION TO AIKS EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND
23rd June, 2020
AIKS had recently issued an Appeal, addressed only to some of our friends and well wishers, soliciting their donations into our just-established AIKS Emergency Relief Fund. The appeal enclosed herewith is self-explanatory. In the short span of time since the issue of the appeal on 10 June 2020, we have already collected Rs 1,36,200 /-, out of which an amount of Rs 19,000/- has been spent on rendering assistance to our needy community members. We would like to mention that these funds will not be used for rendering medical assistance as that service is already being rendered by KMECT in an eminently successful and efficient manner.
AIKS is now uploading this appeal on all community platforms to solicit wide-spread participation from the community at large to help those of us who, due to COVID Pandemic, have lost their livelihood or are facing financial stress.
Stay Safe and Namaskar!
Tej K Tikoo – President, AIKS
