NGO posts 'dirty contributions' in the name of charity on Facebook


New Delhi, Sep 20: Compassion towards our fellow beings is eroding day by day. The Facebook post by Goonj, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) based in Delhi, proves the same.

The images of contributions they received from the public, posted by Goonj on their official facebook page is indeed disturbing to the core.


The organisation received rotten pooja materials, blood stained undergarments and unwashed utensils and plates. The tiffin boxes passed on as contribution contain left over food. This shows the attitude of people towards charity. They think that in the name of charity, they can dump anything and everything to such organisations.

As a protest to the apathetic attitude towards people, Goonj in their Facebook page posted, saying that they want to sent out a message loud and clear that "they are not a garbage store".

They continued, from rotten pooja material to blood soaked under garments to something which even a kabari won't touch. Please stop insulting the dignity of our team and the recipients and the good giving by hundreds of people.

They also said that it's time to name and shame people who try to pass any garbage and mess in the name of contribution. Kindly help spread the word to keep the faith in humanity intact.

In an attempt to avoid further such incidents, they also posted the guidelines they will follow before accepting any charity.
