SOS ... lets help Friendicoes ... :)

When I first moved to NCR (for my readers out of India ... NCR is the national capital region) ... one of the most amazing things I saw was a Friendicoes Ambulance rushing through traffic. I was completely floored.Yeah ! sure we all have lots of compassion for other creatures ... but when those feelings make you stop and look at an animal in need ... you feel so helpless. Suddenly your world of options evaporates. Why I say so ... happened to me last week. And I found myself frantically calling all my friends I could think of ... and ... finally, thanks to a dear friend ... guess what came to help the dog that was in an accident ... my most amazing sight again ... a Friendicoes Ambulance from their animal sanctuary in Gurgaon.
 So, when end of the week I see them post on their facebook page ... here ... that they...  FRIENDICOES UNDER THREAT OF CLOSURE DUE TO LACK OF FUNDS (please share this post) ... (yes, they are an NGO, right) ... it sure feels horrible ... and I do hope thay can get the 42 Lakhs they need by the end of 2 weeks ... to stay open. The latest update says they already have shut down the night ambulance service ... :(((
My simple logic ... they are out there doing all that, what we'd personally love to do and stand up for ... so the least I can do is support them ... every little bit of financial help will make lots of difference to them.

 As I google to share some of their images ... these popped up and I do remember them from the Uttrakhand disaster time ... they were up there along with their sister concern ... Wildlife SOS ... helping animals in need... :) There is also a story you can find on their website about their work in Andamans during the Tsunami ... :) ... you know it feels good to see what they do.

I loved to read the story of blindey ... the dog in the picture above ... who lives at their shelter in Delhi with many many of the other dogs that call that shelter their home ... I don't want to imagine the fate of these babies if they loose their shelter.

 You know what you should drop over to their facebook page ... here ... and go through their photo's to read about all the animals that come to them ... and their treatments ... adoption ... :)

I am glad they are there for those who may not be able to ask for help otherwise ... for people like you and me when we want to help and don't know how.
While they are looking to raise the 42 Lakhs they need ... any bit that you feel you can spare helps ...  I  post their details below ... hoping this post helps  if possible. If you ever pondered over how far you every single Rupee will go ... this may be a great time to find your answer ... :)
You can simply send over your contribution online ... find their bank details below ... doesn't get any more easier to do something good ... that makes a difference and gives a good nights sleep too ... :))

 Their request post on the FB page ...
This post is not to create panic or to distress anyone but to bring the reality of the financial situation at Friendicoes to the public.
Many times in the past we have faced financial crisis but this is the worst by far. If we do not raise some funds quickly Friendicoes ambulance service and shelter is under serious threat of shutting down services if not permanently then at least for a period o...f time.

We just finished paying off the salaries for July.
But we have 60 lakhs owed to medicine suppliers and another 12 lakhs to different food suppliers. That is a total of 72 lakhs plus a few more other odd bills.

Luckily or unluckily the fuel station do not give us any credit for ambulance fuel so we do not have any fuel bills due.
MCD owes us 30 lakhs for the spay/neuter program but even after adding that to the balance we still owe 42 lakhs+ to suppliers.

If we do not raise some funds quickly we will have no choice but to shut down all shelter services for a few months till we can balance the accounts.
If anyone wishes to help us but would like to pay the suppliers directly please drop us a mail to gs.friendicoes@gmail.com.
