A club of north Kolkata has distributed clothes to over 500 orphan children from different orphanage in the city ahead of the Durga puja.
Repeating the noble gesture for eight consecutive years, Uttar Kolkata Udayer Pathe distributed new clothes to 350 children of ‘The Refuge’ yesterday where former city Police Commissioner Goutam Mohan Chakraborty and theatre and television personality Debshankar Halder were present.
Clothes were distributed to another 170 children of “The Calcutta Orphanage”.
“We have been doing this for eight years. We feel that these children have the right to enjoy the Durga Pujas like everybody else. So we have taken this initiative,” executive member of the club Diptiman Das said.
The club also has plans to distribute new clothes to the needy children in the Sundarbans, he said.
