United Way Kolkata believes in “walking the talk” in our support of Women’s Empowerment. And what better way to do it than to celebrate Women’s Day with those “special and beautiful” women who have been bruised, battered, broken, forsaken, abused and abandoned by people they called their own. They not only lost their family, their place, but also their “mind”. But with some support and help, they are fighting back again to find themselves. UWK salutes their spirit and celebrated this day over a lunch treat on Women’s Day.

We thank our volunteers who joined us on that day to be a part of this occasion. But the journey doesn’t end here. Please reach out and partner us to restore their dignity as a human being and make them self dependent. Support their rehabilitation with your contribution and support.

UWK partnered with Iswar Sankalpa for this noble cause.

Birthday with a difference!

United Way Kolkata celebrated the birthdays of Nur Hossain, Raj Sk, Rishika Manna, Sumaiya Khatun, Samiun Islam – children of February with their friends and family, the difference being that these little ones were confined to the hospital bed of their Cancer Ward.

Still sprightly and mostly unaware of their condition, they enthusiastically cut the cake and opened their gifts like all kids do.

UWK spend Saturday morning celebrating their spirit with the cooperation of the staff and doctors of the Cancer centre.

UWK was supported in its noble cause by individual volunteers who also contributed their time and spread the cheer.

If you wish to join us, support us or celebrate your birthday a bit differently, do connect with Dipanwita Das @ 8927981881 or through our website / facebook.
