Through this welfare initiative, DLF Foundation has once again raised the bar to become one of the top humanitarian organizations to extend a fine tuned timely help to the needy slum dwellers who

As part of the relief effort, the move aims at benefitting 150-200 needy slum dwellers, where basic requisites such as mosquito repellants, bed-sheets, shoes, slippers, floor mats etc have been supplied to them, over and above clothes & medicines. This move aimed at providing disaster relief & restoration to the slum dwellers is a mark of the foundation’s impeccable commitment towards underprivileged sections of the society.
