Jamia Students Collect and Deliver Relief Aid to Nepal Embassy

Youth for People, a Jamia law students group, has informed Jamia Journal that on Wednesday, April 29, they delivered all the donations they had collected in the past few days for the people affected by the Nepal earthquake, to the Nepal embassy in New Delhi.

According to Sahil Ahmed, a member of Youth for People, the Nepal embassy people were only accepting relief aid in physical goods and not money; so they used the money to buy blankets and tents and added that to the collection.
