The Wadia Project
Families of ailing people in the hospitals go through hard enough times, but the families at Wadia Hospitals often can't afford the treatment let alone the meals, so we wanted to bring a smile to all families during this time of need.

This initiative began on 13th March 2021 and will continue till 30th June 2022.
Meals Provided: 68
Total Amount Raised: Rs.1,40,000

Khushiyon Ki Diwali
Diwali is known as the festival of lights and happiness. It brings everyone together and spreads joy; but unfortunately, not everyone knows it as we do. There are countless children who don’t understand and know the essence and meaning of Diwali. An ongoing RCMR tradition, Khushiyon Ki Diwali is our flagship project where we spent the Sunday before Diwali with the children of Spark A Change Foundationon where the members take for diyas, lanterns, lights, and many other festive décors to children in different orphanages and spend time with them, trying to make it a happy time for all.
Our mega Independence Day event was bigger with a bigger bang! This year Jasne-E-Azaadi was back with more sub-events like Dance, Declamation, Music, Poetry, and Photography.
Through the event, a lot of individuals got a platform to showcase their talents including singing, playing instruments, poetry, photography, declamation, etc. The quizzes managed to actively involve the attendees in the event. The videos displayed filled the viewers with pride for our country. The event left us with a feeling of love and respect for our country and lived up to the spirit of Independence Day. It also helped foster the Rotary-Rotaract-Interact relationship.
There is not one individual who was not affected by the pandemic. Despite these dangerous conditions, a lot of people had to continue working to meet their financial needs. One group among these were rickshawalas, the lifeline of our city. To show love and appreciation towards them on Valentine’s Day, RCMR partnered with RC Bravehearts to raise funds and to distribute masks and sanitisers among them. It was a feel-good project, ensuring the safety of hundreds of people.
