Fund Raising For FFC

Funds has been difficult for FFC as every month FFC volunteers contribute within themselves to raise fund for their activities as there is no fixed channel of sponsors or donors for FFC. FFC volunteers took this platform of Marathon to win the prize money in order to do much more for their slum children and other activities.

Friends For Care volunteers took part in an event organised in Nagpur named "Nagpur International Marathon for Peace and Non-violence on Shahid Diwas" held in the orange city Nagpur.
