In the last week of March 2020, the University appealed to you to come forward and contribute to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to your support, we got inspired to launch ‘DU Care for Neighbour’ programme to feed the hungry in the neighborhoods of our North and South campuses and also contributed one day’s salary to the relief efforts.
We have come to realize that we are in the midst of the biggest battle that human civilization has fought in recent centuries. Life as we know it has come to a standstill. There has been an unprecedented increase in the numbers of have-nots in every part of the world.
In these circumstances, it’s incumbent upon us to raise the level of social consciousness. We can set an example of extraordinary sensitivity by contributing a percentage of our gross salary for a few months to The PM CARES Fund for the welfare of those affected by the pandemic.
By doing so, we can at least try to repay an unquantifiable debt to those who have nurtured us and thus become the beacon of hope in their lives.
I urge you to contribute to the best of your capacity by using consent/authorization form (http://app.du.ac.in/covid19).
You can make a positive difference in people’s lives through this contribution. Don’t miss to water your roots. Let the University be known not only for its academic excellence but also for its philanthropic flagrance.
May we all grow in wisdom and heart, and emerge more resilient than ever before.
