For the last two weeks a team of volunteers from Chatabal in downtown Srinagar have taken upon itself the responsibility of feeding stray dogs in the city.
The team, comprising students and businessmen, which has been running a medical camp in the downtown, started feeding the strays after seeing their deplorable condition. The strays’ main source of food the eateries and hotels had all shut due to lockdown.
There are over 50,000 stray dogs in the city.
While people in Kashmir have been reaching out to the poor and the needy during the lockdown that coincided with the holy month of Ramadan, these volunteers are making a difference in their own right to strays. (IANS)
