HOPE and HIVE (one of our NGO partners) work in partnership to deliver a 24 hour, 7 days a week response unit, compiled of social workers, who respond immediately to those in need. The Unit attends to victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, human rights violations and medical needs. The Unit particularly focuses on those most vulnerable throughout Kolkata’s streets. Where possible and appropriate, the Unit reunites and restores individuals with their families. It facilitates access to medical care and through strong referral networks, places at-risk individuals into appropriate shelters and homes. The Unit also receives calls from the Kolkata Police and Fire Department, to respond to crises calls throughout the city.
Helping children and families in crisis 24/7
This project involves night rounds in order to help and where necessary rescue children and their families in Kolkata.
The HOPE ambulance is a beacon of light. Help us to keep this light shining.
