Ek MUTTHi DAAN
No one Sleeps Hungry – A Movement… An Initiative
The Ek Mutthi Daan campaign program has been drawn from the life and times of Founder Chancellor of MRIU, Dr. O P Bhalla. The Ek Mutthi Daan campaign was started on March 28, 2014, Friday. Chief patron of MRIU, Mrs. Satya Bhalla inaugurated the campaign by donating the first handful of rice towards the ‘Ek Mutthi Daan’. Through this campaign, the foundation had urged everyone in the MREI family to donate just a handful of rice. As a humble beginning, 1500 kgs rice collected during March- May 2014 had been donated to an NGO: ‘Prayaas’. Ever since then, the Ek Mutthi Daan initiative has been taken up by all constituents of the MREI family, to keep the noble movement going, so that ‘no one sleeps hungry’.
The foundation stands firmly committed to the cause of mass welfare and instilling the spirit of social and moral responsibility amongst the students. Through this campaign, all constituents of the MREI family have come together to donate for the underprivileged sections of society. Till date approx. 9730 kg rice, 700 kg wheat flour has been contributed and donated to following NGOs Prayas, Sai Milan, Naz Foundation.
