The Punjabi Association Of South Florida organized a Grammy Raat event in efforts to raise funds for Nirmal Foundlings based in Patiala, Punjab. This orphanage was started by Harjeet Kaur when she felt that there was a huge need in the community where unwanted/underprivileged children could have a safe place to live and a chance for an education. She initially started by keeping kids in her own home but as the need grew she constructed a building for the orphanage. She also had a crib installed outside the building where parents could discreetly but safely drop off their unwanted babies.
What Harjeet Kaur is doing for the community and the children is immeasurable. We at Punjabi Association of South Florida are grateful to have had this opportunity to be able to help. We are very proud and grateful to all the people who helped us exceed our goal and we were able to raise over $7000.
