Chetna offers assistance to the international students of India
In face of COVID-19, everyone is facing many challenges. However, international students are facing even greater hardships. To help with alleviating some of these challenges, Chetna Association of Canada plans to extend help to students in Vancouver by offering basic groceries during the month of April this year.
"Dr. Ambedkar, Father of India's Constitution and founder of many institutions such as Reserve Bank of India, was also an international student who faced many hardships. As birth anniversary falls on April 14, we decided it would be more fitting to celebrate his 129th birth anniversary year by offering help this year to international students from India", announced Surinder Ranga, president of Chetna Association of Canada.
To register for help or to volunteer for this cause, please e-mail at email@example.com
or phone Mr. Surinder Ranga at 604-657-1778.

Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar was born on 14 April 1891 and was popularly known as Babasaheb. He is most well-known and remembered as the principal architect of the Indian Constitution being the Chairman of the Drafting Committee. He was independent India's first law minister, a social reformer, jurist, economist, author and a scholar of comparative religions. He campaigned for the rights of the downtrodden and the underprivileged, while also supporting the rights of women and labour. He was a scholar par excellence, a philosopher and a true nationalist.
