For a noble cause, a group of students from different areas of Kashmir have started a community where they collect used books, clothes, food and distribute it among the needy people.

Akhua- e- Kashmir is a community which was started by a small group of students of Srinagar during the initial period of Covid-19 but today the community has around 200 students who belong to different regions and are working together to help the needy.

Muhammad Ammar, founder of the community said that he and his friends started a student community last year during the lockdown, when the financial condition of many underprivileged families was deteriorating due to the sudden lockdown.


“ Eventually our number increased from four to around 200 and now we are Kashmir's largest student body working for the underprivileged and poor people of Kashmir,” Ammar said.

“ The best part is that we've students belonging to different religions working for the same cause.”

Ammar said that the community has helped around one thousand individuals so far and are supporting widows every month with food, clothes, free books to orphans and other essentials.

“ We are also distributing free sanitary napkins to spread awareness regarding menstrual hygiene, as it has many stigmas attached to it,” he said.

“ All of this is done by the students who are 18 to 20 years old and we haven't taken any monetary help from people and utilized our own pocket money,” Ammar said.

Ammar said this is the cause for people and is also developing a civic sense amongst the youth.

“ We are sending a message that it doesn't take money to help the needy, even a child can help and care for people,” he said.
