Sana talks about her NGO
During a conversation with News18, Kanak’s granddaughter Sana Saxena talks about her NGO. She says she’s always loved dogs, but it’s only been two years since she started her organization. He always wanted to do something for stray dogs, but he wanted to start it on a very small scale. In 2019, with the help and support of family, she started her own organization and took care of stray dogs in Vaishali area of Ghaziabad.
What is the task of the organization?
Through this organization he takes care of stray dogs. Through this organization, he not only feeds the stray dogs, but also provides treatment to the sick dogs and also provides them with warm clothes in the bitter cold of Delhi.
How does an NGO work?
He explains that his NGO is completely run by his family. He takes care of all the work together with his parents and grandmother. However, he says that whenever more funds are needed, he raises funds with the help of ‘fundraiser’ on Instagram. Little by little, this little campaign of his is getting bigger now. Seeing his work, there are people who definitely join him.
Life changed with the arrival of ‘Coco’
He explains that this change in his life began with the arrival of a new guest in his home. She always wanted to have dogs and when she expressed her desire to her relatives, the relatives objected. She says her family’s objection was also justified because she and her father would have gone to their respective jobs, her mother and grandmother would have to take care of the dog.
But when she brought home her dog ‘Coco’ five years ago, no one showed any interest in her family for the first few days. But after a week or two, gradually everyone started falling in love with him. According to him, his grandmother fell in love with ‘Coco’ in no time and then started taking care of him like a small child. During this talk, her grandmother said that ‘Coco’ is having fun, but she doesn’t know what will happen to millions of stray dogs. Therefore, we all had sympathy for stray dogs and then we decided to do something.
He says: “Grandma also wanted to contribute and has always been very fond of cooking. So we all decided together that he will cook food every day and together we will deliver this food to these street dogs.”
