A Community Drug Take-Back Program

This year, one of the unique initiative which was launched by the local NGO, Cause for Change, is to collect the Unused but Usable medicines, sort them and then distribute them to the health camps, NGOs who organise rural clinics, etc.

Joydip Paul and Mritunjoy Bhattacharjee, who run Cause for Change, are organising the collection drive by placing medicine drop-boxes in 15 Pooja Pandal's across the city. They have also run a collection drive in Telco Colony and in Sakchi Area with the help about 15 volunteers from the Baridih High School.

(and if you want to contribute or run a collection drive for them, you can call up Joydip Paul (72 50 27 19 37) or Mrintunjay Bhattacharjee (91 62 33 52 00) - causeforchange[at]hotmail[dot]com
