As part of its fund-raising programme this Deepavali, the MILT Charitable Trust, which looks after nearly 50 boys at the Snehalaya Children's Home, is selling Deepavali Crackers Gift Boxes, sourced directly from Ayyan Fireworks in Sivakasi.

“We will utilise the proceeds to meet the needs of residents at two Snehalaya homes in Bangalore where many are yearning to do their high school and degree courses,” said C. Grahadurai, Chairman, MILT Charitable Trust. “We have ensured that the firecracker manufacturer has not used any child labour. There is also a 75 per cent discount,” he added.

The MILT Charitable Trust not only provides food and shelter for the boys at Snehalaya, but also educates them. Call 98453-29713 or email
