Whether you raise $20 or $2000, it all makes a difference in the fight against poverty. Thank you.


When flooding struck Uttarakhand in India in 2013, Varun Mehandiratta strongly felt the need to help fellow Indians in their hour of need. In response, he organised Saarang, an Indian Cultural Extravaganza in Wellington that raised $3000 towards Oxfam's Indian Floods Appeal.
