This one is for the animal lovers, and if you do have time to volunteer. Although not directly related, a lot of the Friendicoes staff are Nepali, and have therefore been called away due to destruction and damage to their families and properties. This has led to 40 percent less staff on ground to help with their shelters in Delhi and Gurgaon. May we request you to extend a helping hand, and reach out as you see fit. Friendicoes does its best to help abandoned pets, and stray animals, and can use all the help you can give.
