RAW NTR- A yearlong program to feed the poor and the marginalized
One NGO based out of Telangana that has taken up the cause of feeding poor and marginalized people is RAW NTR (NTR Helping hands) that prides itself on being an organization that follows the ideology of NT Rama Rao.
The Coronavirus has affected everyone, but it has disproportionately affected the already vulnerable section of the society and has rendered them helpless. To help this vulnerable population, many NGOs and civil society activists have stepped up. One NGO based out of Telangana that has taken up the cause of feeding poor and marginalized people is RAW NTR (NTR Helping hands) that prides itself on being an organization that follows the ideology of NT Rama Rao. NT Rama Rao, former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, and one of the most popular actors in the Southern belt of India, always believed in the principle of ‘Service to mankind’. This NGO was his dream, and the people who believed in him are turning every stone to ensure that no person sleeps hungry in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
