ABOUT US

What started as a localized destitute-addressing trust back in 2004 has come of age today with the emergence of the full-fledged crisis-management body. A brainchild of Srinagar Samaritan, the Social Reforms Organisation, Kashmir (SRO-Kashmir) eventually got many patrons making it a pan-Kashmir welfare body. And this resolve is already achieving its objective of helping the needy and those caught in critical situations.

 

Before becoming a household name, the 17-year journey of the NGO touched countless lives in the valley. From giving succor to the 2005-quake hit populace to spearheading relief and rehabilitation works during the 2014 deluge, the NGO has always led from the front during various crises.

 

Come the viral spring of 2020, and the NGO had become one of the reliable alternatives for the lockdown-ridden society. The joining of well-meaning people only surged its ranks and made it a countable welfare body. Attending the critical operations especially during the midnight hours made it hope amid despair for Kashmiris caught in an emergency. Those running the operations had already sensed the Covid calamity and built the desirable response with the help of experts.

 

Living up to the adage—“tough times determine character”—SRO-Kashmir never lowered its guards in tackling the warlike situation. Mobilizing men and machinery, it saved several critical situations in the valley.

 

Initiatives like “Food for Poor” and “Oxygen Kashmir” became one of the handy initiatives during the tough times. Our organization has procured and dispensed more than 220 Oxygen Concentrators and 300 high flow oxygen cylinders to patients at home & in hospitals, thus relieving a sizeable burden on Hospitals in Kashmir. We have 35 NIV machines (BiPAP & CPAP) which are helping many people to recover from serious pulmonary ailments. At any given point in time, more than 350 patients are on our Oxygen Support. Our Ambulances cover hundreds of Kilometers daily in ferrying patients To & Fro all FREE of cost. Distribution of around 2000 food kits good enough for the full month for a family of 5 among 1500 poor families whose headmen have either been rendered jobless in the last one year or are battling the perpetual poverty has made our NGO part of the larger destitution management system in Kashmir.

 

Today, with the support of people, SRO Kashmir has become a trustworthy name in Kashmir, which remains just a phone call away after establishing a Toll-Free number: 18001022146. We receive more than 400 daily calls on our Toll-Free Line & Mobile phones. Saving breaths remains one of the top priorities of the body during the second viral wave.

 

To continue these efforts, the NGO has touched many milestones and is setting new statistical records and goals. And to make its operations and functions transparent, the welfare body keeps sharing its audit report with the public on its social media platforms, where it is tackling emergency situations and SOS with sense and sensibility.

With the inclusion of professionals and influencers, the body has only become a beacon of hope during these hopeless times.

 

Clearly, the journey from SRO Srinagar to SRO Kashmir has already come a long way.
