At the upcoming TCS World 10k in Bangalore, SICHREM is running to enable the Good Samaritans of Bangalore, who are reporting against Human Rights violations.

 SICHREM has been running a Helpline and Help Network in Bangalore for a few years.

  • It helps detect violations of human rights in our city, such as domestic abuse of women, denial of education to students, and torture of victims.
  • Atleast one case a day is actually solved with legal intervention and individual support.
  • Most of these cases are reported through anonymous callers, who are certainly the Good Samaritans of Bangalore.

To keep this Helpline going strong, we’re raising funds to meet running costs:

  1. Phone calls – SICHREM returns all calls, and spends 30-60 min with each caller to establish the violation and to get the right address.
  2. Legal support – The helpline is manned by a senior advocate to take calls from Monday to Friday. Court expenses are also funded, since victims are not in a position to do this.
  3. Administration expenses such as documentation resource, travel and conveyance, etc.

Join us as a Runner.
