Shaurya Khanna started this petition to Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi

Pollution in India is 15 times higher than the acceptable threshold! The air we breathe in big cities in India is equivalent to smoking 10 cigarettes a day. Indian citizens have their average life span cut down by 3 years and have higher chances of obtaining other respiratory diseases like asthma and lung cancer.

As a 16-year-old Indian boy residing in USA, I visit India every year to see my family. Each time I land at the New Delhi Airport, I feel immense dirt and pollution in the air. What worries me more is that, I see hundreds of people stranded on the streets with no shelter facing the harrowing effects of air pollution without any protection.

This made me decide to help the poor in India suffering from the harmful effects of air pollution. And, my non-profit organization, Loving Hand Inc, was born in 2016.

I raise funds in USA and use them to buy respiratory equipment like pollution masks, nebulizers and asthma inhalers to distribute to the poor. So far, Loving Hand has helped hundreds of poor within Indian villages and communities.

After running such a gratifying organization for over 3 years, I want to call on the Government of India to “Help India Breathe – Free Pollution Masks for Poor #PollutionFreeIndia”

We need to convince the Indian Government to provide Pollution Masks free to the poor. 

Also, there is a strong need to enforce rules strictly, fine the violators for fuel adulteration, use cleaner fuels, plant more trees, encourage recycling and increase the use of solar energy.

Let’s join hands to “Make a Difference” by signing this petition.
