The six families who were donated tents were a part of large group who is based at Papu Temple, Near Mandor Bypass Road, Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India. The donation of tents enables families to reside safely in open surroundings – open grounds etc. where most of refugees are based. Tents are of military grade and help protect the Hindu refugees from forces of nature and snakes – insects prevalent in this desert region. In this region of Northern India – there are winds, direct sun and temperatures reaches 48 degree Celsius during summers and 0 degree Celsius during winters.
