#WATWB Helping Elders #Dependablez

The world is changing rapidly and in unimaginable ways even as we spread positivity with WATWB.

Our businessmen are also facing these woes and turning them around.

This month’s good news for the WE ARE THE WORLD BLOGFEST comes from the City of Joy- Kolkata.

The three friends made a group, “Let’s Help” during the lockdown and aided the senior citizens for their daily needs.

They come from industries that are among the worst hit — Ms. Dhar works with a wine importer, Mr. Datta is with retail hospitality and Mr. Das owns a restaurant.

Post lockdown, 3 Good Samaritans turn charity into business for survival. They set up an organisation called Dependablez, through which they will continue helping the elderly living alone in the city — but this time for a cost.

Their move is also a reflection of the changing nature of ventures in the new normal — before the pandemic, not many would have kept the elderly in mind while starting a new business.


Here are the co-hosts for the month of July 2020. Do pay them a visit and spread some good cheer.

Remember, anyone can join in. We all make a post following these guidelines: Not more than 500 words: a link to a positive story we found in the news, and an excerpt from it.

A bit about why we chose it, and any other positive thing we want to share.

Anything else positive is fine, as long as we stick to 500 words and make no overt mention of religion or politics.

Shorter is better, so just a link and excerpt is fine, too!

    It’s heartening to see more and more people come forward to volunteer during the pandemic. I feel a lot of goodness has emerged from the pain we have all undergone.

    I’m tempted to write soon on the couple in my neighbourhood who are doing the most fantastic job. 🙂
