Nana's great work through 'NAAM foundation' will be on TV soon

Nana's great work through 'NAAM foundation' will be on TV soon

Thane, Sept 18 (UNI) The great work being carried out by the Naam Foundation, established by actors Nana Patekar and Makarand Anaspure, is to come out in the form of a film soon.
The foundation works for betterment of farmers in the drought-prone areas of Marathwada and Vidarbha in Maharashtra.
"As the foundation completes two years, we would like to place before the citizens the activities done by us so far," Mr Anaspure said last night.
The foundation completes two years yesterday.
During the period, the foundation has with the help of various agencies dug up water resources to the tune of 1000 kms.
The same is being captured in the form of a documentary being produced by a well wisher, as the foundation cannot afford so much expenses, he said.
He added that the film will be shown on television once it is ready for the people to make them aware of the work of the Naam foundation.
"The foundation started with the donation of just Rs 15,000 to a lady in the affected region, we had not thought that the work will grow such fast.
In this meager amount, she brought two sewing machines and today she has 20 machines and given employment to 20 women and girls," Anaspure proudly said.
Such types of success stories will be screened.
He gave a lively example of Katokol village of Sangola in Solapur district where the farmers had not taken any crop for the past five years and now with the water resources being made available due to the work of the Naam foundation they are taking good crops.
He added that Nana could not make it for the programme as he was just discharged from hospital and was very weak to move out.
