Jamwal's organisation Team Jammu collects woollen clothes for needy and deprived.
Zorawar Singh Jamwal, a man with a mission to serve the society. He is a journalist-turned-social activist. Jamwal collects woollen clothes from people living in urban areas of Jammu and and Kashmir and distribute to people living in higher mountainous regions. These people are in dire need of warm clothing but due to their poor economic conditions are unable to afford.
Jamwal, has formed his social organisation called, 'Team Jammu' which is an amalgam of doctors, engineers, writers, students, businessmen and journalists working voluntarily in Jammu and Kashmir.
Continuing with its mission of extending a helping hand to the needy people of Jammu, Team Jammu is providing woollen and winter clothes to the economically backward inhabitants of remote areas and snow bound areas of the region.
Jamwal has collected clothes for over 2000 people including women and children. "Service of down trodden and needy people is service of God for me, as I am God's chosen one," added Jamwal.
Members and volunteers of Team Jammu are personally visiting the inhabitants in remote areas of Batote, Ramban and Banihal for distributing of woollen clothes among.
Team Jammu has opened several collection centers in the winter capital City of Jammu. It plans to expand and establish collection centres at other areas of the state like Samba, RS Pura, Akhnoor, Jammu City, Katra and Udhampur.
He is also making fervent appeals to the people to come forward and donate generously for helping the needy, who are deprived of necessities of life because of insensitive attitude of the successive State Governments towards this society. Jamwal called upon the youth including college and university students to take the lead and help those who really deserve.
It may be recalled that Team Jammu was first to reach the affected families of Saddal-Panjar in Udhampur district immediately after massive landslides in the area following flash floods in 2014.
