People we help
How do HRLD get to know about their cases and who are the people they help? Many victims of rights violations who turn to HRLD for help have heard about the NGO and their work through the media. Various articles and reports about their activities have been published, so many people have contacted Sarode and his team after reading about their work. Even within the police and courts in Pune they are well known, and many official institutions refer victims of rights violations over to HRLD. So do other NGOs dealing with social grievances but who are not directly engaged in legal issues. Other people seek the help of HRLD after having met one of the members on their numerous 'field visits' such as in prisons, in the red light districts etc.
