Besides extending monetary help to widows of the farmers, Patekar, over the year has also been urging people to come forward and help these families in whatever way they can.
Oh my India
“NAAM has also started medical card facility and has urged hospitals to give free medical facility for such families who hold the NAAM approved medical card.”

Besides starting the NAAM Medical card facility, the NGO is already working towards deepening the 350 kms of Godavari river, so as to be able to help the farmers in crises.
Recognizing Patekar’s hard work towards helping the farmers, city-based ‘Kusumagraj Prathishthan’ would soon be awarding him with the ‘Godavari Gaurav’ award.
We at TopYaps, salute Nana Patekar, Makarand Anaspure and their NGO NAAM, for not only helping the distressed farmers monetarily, but also making sure that they are taken care of in every way possible.
