Best Documentary Short 2011- Dilli

How long can renovations leave you without a home for? A day? A month? A year?  What happens when an entire city is being remodeled? 
Thousands were left homeless as their houses were torn down and destroyed in order to make room for changes and modernization.  It was once a place of sanctuary and safety—now it laid merely an ocean of debris.  Departing from their homelands left the people hopeless, their dream and aspirations were now faint memories of the past.  This immense evacuation brought the people to Bawana.  A land with a shortage of water, shelter and drainage; the people transferred to this place while their city was being prepared for the CommonWealth Games 2010. 
In the midst of distress, a charity foundation called Robin Raina Foundation stepped in to provide aid for these victims of homelessness.  RRF constructed the homes in the Indian sub-continent.  6,000 homes were to be produced for free for these people.  Directed by Rintu Thomas and Sushmit Ghosh and produced by Robin Raina, Dilli won for Best Documentary Short in their twenty-five minute expose on this issue.
How would you like to provide assistance for all of these victims?
