AID (Association for India Development) has indulged in deception and quietly removed the reference to DYFI from its website. This proves that they are all CHEATS!

Also, NOT a SINGLE AID volunteer touched a dead body, but they are claiming credit for organizing removal of dead bodies by standing next to those who remove dead bodies!
