Covid-19, as the disease caused by the novel coronavirus is called, has infected more than 2.7 lakh people worldwide, killing more than 11,500. In India alone, the disease has so far caused 4 deaths and infected at least 300 people across 22 states, as of 21st March 2020.

Medical experts agree that the only way to control the rapidly spreading disease is to practice social distancing and limit human-to-human interactions. In the past week, several states across India put this into action by closing down schools, colleges, malls, theatres, restaurants, shops and non-essential workplaces, recommending working from home where possible.

It’s important to remember that not all can remain in quarantine without their lives being completely upturned. The financial impact, especially on families that survive on daily income - laborers, domestic helps, taxi drivers, restaurant waiters, beauticians/hairdressers have been far reaching. On the other hand, there are many people in our society: doctors, nurses, conservancy workers (garbage/waste segregators), delivery staff, field volunteers working tirelessly to ensure our societal needs are met: often at the risk of personal safety.

But if there’s anything that the pandemic has taught us, it is that people want to help those who need it the most.

This crowdfunding initiative by Milaap is to highlight citizen initiatives carried out to mitigate the economic crisis faced by vulnerable families as well as support those who are in the frontlines with the monetary resources they deserve.
Our larger objective is to inspire each one of us to look within our circles, our neighborhoods, our workplaces and support the vulnerable in this hour of need. The only way to fight this, is together.

This mission is  to feed the needy families who are most severly affected in this pandemic, like daily wage workers who aren't left with any source of income now.
A Lot of families die by suicide due to lack of food. I want to raise fund to help them through SAKONSA organisation.
Together we can give them a reason to smile.
It might be your one day treat but for them it can become whole one week meal.
SAKONSA will use funds to distribute dry ration kits to needy families around us.
Needy families includes poor families who didn't have any source of income now, like migrant workers, daily wage earners.
Dry ration kit includes flour 2kg, rice 2kg, biscuits1pkt. , milk, sugar, pulses 1kg,oil 250ml, soap 1 ,potato 1kg.
1 week meal cost is Rs.  550/-

We will also teach them how to prevent covid spread and apply healthy practices by giving them masks and sanitizers. 
I hope you will help in saving people from hunger.
