The Immediate Requirements
A large number of daily wage workers do not have the backing of any sort of insurance, and as we all know they are among the most vulnerable to the negative financial effects of the pandemic. With no way to cover expenses, workers like these will inevitably struggle to earn money for food and medicinal support.
For these two important reasons, it’s important to look at us, the blessed class of people who can make a concrete initiative to help them get ahead of the crisis by starting to provide the necessary support to individuals like these.
These low-income households are already strained in good times to make ends meet, but this new threat makes it even more important for us to be able to provide immediate medical assistance (to address the basic Covid19 Symptoms) to these targeted households. As educated Indians, we have a responsibility to take along the millions who are suffering.
We need a massive input of funds to run such an initiative(s). Our first step is to raise Rs. 1 crore. But the amount of time and effort needed is massive. We need volunteers, we need administrative support to do this, we need help from the authorities for security, we need help from medical institutions for the health checks and we need delivery partners to run this initiative.
By our current estimates, the use of funds we foresee are as follows:
75% towards free preparation and food distribution, starting with 100 percent initially.
15% percent towards medical supplies, thermometers, masks, gloves, soaps, sanitizers, and social distancing devices
5% for transportation costs
We see ourselves only as of the first step to doing this, we are happy to even hand over the initiative to anyone who has the wherewithal and the experience and the scale to take it up and run it end to end, and keep ourselves in a volunteer role. This is just the initiation of the exercise. It will need unprecedented support for all of us to safely get through these tough times.
