Greetings from Earthangels Welfare Foundation!!
The Lockdown has had a devastating impact on society, including the poor and homeless.
Daily wage-earners like manual labourers, scrap collectors, rickshaw pullers and auto rickshaw drivers are in danger of starving to death due to the lockdown.
The densely populated areas, in particular, are more vulnerable. Physical distancing is an alien concept for slums and may not be effective. Tiny houses with walls barely a foot apart, forces them to stay outdoors to get a brief respite from the electricity-starved environment at home, especially in summers.
The coronavirus has sometimes been called an equalizer because it has sickened both rich and poor, but when it comes to food, the commonality ends. It is the poor who are immensely impacted. The nation has never faced a hunger emergency like this & with limited help the no of people facing acute hunger is increasing every day.
As a result, in Mumbai & many other cities too, local governments and NGO’s are trying their best to provide them with daily essentials and make sure they don’t die of hunger.
Earthangels Welfare Foundation a Mumbai based NGO which focuses on providing education to the kids staying in these slums have now taken an initiative called “Fight Against Hunger", the idea is to connect the concerned privileged class who want to help, with those who need the help.
Since the lock down period, NGO has been successful to provide 4995 Family Kits (Groceries for a month, for an average family of four).
Their are malnourished kids who had nothing to eat at home. A three-year-old malnourished handicapped girl was so feeble that she could not even stand properly. The ribs of several children could be seen sticking out. "These children are underweight and malnourished. The conditions of their mothers are alike and there is urgent requirement of medical assistance
THE FIGHT WITH HUNGER IS STILL ON. LETS TAKE A PLEDGE TODAY THAT NO ONE GOES HUNGRY
