Our first aim is provide  mask, sanitiser, handwash and food.

While the world drew its shield against the Corona pandemic, there were defenseless families residing  whose daily livelihood were severely affected. Among them were daily wage workers, rag pickers and other laborers who struggled to even afford their daily meals. But a week ago, things changed for good.


Directly support individuals impacted by the virus
As the crisis grows, the people most affected by it will be those living in India’s unorganized sector of the Indian economy. These are typically daily wagers, maids, house helps, construction site workers, plumbers, electricians, workers in small units, delivery boys, etc., and their financial well being will be directly impacted by their inability to earn their daily wage. It is here that we can all extend our help to such affected persons in turn help their families.

The Immediate Requirements

(a) Food

The large amount of hourly/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, reasons, it’s important to look at us, the blessed class of people who The Almighty has granted His Graces, and make a concrete initiative to help them get ahead of the crisis by starting to provide necessary support to individuals like these.


(b) Medicine

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. Our involvement here will be community participation in conjunction with local authorities to test those people who we are serving food to, and to bring them to the attention of the health authorities if they show signs of the infection.
