I'm organizing a fundraiser for covid relief fund. I will be conducting a baking workshop this weekend.
All proceeds go to covid 19 relief fund.
Please support us. Share the campaign with your friends and family.
“During the first few days of the pandemic, last year, I realized people were starving because they couldn’t even afford a meal. That’s when I decided to make food for the people and distribute it among them. They gave me their heartfelt gratitude, and since then I haven’t stopped.”The second wave of Covid-19 has left mass destruction in its wake. One of the darkest times in India’s recent history, lakhs of people are testing positive each day, and the casualties are mounting up in thousands. Be it the rich or the poor, people living in cities or villages, this disease has spared no one in its path.
- Mohammed Azhar Khan, founder, Nanhi Pari Foundation
But there is a community that has been severely affected by the pandemic and unable to seek help. The poorer sections of society have been grappling with the disease, with no one to turn to for any kind of assistance. During this time, Mumbai-based Nanhi Pari Foundation, established by Mohammed Azhar Khan, has been trying to render a helping hand for the less privileged.
Nanhi Pari Foundation works towards saving and empowering the girl child population in poverty-stricken districts of Mumbai, as well areas under Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Vizag. But with the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the team at Nanhi Pari have been helping the less privileged in the community survive through these troubled times.
The team has been working day-in and day-out to ensure that food supplies reach various hubs in Mumbai. Till date, Nanhi Pari Foundation has successfully strived to help 4,468 families and has also been feeding daily wage labourers who have been impacted by Covid-19.
“The labourers told us that last year was at least a little better than the current situation because they had some savings. But with this year’s lockdown, they had absolutely nothing left after exhausting all their savings. I get calls from several areas, everyday, requesting for food and ration supply.”
The second wave has been far more devastating so far and the team has been working relentlessly to reach out to everyone in need of help. With the number of cries for help going up exponentially, the team is running out of resources. They need your support to be able to render their help to the poor.
Nanhi Pari works to promote the rights and interests of young girls, and ensure that they are upheld. They also aim to achieve long-term improvements in the quality of life of the girl child and deprived children in developing countries. With their efforts they want to bring about a positive change in the status of girls in the current societal scenario.
