Did you know that about fifteen percent of the Indian population sleeps hungry every night? “Hunger” is a very sensitive and widespread issue which is often underlooked and awareness regarding this issue has become a subject of importance in today’s world, especially during covid times.

Covid – 19 is creating a hunger catastrophe in India! In a country where a majority of the workforce is in the informal sector, people have been massively affected due to the loss of jobs and the lack of access to the benefits (including social security) that come with formal employment. The daily wagers, construction workers, street vendors, and domestic helpers have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic and lockdowns and are living a life of uncertainty and disrupted incomes. The pandemic and resulting unemployment has made India’s hunger crisis worse.

The greatest impact of malnutrition might not be clearly visible in the near future, but it is slowly taking away the youth of our country which are the tomorrow and the pillars of a new India.

According to a recent census, the total number of slums in Kolkata is occupied by about 31.35% of the total population of Kolkata city with five to six persons per household on average, with an average monthly earning of Rs. 500 and 1700 which has gone down drastically during the covid periods.

Therefore, I, Raahil Rana, a Volunteer at Hamari Pahchan NGO have started this campaign to fill the stomachs of all the unprivileged individuals that I can. My goal is to let everyone sleep peacefully with their stomachs full.

The basic monthly expenditure for necessities per family is around Rs. 2500.

A basic ration usually includes:
(Pulses, Atta, Rice, Eggs, Tea, Sanitary kits like (soap, shampoo, sanitary pads), clothes, basic utensils, and cleaning equipment like washing powder, toiletries)

Action Speaks more than Words! Be someone’s reason to smile. Even the smallest contributions count. 
You can donate for a family’s one-time meal i.e., only Rs. 50.

Thank you
