Mission Milk is simply put a milk bank. An initiative taken by the youth of Bangalore, to provide support to the underprivileged children in these dire times. Our goal is to provide children with the most basic source of nutrition that we have all grown up with as Indian kids, MILK.
It all started with an effort to deliver the basic rations to as many families as we could and during one such visit we realised at a single settlement of about 50 families, there is an average of 4 children per family aged between 10 months to 10 years. While discussing their needs we understood that although most of the adults' needs were being met through the rations being provided, the children still needed milk.
How you can be a part of Mission Milk:
If you ever wondered how you do your part in helping out the people in need during this period of lockdown in the safest and most efficient way possible, this is it. We need your help, we need you to enable us to help these children on your behalf. We are looking to collect donations corresponding to the value of per litre of milk. Unfortunately due to the perishable nature of milk, ensuring fresh supply and zero wastage, we will not be accepting milk itself as a donation. It is imperative that you, our donors, understand that this is a daily requirement. Our supply will vary day to day as per the requests that we receive. We intend on providing fresh milk, not only to the families we are already helping but any and all organisations, NGO’s and other such amazing people already providing support to the needy.
Our target for this initiative is to be able to supply 1500 litres of milk on a daily basis to those in need till the end of May, giving them adequate buffer time to get back on their feet once the lockdown lifts.
