An initiative has been taken, to Fight Hunger, by Hamari Pahchan NGO. We aim to provide food to the ones who are less privileged, poverty stricken and are unable to afford a proper nutritious diet, especially Children, who go empty stomach everyday.
To Survive another day, They Need You!
Poverty and hunger are the deep rooted issues of our country. Approximately 190 million Indians go to bed hungry every day. In a country where around 50 kg of food is thrown away per person every year, it seems ironic that every year around 9 lakh children die of starvation.
The Covid -19 pandemic has worsened the situation. More and more families have moved below the poverty line. There is dire need to help the ones who cannot afford even a 1 time meal.
India ranked 71st out of 113 countries in Global Food Security Index of 2021. India slipped to 101st position out of the 116 countries, in last year's Global Hunger Index.
According to a report by the International Food Policy Research Institute, it has been predicted that the Food Production of India could drop by 16% as a consequence of which hunger may increase by 23% by the year 2023.
Hamari Pahchan has come up with an initiative to address this issue at the ground level in order to make sure that no stomach goes to bed empty.
I am Shashikant, a law student working with Hamari Pahchan. To remove Poverty(the underlying cause) will need a long fight. But what can be done right now, is to not let a single soul sleep empty stomach.The goal is not just to provide food but nutrition rich food.
We can reach this goal with your humble support. Contribute to donate ration or meals to the unprivileged people who might need food right now.
