My former colleague and friend Vijayendra is coordinating a group of volunteers and already has a fundraiser. I am assisting him with the same to raise more funds. This is what he has to say.⬇️
We are a young group of volunteers who are trying to triangulate govt assistance, organisations database and also personal contributions (as a last resort) to ensure assistance to migrants and vulnerable communities during the lockdown due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic.
We have till date been able to reach out to 3126 individuals who are currently in 12 states / UTs of India (Maharashtra, Gujrat, Telangana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Karnataka, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Diu & Daman) of which 872 required immediate financial assistance. Most of these people are the ones where govt or organisations have not been able to reach or will take a few days to reach. We are intervening to ensure we do not have hunger deaths.
We are NOT any registered organisation but individuals and have competent individuals who verify each case we receive. Our estimate says in the next 15 days, we will have a second wave of requirement, hence this online fundraising appeal. If you would like to be a part of an effort to assist these communities please do contribute.
Kindly drop us a message at +919731809287 on WhatsApp after you make a contribution if you wish to be informed as to how your contribution was utilised. We are trying to keep the donors updated as to how their assistance was utilised.
Thank you for your valuable contribution.
