    This fundraiser will benefit

    Daily Wage Workers and Frontliners

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka


A dollar-for-dollar donation initiative for daily wage workers & frontliners as India locks down for 21 days

In its fight against COVID19, India has taken a bold step to lock itself down for 21 days. Whilst this is a step in the right direction, this unprecedented experiment of 1.38 Billion people being locked down is likely to have severe ramifications on the lives of the 100 million-odd daily wage workers & migrants who will struggle to survive.

In these trying times, it is only right that we do our bit to go beyond armchair discussions and debates on Facebook & Whatsapp groups and step out to do our bit to support the marginalized and help them survive this ordeal.

Hence Dipti & I are kickstarting this "dollar-for-dollar" matching fundraiser campaign via Milaap to support a few specific campaigns that addresses the needs of daily wage workers & migrants (including daily meals, ration and shelter) as well as supporting the brave, frontline doctors and nurses with resources such as masks, ventilators, isolation facilities. 

Whatever amount that we raise through this campaign, we will top it up by an equivalent amount from our end and donate to 5-6 causes including  
   - Zomato & CORO India's efforts to provide meals to daily wage workers;
  - Shishir's Joshi's Project Mumbai to equip medics with N95 masks and PPEs;     - United Way Chennai's efforts to procure additional ventilators;
  - Doctors For You's effort to setup a quarantine hospital in Bihar;
  - Shishu Care Foundation's efforts to procure PPEs for frontline doctors &
    nurses under the guidance of Dr. Bharat.K. Reddy

We request and urge all of you to support us in this mission by contributing an amount that you deem fit and also by sharing the link of this campaign with your family, friends and colleagues so that we can maximize the reach & impact - from our past experience of running such campaigns on Milaap, for every $1 that you donate in person, you can potentially help add 30 cents (30% impact) through indirect donations by sharing with your near and dear ones :)

Thank you for your support in advance. Let's help India win this mammoth battle.

Stay home, be safe and take care!

Dipti & Prantik
