The #HungerHelpline is engaged in providing emergency food supplies, rations, and medicines to families who have lost the source of livelihood on account of #CovidLockdown and as such are unable to purchase the same.
This is a Pan India Helpline launched on 17-4-2020 and has to date helped around 10,000 families. Help is provided to beneficiaries in Delhi-NCR by delivering ration kits directly and in case of SOS from outside Delhi-NCR, funds are transferred to local vendors, who in turn provide the ration to the beneficiaries.
It has been so far financed by the contribution of personal funds and charity auctions by the Make A Difference Group members- which include Students, Social Activists, Teachers, Corporates, and NGOs. However, with the extension of lockdown, the number of SOS messages is continuously multiplying as more and more families are running out of the funds and supplies, and it's no longer possible to finance the #HungerHelpline through personal contributions of the members only.
Therefore the present fundraiser seeks to raise an amount of Rs, 200,000/- to support the activities of the #HungerHelpline so that it may continue to help the underprivileged people of our country.
