    This fundraiser will benefit

    Transgenders

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

With the pandemic wreaking havoc across the country and with the curfews and lockdowns being imposed, most of us are blessed to be able to  have the essentials and stay safe at home with our families.

I am Amrutha and I have been volunteering for 10+ years for children, disability and especially the transgenders community.

But, there are many who are struggling to make ends meet to an extent where one proper meal a day is becoming a struggle. There are lakhs and lakhs of people who are going through this hardship day to day and with the COVID situation getting worse it's gonna make it more tougher.

So to start with we are hoping to help one of the most affected and less noticed group of people, the transgenders. In addition of having to face the social stigma, they now need to survive this pandemic as well.

As an effort to help them sail through these tough times keep them safe, we have identified close to 250+ members who are facing hardship and a little effort from our side could help them survive and also help them to stay indoors that way they are not infected and also it helps contain the spread of the virus.

We are executing this in phases, the first phase being to support 150 members of the transgender community in 7days.  

We are planning to get each of them a basic ration kit that would consist of the following items -
Rice 10kg
Oil -1 ltr
Wheat -3kgs
Sugar -1kg
Tea - 100gms
Dal -1kg
Sambar powder -  200gms
Turmeric -100gms
Pepper powder -100gms
Jeera- 100gms
Kabasura kudineer powder for immunity
Soaps -1
Masks - 2
1 kit costs only INR 1000/-.

We are hoping that we will be able to support them by people coming forward to support atleast 1 member from the community. Lets join hands and help get through these tough times together.
