Lockdown Effect - Help them to make ends Meet

Don't let any of our fellow citizens go hungry

The Novel Coronavirus has hit India leaving the government with no other option than a complete lockdown to contain its spread. Lockdown is an extremely testing time for all people especially for daily wagers, contract laborers & all those whose livelihood depends on day to day earnings. They will be the biggest victims of the lockdown even before COVID-19 enters their communities.

Income inequality is a harsh reality in India, with a large segment of the population having to work daily for their sustenance. The biggest question is how will they feed their families? These people do not have the financial resources to stock up supplies even for a week. Yes food, without which one can survive.

As we all struggle with a global pandemic and its disastrous effect on our local economies, it is important for us to immediately pivot our philanthropic energies to the most vulnerable among us.

CFTI - Centre for Transforming India is an NGO working in the rural coastal belt of Maharashtra. In the past 2 days, we have initiated our grass root level workers in 3 tehsils of Alibaug, Murud & Roha to map families living below the poverty line. We have identified around 10,000 families which rely on a week to week wages for food.
We must direct our energies to help them tide over this crisis and ensure that no individual goes to sleep on an empty stomach simply for obeying the lockdown rules that have been put in place for all our safety.
We would like to propose a pledge of Rs.1000/- (Rs. One thousand only) for a family that has been affected by this crisis. Through this pledge amount, CFTI will provide them,

1Rice 5kg @ Rs. 40/kg200/-
2Wheat 5kg @ Rs. 30/kg150/-
3Daal 1kg@ Rs.90/kg90/-

7Refined oil 1packet120/-
8Face Mask 4 @Rs.20/mask80/-
9Dettol Handwash 200ml82/-

The benefactors of this pledge would be truly grateful for your act of kindness and would make a genuine difference in making sure they don't fall back further into the abyss of abject poverty.
