We will distribute food packages, masks, sanitizers and soap to people who have been hit by the short-term closure of businesses. The amount needed is much larger and the Government will help eventually. But in the meanwhile. let's help some of these people today.
Why do we need to chip in?
Despite the announcements of relief by both the centre and state, because of this lockdown, we still find at least 30% of families left stranded due to either poor implementation or lack of manpower to identify the needy and resolve. That’s when our team decided to chip in to help the stranded daily wagers and blind/physically challenged families by joining hands with Chilli Chaska.
We mainly provide food provisions/groceries to the families identified by our volunteer force.
Funds collected through this campaign will be utilized in implementing the following activities in cities and rural areas:
- Providing essential safety materials (such as masks, sanitizer’s & soap)
- Providing daily utilities & essentials (such as food grains & food packages)
- Providing emergency financial protection
- Providing accurate information regarding basic hygiene and safety
Are we doing in isolation?
Yes. We follow an approach by which our volunteer force operates from home and will step up out in the field only for the collection and distribution of food provision to the identified families with protective kits such as masks, gloves, and sanitizers. Our priority is both helping the needy and prevention of corona.
