CRDS is a Community Based Not for Profit Organization working for the betterment and upliftment of marginalized people. COVID 19 has shaken the world and especially in our country we have been shocked by the massive unemployment of the daily wagers, migration and hunger with more chances of spreading CORONA among them. We have taken the initiative of distributing food and basic health kits to these affected people and has been doing since last one week. For continuing the sincere efforts we need your support... I request you to donate judiciously for this noble cause
We have to close down our center in Bhopal due to Corona virus outbreak . However we have been continuosly supporting the local marginalized communities for their basic needs through daily food supplies. We are spending roughly Rs.35-40k daily on these supplies that have largely been coming through contributions in cash or kind. The local authorities have allocated Five Urban Slums under us that include over 10000 people.
The situation is dreadful and the resources are limited. It is beyond the government and we have been receiving daily distress calls from the families for help. We wish to continue the work and reach more number of people.
