All the countries are taking immediate and drastic steps to stop the spread of this dreaded Corona Virus. The best way, as currently suggested by Prominent Health organizations around the world to prevent the spread of this disease, is to create social isolation and stop the mingling of the people.
Keeping this in view, the Indian government led by Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi announced the Janta curfew on the 22 March 2020, and the curfew is now extended till 12 April 2020, in over 80+ districts of India. While such steps are necessary and welcome, this creates an unseen situation for the Daily wagers of India.
It's no secret that a vast majority of Indian population depend on the day to day work to earn bread and butter for their family. With the implementation of strict curfew across India, new problems arose for these poor people to feed themselves and their families.
If these people go to work (which is now almost impossible due to the curfew), they risk their health and lives and of others whom they might meet. The government, with its massive machinery, will still require the help and support of its countrymen and NGOs to cope with this unprecedented situation. We have decided to contribute our bit in these testing times.
The money raised via this campaign will be utilized to provide Food to maximum people from the unorganized sector of the Indian economy irrespective of their caste, religion, language, or other social and demographic distinctions. Food is amongst the most basic of human needs; if individuals get the Food to eat, they can survive.
Apart from Food, the money will also be utilized on health-related expenditures like arranging masks, sanitizers, and other essential medicines.
