    Needy People during Lockdown

    from Howrah, West Bengal

Story

Don't let hunger take more lives. No one should sleep with an empty stomach during these difficult times. So we work towards distributing essential groceries to the unprivileged, street children and daily wagers. They all are jobless now. Parents of the street children are not able to provide foods because they are also jobless in this lockdown period. 

The lockdown period is extending day by day. This pandemic has already devastated people's daily lives. So kindly help us to raise the fund so that we can purchase essential foodstuffs, milk, baby food for these unprivileged from this raised amount. 

We have already provided some foodstuff to them but with increasing lockdown period gave foodstuffs are not sufficient for them. Each food packet will contain 3 kg of rice, 2 kg of flour, 500 gm of pulses, 1 packet of biscuits, 1 kg of potatoes, 500 gm of onion, 2 packets of soybean, 500 gm of cooking oil and 2 soaps. Each packet will cost around 350 rupees.

 For the women we will also provide sanitary napkins because hygiene is also essential in this situation . In addition with this packet we will provide 500 gm of amul spray milk powder to children (below aged Six) which will cost 200 rupees per packet. There are approx 80 people in this community where children are 30 in number. 

We are working at Kona Station Slum Area in Howrah, West Bengal which is a red zone also.

Kindly extend your helping hand for these needy so that they can eat for some more days and sustain their livelihood without being hungry.
