    EMPOWERING MARGINALIZED POPULATION FOUNDATION

    from Patna, Bihar

Story

In the present situation of countrywide lockdown due to COVID 19, Empowering Marginalized Population Foundation (EMPF), looks at identifying persons in urgent need of food security, security in health and sanitation and providing them with the required ration, sanitation equipment and urgent medical attention in case of any emergency in Bihar. As of now, EMPF has provided relief packets to 153 families of Bihar, who were in dire need of ration and other sanitation equipment. Further, EMPF has created a WhatsApp group and helpline number which helps more families to connect and provide relief packets to the families in need. There are a lot more families, who were in dire need of ration and other sanitation equipment.
At EMPF we, collective of professional individuals from various backgrounds, are dedicated to empowering the marginalized population and carrying out humanitarian and development programs to empower the marginalized population by working with the communities regardless of faith, caste, gender or political beliefs. EMPF is striving for an empowered world. EMPF mission is to help the marginalized and those in need to live sustainable, self-reliant lives within safe and caring communities. Our work is guided and shaped by the core values of accountability, humanitarianism, neutrality and impartiality, inclusiveness, integrity and co-operation, all of which are also integral to our faith.
EMPF works directly with the marginalized in various states in India. The immediate lockdown by the government has led the marginalized population of Bihar as well as the migrant families at the verge of hunger and lack of basic necessities. The Government has announced several benefits for the families but most of these families will not be able to furnish the documents required by the government.  EMPF is focusing on bringing together resources to support the most vulnerable in whichever means possible. There are three areas it has identified in providing:
  • Food – Providing Ration packets (5kg Rice, 5kg Wheat, 2kg Pulses, 1ltr Oil, 1 kg Salt, Mixed Masala and 1kg Sugar- monthly packet) for the most vulnerable families for at least three months. In particular, those who are left with no income since the sole earning member of the family is in another state, unable to access resources.
  • Sanitation – Provide Masks, Gloves, Hand Sanitisers, Soaps and other sanitation equipment for those living in clusters and unable to access sanitation material. Provide women with Sanitary Napkins and Pregnant women with access to better nutritional health and sanitation.
  • Health – Provide access to urgent healthcare facilities in case of persons who are unable to sustain themselves are in need of urgent medical attention. In particular, families who have been unable to gather resources for healthcare.
It is keeping these three concerns in mind, focusing on the marginalized population in Bihar that EMPF will look at supporting persons.
