Support Equivi Group to Provide Ration to Migrant Families

ABOUT US

We are a group of film professionals trying to do our bit at this moment of a humanitarian crisis. As India has entered its second phase of Lockdown, the lives of the poor, especially daily wagers, other unorganized workers and the destitute classes is going to be much more challenging.

GOAL: 

To provide  2-week ration, face mask, and anti-bacterial soap to at least 500 households in different parts of Mumbai's western suburb.




IDENTIFICATION METHODOLOGY

Our first source of data was the immediate household service providers such as domestic help, drivers, building garbage collectors and watchmen. Through them, we connected with members of their neighborhood communities. We have prioritized only those families that have no support other than community help and those who have no ration card.

DISTRIBUTION METHODOLOGY:

Abiding by the most urgent need for social distancing and personal safety, we have ensured that we do not move in a large group. We have opted for the following simple approach.

A-PROXIMITY: Campaign committee members are assigned delivery areas as per the proximity of their residence.

B-LOCAL SUPPORT: We have established a channel of local resident partners to deliver relief to the right households, without allowing an assembly and also avoiding any duplication.
C- For Goregaon we could align with the P South ward officials to facilitate distribution.

LOCAL DISTRIBUTION PARTNERS

Goregaon West

Bhakar Foundation
A community-supported nonprofit organization run by the members that hail from families of domestic workers. Bhakar Foundation is already doing an exemplary work of distributing cooked meals to those in need.

Malad East

B - Residents’ Welfare Association of Ambujwadi, Malvani, Malad
C - Jogeshwari, Andheri, and sometimes even Santa Cruz have been covered with our local volunteers.

All the distributions are supervised and monitored by team Equivi.


PAST EFFORTS IN LOCKDOWN 

During the first phase of the lockdown, we focussed on supporting in an individual capacity or through the help of our immediate friends and family.

1- HELP FOR OUR HELP
We initiated this small campaign to help our domestic workers. We encouraged each other to pay the domestic help a month salary and one month ration. Additionally, we keep communicating in the group to check on the respective house helps and ensure their urgent needs are met.

2- Cooked Meal Delivery: 
Collaborated with a group of friends in Versova, Andheri West to deliver cooked meals for 50 people every day in the Koliwada area during the first 15 days of the lockdown.

3- Homemade face Masks
One of our campaign members has prepared 350 units of facemasks with the help of his mother and sister. These will be added to the relief package and further making will continue.

As lockdown eased and work resumed for many of us, it has taken us a while to update all of you about our continuing efforts to provide relief. Last week we distributed 80 ration kits in Asangaon. Our local NGO partners Need Vikas Sanstha helped us with the distribution. Though our campaign has ended but our efforts will continue. BIG THANK YOU to all of you for working with us to provide relief to many.

Though easing of lockdown has given relief to many but recently with the onset of monsoon and the damages caused by cyclone Nisarg in the coastal areas, we have been approached by people to provide cement sheets to restore the roofs of some houses in Raigad. With lack of work and money it has been difficult for people to choose between food and a roof over their head. So far a lot of families managed with plastic sheets as their roof but monsoon hasn't made things easier. We have come forward along with Need Vikas Sanstha to provide for the roof of close to 150 houses in Raigadh.

This Sunday we distributed 80 rations kits in the vast settlement of Ram gadh, Kranti Nagar areas in Kanivali (E) Mumbai. Though a lot of people have gone back to their hometowns many are have still stayed behind. Not everyone has the means to live in their hometowns, there is immense discrimination that is happening with those who are migrating back. With the onset of monsoon many have had to make some tough decisions. This time when we went we decided to distribute some biscuits to the small children their. It was heartening to see the smile just a small packet of biscuit brought to them. We will continue to provide help in such settlements for as long as we can. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
