COVID Relief Fund to help the families of Puliyanthope!

Pulianthope is one among Chennai’s worst COVID-19 affected areas. The lockdown has already disproportionately affected marginalized communities due to loss of livelihood and shortage of food, shelter, healthcare and other basic needs.

We, teachers of  Chennai Primary and Higher Secondary School, Pulianthope for the past 7 years and are currently  working  with approximately 200 families to provide covid-relief support .

More than 80% of the breadwinners from these families are daily wage labourers and are employed in the informal sector. Predominantly they were employed as slaughterhouse workers who have now been forced out of jobs due to COVID, resulting in families running into debts.  Around 50% of the families have exhausted their savings and have mortgaged their valuables to help with their basic needs.

So far we have been able to provide essential ration supplies to these families and are now seeking your help to extend this support in providing economic relief to them.

The funds received through this fundraiser will solely be used towards supporting the well-being of the families of Pulianthope. A contribution of Rs. 5000 will help a family of four for a month.

We are raising an amount of Rs. 10,00,000 to support 200 families of Pulianthope. We request your support through contributions of any amount and sharing this with your network. Thank you in advance for your trust and generosity.

Additionally, you can extend your support in providing contacts or information on opportunities for employment-both part-time and full-time in Chennai, that will help provide social protection and sustained development to our families above.

Hi,

Thank you for all your support!

So far, 23 families have been supported. Cash handouts were distributed to them and the most essential basic needs they need funds for are groceries, and pending rent bills. Akshay and his team have utilized around 90000 INR of the funds raised so far.

Now, Akshay is withdrawing $880.9 into his own bank account to help transfer the funds to 15-20 more families in need. The students whose parents are facing substantial financial difficulties are aimed at giving out support.

Please keep supporting, thanks again!

Dear Donors,

Thank you so much for your contribution. In the last two weeks,  We reached out to around 50 of our student families and out of which we have identified around 19 families for the initial support. The total support is around Rs.70000 and we are withdrawing the same at the moment.

These are the families who are currently in the most need of money. You can check details of funds distribution in this dashboard. They are mostly struggling families who have either lost job because of COVID or are struggling to make ends meet right now because of the pandemic.

Apart from this, we are also arranging groceries and doing mobile recharge for the families in need.

We will be reaching out to more families in the coming week and we will update the status of the same as well.

Thank you for the continued support.
