Campaign Asha - Help Feed Daily Workers During The Covid-19 Lockdown

Tax benefits
Help us bring hope -- Asha -- to migrant labourers and daily wagers in Delhi/NCR during the Covid-19 lockdown. Let's stand together and take care of each other in this hour of need.

Campaign Asha In A Nutshell
-- NOIDA COVID RELIEF 2020 - So no one goes to bed hungry...
Thiis project has reached 20,211 migrant workers and daily wagers with Dry Ration Kits (between March 30, 2020 and May 29, 2020). 
-- MIGRANT TRAVEL SUPPORT - So everyone gets home safe...
Given the ground realities and how they are changing, as of May 27, 2020, we have also been working on providing non-perishable food kits for migrant workers and their families on their journeys home.

DETAILS ABOUT OUR WORK
As we know, the Covid-19 lockdown has impacted the lives and livelihoods of thousands of migrant labourers and daily wagers who work across Delhi, Noida, and Ghaziabad. Currently stranded without a source of income or food, they are struggling to survive.

1. NOIDA COVID RELIEF 2020* 
enCOMPASSion - a Goonj partner - is working actively to support migrant labourers and daily wagers survive the lockdown.
We provide Relief Kits (dry ration, hygiene, and vegetables) to our migrant labourers and daily wagers, who are stranded without access to livelihood or sustenance, in Noida, Greater Noida, and Ghaziabad. We also respond to SOS calls from some parts of Delhi.
As of May 29, we have reached 20,211 migrant labourers and daily workers, thanks to your support.

To ensure our Relief Kits reach our target demographic, we have instituted the following process:
1. Robust Verification: 
Once the request comes in on our online form, we do a telephonic verification followed by an on-ground assessment.
2. Coupons: For larger requirements, we distribute Relief Coupons prior to Distribution.
3. Sourcing: Through Goonj Relief Kits, or through procurement from wholesalers.
4. Distribution: In coordination with the local police departments, and through dedicated, trusted volunteers.
5. Social Distancing and Safety: The support from the police department also ensures that all guidelines of social distancing are followed.

2. MIGRANT TRAVEL SUPPORT
Now, as the lockdown restrictions are easing, many people are trying to make their way home. Even though transport for these workers is beginning to be arranged back to their home states, they often find themselves relocated from one place to another, with long waiting hours and no clear destination in sight.
Given the current situation, as of May 27, enCOMPASSion has added a pillar to our relief work: to provide NON-PERISHABLE FOOD KITS to workers beginning their long journeys back home, as it may often be the case that they will find themselves with no food for many hours, even days at end.
For Travel Kits, we have relied on crowdfunding through this campaign, and through donations in kind.

GET INVOLVED!
We invite you to be part of this chain of support, do contribute and/or spread the word!
Through Campaign Asha (Hope), we ask for your help to make sure no one goes to bed hungry, and everyone goes home safe. Stand with us and help us to get everyone through this crisis.
Every drop counts!

HOW YOU CAN HELP:
1. Donate monetarily:
Any contribution you make goes directly towards ensuring that our RELIEF KITS and TRAVEL KITS reach those in need,
Given ground realities and price-fluctuations, our RELIEF KITS cost approximately Rs. 1500. This is sufficient to feed a family of 5 for about 2 weeks.

2. Help us spread the word!:
Please share this campaign widely, so we can reach our goals!

*We want to acknowledge our collaboration of Fidus Law Chambers through the first two months of this project. As they shift focus to supporting those impacted by Cyclone Amphan, we hope to continue the work in the coming months.

Dear everyone,

This is our FINAL UPDATE for this project.

On behalf of enCOMPASSion, I would like to express our deep gratitude for your support of Campaign Asha, and the NOIDA COVID RELIEF 2020 project.

Relief work is built on collaboration, volunteerism, and a common purpose of caring for our fellow human beings. This project started as a collaboration between Fidus Law Chambers and enCOMPASSion, and over a period of time, many other organisations have been of incredible support. At the same tie, without volunteers and individuals showing up, we would not have gone as far as we did.

As we close their project and campaign, we are delighted to report the following key highlights:
  • We reached  27309 migrant workers and daily wagers with Dry Ration RELIEF KITS
  • We reached over 3517 migrant workers traveling home with non-perishable TRAVEL KITS.
  • 156 contributions, with some repeat contributors
  • INR 13,28,656 raised in support of this work

As a small organisation, we hardly expected to get this far, and we are incredibly grateful for every single rupee that contributed to our cause.

Our next steps will be to work more closely and intensively with a local communities in Gautam Buddha Nagar to address the economic challenges that the Covid-19 lockdown, and social challenges from the pandemic itself, will have on the most vulnerable communities. We are also launching a learning community programme for people who want to contribute to social change, learn about Nonviolent Communication in Action, and focus on making the world a better place!

Please follow us www.enCOMPASSion.com or on social media - https://www.facebook.com/encompassion.india/ - to keep up with our projects. We would also be delighted to hear from you with questions, concerns, feedback, or to just get involved at connect@encompassion.com.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your support




Campaign Asha carries on.

At the end of this week, as of June 20th, we have brought Dry Ration Relief Kits to 25,447 individuals in Noida, Greater Noida, and Ghaziabad, and for some SOS calls in New Delhi.

We had also started offering TRAVEL KITS with non-perishable food for those on the road. Thanks to the donations in kind and in cash, we were able to bring these kits to approximately 3,571 migrant workers heading home.

Thanks to the unending support of GOONJ, our dedicated volunteers, and our donors and supporters, we can carry this work onwards.

We intend to bring our ration relief to a meaningful closure by the end of June 2020. As the country "unlocks", the nature of the ground realities are also changing. We want to ensure that we continue to support families until they can get back on their feet in July.

Through June, we estimate that we will reach 1650 families, some of whom have been prior recipients and are still struggling to make ends meet. For this, we have raised our campaign goals to Rs. 30,00,000.
To understand our finances a bit better, do read our accounts report from June 3rd: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1QSxzrANVM3ofRk25qNWy_WL3_UkA3eeX/view
So far, we have raised Rs. 13,11,886; we still need to raise Rs. 16,88,114.
Please help us spread the word so we can continue to bring hope to migrant workers and daily wagers during the Covid-19 Lockdown.
