It is the reality of many who have been hit by hard times, especially due to the situation not visible to many.
The outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) which has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation has caused havoc all around. There have been over 1400 reported cases so far in India and 35 deaths. It has taken a toll especially on the migrant workers and daily wage laborers. Despite the grave circumstances, it is important to note that our collective action can save lives and help the most marginalized at this time. Nobody can predict the period this pandemic might stay. But who suffers the most, it is the low income groups.
A few of us have been trying to help families and have managed to impact over 50 families with groceries especially those in the BPL category, differently abled, migrant labourers, daily wage laborers, single mothers.
It is important to take quick action at this point to support instead of delaying help. Our approach has been to raise funds and simultaneously help the poor. Through this crowdfunding platform we will be able to reach more number of families without charging a single rupee ourselves and disburse of every rupee that comes through this campaign within the next 2-3 weeks.
Our aim is to provide essentials consisting of groceries such as 5 kgs rice, 2 kgs wheat, 1 kg sugar, 100 gram tea packet, 1 fresh vegetable, 1 kg lentil, 1 litre edible oil, 3 soaps, floor disinfectant, 1 packet turmeric @750/ per family.
Keeping in view the guidelines of our honorable PM, we shall not organize mass gatherings, this will be distributed door-to-door by a few of us.
Kindly donate now, so that the help can reach in time.
One important thing that we would like to re-emphasize we work at the grassroots level in urban areas and do not charge any fee in distributing these items.
Please donate now and share it with friends and family members. So that maximum people can be benefited.
We believe that with your help many lives can be saved and it is our duty to help the people who need it the most.
Please follow the protocols issued by the government and WHO to break the chain and flatten the curve.
Wash your hands.
