There are about 1000 families (around 2000-4000 people) in the slum. These people range from workers to house help to beggars. Due to the recent lockdown, their income has disappeared, currently no job or any other source of income with the devastating second wave of covid.
They have little or no food and rely on randomly donated cooked meals for daily survival.
We plan to provide them with a very basic kit (see below) so they can survive for the next 15 days or so, hoping they will be able to go back to work by then:
Wheat 5000kg @ 26rs 130000
Rice 5000kg @ 30rs 150000
Sugar 1000kg @ 34 rs 34000
Dal 1000kg @ rs 95 95000
