From 28th March, Our team start contributing funds and bought rations for these families. We distributed more than 350 kits of ration as of now which consists of 5 kg rice, 2 kg Atta, 1 kg potatoes, 1 kg onions, 1 bottle of oil, 1 packet of Salt & Haldi & 2 kg of daal (when Daal was unavailable we replaced it with Channa), each kit cost us around INR 600. We have also distributed cooked food to more than 1000 families so far.
There are more than 4,678,326 (this was 2011 census) people living in slums. And most of them used to work as construction workers, street vendors, local Laundry workers, Daily wage earners, so we are covering as many areas we can. It has increased our need for approx. 1000 kits more to be distributed as we are getting calls from different slums everyday.
We would request you all to support us immediately because We cannot fight COVID-19 until we provide a solution to the underprivileged section in our slums. Hunger, Fear & Insecurity - 3 most deadly things in the world that can raise to any chaos.
Support is what we need from all of you to keep these people alive.
