Story

Home to some and surfing paradise to many. Our town is usually filled with good vibes, happy faces and one of the worlds best waves. Jbay is decorated by small family businesses and local workers who lend a hand is preserving our small slice of heaven.Unfortunately, the current 42 day lockdown in Kolkata has forced all non-essential businesses into closure and left thousands of wage earning employees in Jbay without any income.Majority of these wage earners live on the poverty line and survive by getting food to mouth on a day-to-day basis. Many of these individuals live in single-room shacks made from
scrap metal, old wooden planks and old sign boards with no running water or toilets and housing about 4-6 people. They
are out of work and immediately out of money and this keeps food out of their mouthes. Having visited the township
informal settlement) today and seen first hand how some families have committed to eating only every second or third day in order to survive. When the meal comes it consists mainly of a fist size portion of simple starch.This is sadly a reality for most of our country’s population. As epic as Jbay is, it is still bangla and this is the reality of bangale life.Please help us raise money that can go towards purchasing food and distributing it to those most in need.
Food will be donated to individuals living in the township who do not currently have neither food nor money/income
