The sudden lockdown imposed in India to prevent community transmission of #COVID19 has created an uncertain future for the marginalized, migrant and homeless citizens of our country.
While the government has announced schemes for the poor, an urgent mobilization is required from the general public as well. We need to do something now so that the migrant and marginalized have some food on their plate.
As a student who has spent his entire school life in Vasant Kunj, I would like to support Responsenet Development Services, an NGO based in Vasant Kunj, Delhi. Through our efforts, we are desperately trying to provide subsistence ration to poor students and their families in Delhi whose livehihood are affected by the #COVID19 lockdown. Currently we are able to cater to 2500 families each day, and provide enough food to last 21 days.
|7 kg of wheat flour||200|
|5kg of pulses||425|
|Red chilli/turmeric power, plus, salt||200|
|Packing and Distribution||60|
Food is a basic requirement to survive, and access to food is a universally accepted natural right. I request each of you to donate for this cause, so that our destitute brothers and sister of India are not forced to sleep on an empty stomach. The bigger crisis that many face is hunger and starvation, not the #COVID19. I will do all I can to support them.
Thank you and God bless.
