A group of college students headed by Sana Srivastava, who go by the collective ‘My Story Trust’, have redirected their mission to serve those in need. They have been trying to provide families with ration kits and medical necessities like oxygen cylinders, medicines, nebulizers and more. But they are running out of funds to keep up their activities and they need your help.
The team at My Story Trust have been working round the clock and have supported more than 2,000 families in Delhi who were in dire need of ration and other necessities. Seeing that the Indian healthcare system is on the verge of collapsing, they also stepped in to help people desperate for medical assistance.
In the Haiderpur area of Delhi, the situation is a bit more critical than in the rest of the city. With the lack of medical centres to treat those affected by Covid-19, My Story Trust collaborated with reputed foundations to turn a school into a quarantine centre for the poor. The team is operating and managing the entire centre that houses about 50 beds. It is a proper facility with doctors and nurses to treat those that are unable to afford treatment or cannot find a vacant hospital bed.
Their impact was being felt across Delhi’s poverty-stricken areas, and the calls for help increased exponentially. The team took up various initiatives to provide medical assistance to the poor, through healthcare professionals, free of charge.
With their campaign ‘Rickshaw of Hope’, they have been working to serve thousands who couldn't afford even a single meal. Sana and her team have hired auto-rickshaws to transport food to starving children and people and to ensure that no one goes to sleep on an empty stomach.
The first Covid-19 wave brought about the biggest migrant crisis India has ever witnessed. Without a livelihood and no shelter, migrant workers were left stranded in the big city. My Story Trust helped hundreds of these labourers when their lives were at stake.
Sana Srivastava, along with her college mates, established My Story Trust in 2018, after an incident sparked Srivastava’s desire to help as many people as she could. The team first began teaching unprivileged children and eventually panned out to helping the poor. With the pandemic situation, they are all hands on deck to help all those that need food and medical care.
“It is really important to help these people right now. If you think you can help anyone through us or even save a single life, then please do that.” - Sana Srivastava
So many people are still at a disadvantage, unable to access medical help and other basic necessities. My Story Trust wants to continue helping such people, but as a group of students serving the community, they don’t have the monetary means to do so. Now they are asking for your help and support during these uncertain times. Any amount you contribute can make a big difference.
