    This fundraiser will benefit

    Needy people

    from Chikkamagaluru, Karnataka

I am based in Bengaluru. My friends stationed in three Taluks of Karnataka are working since beginning of lockdown in identifying the marginalized poor with no social security, and distributing ration kits to them.
  • Chintamani Taluk, Chikkaballapura District: Ramakka Building Youth Group (Shashiraj & friends, and Vatsala Madam)
  • Chikkamagaluru Taluk: Ravi K R.
  • Hiriyur Taluk, Chitradurag District: Eshwarappa M.
As can be seen from below table updated today, based on donations from our friends & acquaintances, we were able to cover almost 600 families spread over 62 villages:

By May 3rd, we want to reach out to another 500 families (300 Chintamani, 150 Chikkamagaluru, 50 Hiriryur) in the three Taluks. There will be more families as we go deeper into the villages, and especially if lock-down gets extended.

Unfortunately, we are observing donor fatigue, and the donations from within our circles have reduced.

Please Come forth & donate generously!

FYI, the ration kits costs around 1230/- per family.

  1. The selected families are Marginalised poor (alemari people, single women, widows, divyang, migrants, daily wagers, landless) With NO Social Security:
