Mandira's Food Fund!

I am writing with a huge ask- COVID 19 is causing heartbreak around the world, including, unsurpringly in India, where there is a total lockdown- the quarantine is of course essential, but for the large majority of indians, who exist close to or below the poverty line in good times,  it means the little access they had to food is removed- Hunger is the contant pandemic and food insecurity is at an all time high with lockdown extensions and restrictions on movement and jobs.

Mandira Mehta is an extraordinary human being who, like many amazing individuals, is running a food canteen in Delhi to feed as many as they can during these challenging times.  Its all funded through the generosity of friends, family, and the larger community. She is currently feeding over 4000 people each day.

If she was not someone I trusted more than I trust myself, I would not ask - but I know how hard she is working and how desperate the need for funding is right now, so I do. Anything you are able to give, will help! Luckily cost of living is low and she is able to provide 2 meals, bread and milk for 1 person each day at under $1, so even a little goes a long way. I know these are hard times, and I know you would are all doing all you can for what matters most to you so if you cannot donate, please just keep a prayer in your heart for those who need it most. If you can however spare anything, Please do.....and thank you so so much...
