Story

India was ranked 101 in the Global Hunger Index (GHI) for 2021 from 94 in the previous year, trailing behind its South Asian neighbours Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal with sufficient data to calculate 2021 GHI scores. With a score of 27.5, India has a level of hunger that is serious. 

The report was prepared by the Irish aid agency Concern Worldwide and Germany’s Welt Hunger Hilfe. The report termed the level of hunger in India as “alarming". Now this is an issue of shame that even after having abundant of resources and enough technology we are unable to feed our very own people and children and they are forced to sleep with an empty stomach.

 We are presenting a short video to you which we shot at Jama Masjid area in New Delhi, showing you the life of numerous homeless people, their condition and bring the ground reality to you. We are a developing nation and are developing at a very fast pace but still number of hungry people in India is increasing day by day. It is just because we choose to stay blind to these situations, it is just because we do not want to come forward and help. 

Even after knowing that all it takes is just a hand full of rice or just a piece of bread to save life. 20 crore Indians sleep hungry everyday, it is true- 20 crore people do not have a single meal all day and this is not just sad this is alarming, this figure shows how we as human beings are failing. We have to show a big heart and come forward to end this unclaimed pandemic now. 

This Diwali we wish that no one sleeps with an empty stomach, we will be spending rupees 25/- per meal box. So the total funds raised on our fundraiser divided by 25 = Number of people who will not go to sleep with an empty stomach.
