Help Us Feed 650 Families In Ghaziabad Slums. COVID19: Economic crisis


While the world drew its shield against the Corona pandemic, there were defenceless families residing in the slums of Ghaziabad whose daily livelihood were severely affected. Among them were maids, rag pickers and other labourers who struggled to even afford their daily meals. But a week ago, things changed for good.

A team of 28 volunteers from Nirbhed Foundation, along with their founder walked into the slums with packages of sanitizers, liquid soap and masks.  Distributing them to over 650 families (over 7000 people) they educated them on the ways to prevent infection. They sanitized the hands of children in the slums. Seeing their struggle for food, the team promised them two meals a day which they have been devotedly delivering every day, for the past one week. They have been a ray of light for the starving people in the slums.


Founded in 2015, Nirbhed Foundation is an NGO that strives to uplift the economically deprived section of the society by providing the children from those families with education, among other things. Today, Nirbhed has two centers educating 750 students, and a dedicated team of volunteers. But amidst the pandemic, their lives went astray. Jobs were lost, and families were left to starve.


Classes can always be compensated later. But hunger is a different thing - It has to be now. The poor are the most affected during outbreaks like these. Initially, we went there so we could handover masks and sanitizers to our students and their families. But seeing the slums, we changed our mind. If we are doing it, we want to do it entirely, without any bias. We decided to sponsor every family in the slums with two meals every day, along with masks, soap and sanitizer." – Sushil, Founder and president, Nirbhed Foundation.


The team has spent over 1.5 lakhs from their pockets so far. It will cost them 10 lakh rupees to be able to afford the following for over 650 families till the pandemic dies down and their lives get back to normal :

  • Two meals per day for every member of the family
  • Face mask for every member of the family
  • 1 500ml bottle of Hand sanitizer
  • 1 Liquid soap bottle
  • 2 soap bars


With your contribution, they can keep this going.  This is your turn to be generous and contribute selflessly to the cause. You can help the affected get through these dark times, unscathed.

Dear Well Wishers,
Thankyou very much for your support in this critical time. This is the time where a single helping hand is saving the life of many...
Since the Covid 19 lockdown, we are working day and night and distributed more than 7.5 lakh meals. We have given our best, to help not only 2500 families in ghaziabad but hundreds of families in Gaya & Patna, Bihar and Lakhimpur Kheri, Noida (U.P) as well. However, demands are increasing each day from everywhere as its been more than a month they are unemployed and have spent all the savings/credits etc. As lockdown(3)has been extended for 2 more weeks, I am afraid that situation will become worse as most of the areas in which serve are the hotspot of Corona Virus. I request you all to support us so that no one sleeps hungry.

Below, in the video I have tried to show you the work we are doing and providing rations/food with all the security norms :
Uptill now all money withdrawn and has been utilized in purchasing essentials and Ration and still more ration and essential items need to be purchased. I kept this money safe uptill now in order to arrange accomodation for the children, however, now the demand of situation has been changed. Giving them food is my top more priority in order to make them survive in this critical situation. Hence I will utilize remaining amount to purchase the food and essentials to them.
Our Food Kit are enough to provide:
Two meals per day for every member of the family for a week
Ration kit include/comprise of:
1. Aata/ Rice: min 5 kg each or both
2. Dal : min 2.5 kg to 5 kg
3. Any dry Vegetable : 2 kg to 5 kg
4. Spices : Salt, chilli, turmeric
5. Oil
6.Packed Juices.
7.Fruits/snacks/biscuits/milk/Bread (time to time basis)
Quantity depends on our survey list (more ration as per the no. of Family members) that we conduct a day or two before the distribution and members in family.
Apart from food we have also distributed packed food kits to travelers and slums such as fruit juices, biscuits, snacks , bread, butter and milk etc. We also feed stray dogs and cows who have no where to eat as all the shops have been shut down.
