Uttarakhand is facing rains for almost a month and due to this pandemic, old couple staying without family in remote villages are not able to earn living which they generally earn out of selling local farm produce or dairy products.
Continuous rains for past one month have added to this agony and such people are facing difficulty in getting day to day meals. We (Sagar, Umesh & Deep ) as a group of friends have collaborated with SP, Bageshwar district to distribute food packets to such needy old couples in these tough times.
Each food packet contains dry ration to suffice for five days for an old couple to include atta, dal, spices, oil, tea ration and dried vegetable.
Each food packet costs Rs 500/- including transportation charges. Till now three of us as team have contributed for 100 food packets, med supplies for distribution and preventive supplies for Frontline workers.
Contribution of amount worth your one outing, which you would've enjoyed if this pandemic would not have struck us may help an elderly couple to have meal for five days.
The donation would also contribute for purchase of oxygen concentrators for Community Health Centre Baijnath for a dependency of 190 villages. These oxygen concentrators would come handy to manage patients at a primary stage of illness when nearest multi speciality hospital (with 10 bed ICU) is 4 hours away and next hospital at Haldwani at distance of 8 hours. Further to this procurement, funds available will be used for procurement of portable 200 ltr oxygen cylinders for transfer of patients.
