    Poor families

    from All over mumbai

The second wave of Covid-19 infections is spreading across the country and state. Even after state is announcing restrictions, India is reporting daily more than 3 lakh cases recently it was touched 4 lakhs too. The outbreak is no longer concentrated in a few states or even in urban areas as was earlier thought. While the second wave has not impacted the livelihood of salaried employees to a great extent, it has again affected poorer households. Thousands of migrant labourers and daily wage labourers returned home when some states announced lockdowns in prominent cities due to they don’t have any source to get over their hunger. Again, there is issue for daily wager and poor families who works daily for their bread and butter. Rates of daily needs are on high due to non-availability of stock. Vegetables are being sold for rates which higher two or three time higher.During the first wave Aarine foundation supported many poor families through grocery kit distribution programs. We have supported more than 1000 families for the period of three months.  This time we are getting many requests for grocery distribution across slums of Mumbai. These include area of Vithava, Rable, Airoli, Nerul, Kurla, Chembur, Govandi, Mankhurd, Miraroad, Dharavi, Ghatkopar.We have a community centre at Ramesh Mittal Corry, Shirvane, Nerul, Navi Mumbai. There are more than 350 families who stays there. Head of the families are construction worker, hawkers. Some families left to their village, but many are unable to do it as there is work in their village or they don’t have money to travel. They are struggling for single meal every day.We are a bit fortunate that we are alive and have something to survive. But there are many families they are feeling life as a burden. to help these families we have started distribution of grocery kits this time too.  Due to high demand and less funds, we are unable to meet the demand.  We are making the request to donors like you to help us to help them. You can support as much as possible to help these needy families.  We are going to distribute grocery kits which includes Rice, wheat flour, 2- types of dal, Cooking Oil, Sugar, tea powder, salt, spices, Sanitizers, and mask. This would be distributed to families of daily wager like construction worker, hawkers, carpenter, painter, electrician, drivers. We have set a target of 5000 families to support during this lockdown.
