My name is Sameer , I am a Social Worker from Malegaon. Our relief work started in the first lockdown of 2020 was announced in India. It was precisely the 3rd day when just 7 people decided to help 30 families who were effected due to lockdown with ration kits through social media crowdfunding. We planned to provide them with food relief in the form of a ration kit which contains staples like wheat flour, rice, sugar, salt, etc. Praising God, with just intention of serving 30 families, we were enabled to serve 400+ families not only in our city Malegaon but in Hariyana, Saharanpur & Mumbai throughout the Covid-19 lockdowns through "Twitter" crowdfunding. We hare now a formidable group of local volunteers in these places who are working with us to verify the families and distribute the ration kits to needy families. We have also helped numerous families with medicines, debt and rent related issues.
Our Current Campaign:
Since with the induction of now Covid-19 second wave, it is quite apparent that the lockdown which has been implemented in our state Maharashtra will effect many families with food scarcity issues as many population here consists of labourers, maids, daily wage earners, hawkers, etc. We have already started distributing ration kits. We also distribute Iftar Kits (Rohafza, Dates, Melons, Banana, Water Melon, Appl) Daily. (40 Families, Mostly Widow) We are getting a huge number of food related requests daily where families are on the brink of starvation. Per ration kit cost is Rs.900 which we serve and is of good quality which contains the following items-
5 KG Rice, 5 KG Flour, 2 KG Sugar, 1 KG Dal, 1 Packet Oil, 1 Packet Salt.
These items last for 10-15 days for family of 4, if family members are more than that, we give 2 ration kits. We even make Ramadan Kits, Senior Citizen Kits, Pregnant Mother Kits including nutritious items so they don't feel left out, this we do as per requirement arises. Since we are working from last year and we intend to continue our work for lifetime.
