We've gone back in time where hunger has become an urgency after the pandemic. If it was bad, it's become even worse.
The people have been jobless for the last 1.5 year, and due to the current ongoing hunger in jalandhar, they will be COMPLETELY BROKEN; they will die of HUNGER before the virus or hunger hits them.
Who are we?
Feeding From Far is an initiative that has been feeding the poor and unemployed who are struggling to feed themselves during the lockdown. We managed to distributed only 1 lakh meals to the needy since the first lockdown hit through cooked meals. As we want to give them more food clothes and sanitary pads to the girls now and pay school fees of some students those whos parents are not able to pay.
Who do we help?
Since the first lockdown, we have been given food to some families and people
and some clothes to streer dogs in punjab- Jalandhar. Since most residents of punjab are migrants, daily wage workers, rickshaw drivers, rag pickers etc.- they are all unemployed and unable to afford basic food at the moment.
Without having a source of income or opportunity to earn, these workers are absolutely helpless and rely completely on us for their everyday food once again.
What do we do?
To ensure the food does not perish, Feeding From Far is distributing foods to all beggars, some families according to amount, street dogs, jobless people
we want to reach more families and put meals on the table for the ones who need it the most. With the funds collected, we plan on reaching 1000+ more families across jalandhar, ludhiana and amritsar... immediately. For as little as ₹250/- you can make sure a needy family receives grocery kits consisting of rice, atta, dal, sugar, oil, spices and some cash 2000 etc. Each kit will help the family survive for 12-15 days. These two weeks of supply will be their lifeline.
Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this crowdfunding fundraiser link with your friends and family.
