With new restrictions in place, we have again started getting calls for ration especially from home based workers in Punjab, daily wage workers in Pathankot , Hoshiarpur and Gurdaspur districtand from villages in interior parts of Punjab where certain sections of the villages have been completely contained.
We are targeting to provide ration and cooked meals to workers who are not getting benefits of government relief package as they’re not registered with the labour department and don’t possess ration card. In addition, we are looking at supplying basic medicines and in worst cases oxygen cylinders and help with hospitalisation and other expenses.
Right now we’re catering to requests in Punjab, but as new restrictions are being placed.
After serving more than 0.5 million hot meals and dry ration for 50000 persons from March 2020 to November 2020 during national lockdown, we are facing fund crunch to cater to needs arising out of present situation due to lockdown and complete breakdown of the public health infrastructure.
We helped as many as couldn’t with everyone’s support last year and continue to engage in relief efforts, providing food, medicines, information, and any other help as required.
With your support, we can reach our target, hence requesting you to please contribute whatever amount you can so that we can attend to maximum requests.
