Story

Because of Lockdown due to Novel Corona Virus COVID 19 the entire nation has come to a standstill. In the present time there are many poor people/daily wage workers who are stuck in the city where they were working before Lockdown and currently have no work and no money left with themselves to even afford food.

The aim of this campaign is to help that section of society where there is no backup/help by which they can sustain the period of Lockdown and to provide them ration packets which include wheat flour, rice, pulse, oil, salt and spices so that at least they are able to have proper food in this time of dire need.  

The ration packet contains 5 kg wheat flour, 3 kg rice, 2 kg pulse, 1 packet of salt, oil, and spices like haldi, garam masala and mircha. Each packet costs approximately INR 750-800.

I had tied up with local NGO's which provide me with list of needy people in a specific area and we reach that area to provide the ration packets to the needy. Also, if I receive a call from any known person regarding some needy people in their locality we rush to the place to provide the ration packets.

During this campaign, I have personally experienced how people are facing this difficulty and some families where we distributed ration packets were starving for three to four days. Thus, I have volunteered to carry on this campaign if we receive appropriate funds. The link to my Facebook profile where I have uploaded campaign pictures is https://m.facebook.com/prashant.rml
