I am a shop owner in JJ hospital's locality and I am a witness to the misery caused to the daily wage workers due to this lockdown. Most of them live from DAY to DAY and do not have the resources to sustain themselves in this lockdown. I have been working hard for the last 5 days to ensure these workers get at least one meal a day. There are about 500 workers in this locality and currently, I can serve only about 200 of them with the help of donations pouring in from friends and family. Following details will help you envision my plan for these 21 days:
-->Distribution of food package that contains breakfast (pav bhaji) costing Rs 25 per packet.
-->No of days this packet is going to be distributed - 21
--> No of people targeted per day 250
--> Total cost for 21 days - 250*25*21= Rs. 131250
--> Location and time of distribution -Food is distributed at 10 am at 12-Ibrahim Rehmatullah Bapti road, Mumbai
We have already been helping such people since 22nd March and about 200 people have been fed each day which amounts to approximately Rs 50000 spent till date from donations by friends and family.
I need your help to make sure all of these people get food until this lockdown is over. We are all in this together and we need to stand with the needy in the time of adversity because if we don't, then who will?
