Story

Lockdown is a precautionary stage to avoid the rampant spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19. However, unfortunately, this lockdown has become a bane to a section of our society.

Daily wagers, sanitation workers, tribals, and migrants have been in distress due to sudden loss of income which has affected their survival. Ration cards have come to the rescue of very few. Several technical problems are becoming a hindrance for migrant workers to secure food. Scores of people in the cities have their ration card in the home town while many haven't been able to get them linked with their Aadhar card. Such complexities are keeping the needy away from food. Furthermore, those who have ration cards are being harassed by the shopkeepers by charging more or hoarding.
                     
                                

To address these issues, the RCM Foundation initiated a relief programme to donate food ration to the underprivileged.
So far our team has been successful in procuring 5 tonnes of ration which was successfully distributed among 1200+ people. We aim to reach out to more 400 families who are stranded, with your support. Each family kit is approximately worth Rs. 750 consisting of the following items:
1. Atta- 5kg
2. Rice- 5kg
3. Sugar- 1kg
4. Soap-1
5. Turmeric Powder- 100gm
6. Chilly Powder- 100gm
                        
                                
            
                               

For this, we need more funds. Therefore, we are reaching out to you through this platform to raise donations to procure groceries.
