Sang - A COVID-19 Relief Initiative

"Somewhere along the way, we must learn that there is nothing greater                                         than to do something for others."
                                            Martin Luther King Jr


BACKGROUND

The threat of COVID-19 in India extends beyond the virus itself in the form of a multitude of social issues, and the hardest hit are daily wage labourers, migrant workers, street vendors and the homeless, whose livelihoods were crushed under the lockdown.

WHO ARE WE?

We are Sang (संग), a group of young leaders who have come together with a simple motto in our hearts: "Locking down hunger, together"

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

The two approaches that we use to provide relief to the communities in need across Delhi and India are as follows -

  • Direct Approach: We are collecting funds that are being used to supply food (essential ration), soap and sanitary napkins to families facing the worst backlash in this indefinitely long nation-wide lockdown. This is happening in the areas we have all the links established, from vendors to volunteers with a strong supply chain.  
  • Collaborative Approach: Through this approach, we reach out to partner organizations with strong bases in areas we do not have access to. Several of these include Saajha, Paigam, and Udayam Trust, amongst others. We facilitate the process and ensure that we have records for transparency. In such cases, the approach is modified, and we go case-by-case in getting the resources to the community in need.

We have also initiated two campaigns to tackle the issue of increasing domestic violence (#SabkeSang) and to facilitate the movement of migrant workers to their homes. We hope to enable rehabilitation by providing employment to impacted communities currently living without livelihoods or a source of sustenance.
 
OUR IMPACT & OUR TARGET

We have supplied 16000+ individuals with 2-4 weeks’ worth of essential relief items. However, given the indefinite prolongment of the lockdown, we are determined to serve as many people in need as possible. Our target is to raise a minimum of Rs. 15,00,000 or supply worth the amount, and we need your generosity and support to achieve this goal.

Dear donors,
With almost 70%+ raised for out first distribution in Bihar (Madhepura district), we are going ahead with first 75 families and hence withdrawing rs. 75,000 directly in the vendor's account (Future trading managed by Shambhu Nath Singh- 9835623690).

Your generosity has enabled us to impact thousands, and we thank you for it. The impact created has been created by YOU and us together. We want to be as transparent with our efforts as much as we can. We want to assure you that 100% of what you donate goes directly to communities (except the payment gateway charges which you must yourself be aware of). Our team of young changemakers are volunteering their time and efforts as you are donating your hard earned money. If and when we do need your help us continue our work with our volunteers as well as our community, we will ask you and you will know that is what you are donating for.

As a youth led organisation, we strive to create a space that makes it easy for young people across the country to come up and create an impact and for donors like you to support us without worrying about where is your money going. To ensure that we walk the talk, we request you to reach out to us at info@sangcollective.org with any suggestions you might have on how can we update you with our work the best. We look forward to hearing from you and keep doing the work we want to do.

Love,

Dear Donors,

Thank you for being so supportive of this campaign. It is because of your support that we have been able to do the work we intended to do and are providing help to those who need it.

Currently, we are working in Sitamarhi, Bihar along with the panchayat head Ritu Jaiswal. 500 kits and some tarps have already been sent through donations in kind.

We will be withdrawing funds to the account of AP Deepo Bhava Foundation which is the trust set-up by Ms. Ritu Jaiswal herself, as we wanted to be transparent in dealing with the funds. A sum of ₹18,407 has been requested which will be used to buy tirpal for mud houses in Sitamarhi. Our target is to buy it for 2000 houses.

We will soon be sharing pictures and videos of the work being carried out. Thank you once again to all of you for your support. We request you all to keep supporting us as you have.

Warmly,
Team SANG
