Help underprivileged families affected by the corona virus pandemic

The country lock down due to corona virus pandemic is going to have major impact on the livelihood of the underprivileged section of our country. I would urge you to identify and help at least one such family with basic needs (food/money/drinking water etc).

Alternatively, I would urge you to donate as little as you can to this fundraiser. I will try my best to identify and help such families in my locality (Bangalore) through the funds raised through this initiative. 
I shall be using the funds raised to help families (Construction workers/vegetable vendors) that are dependent on daily wages for their survival. 

Through the funds raised:
50 % of the amount will be used to purchase provisions and vegetables. The other 50% shall be paid out directly to the family for future use.

At the end of it all, I shall try my best to share the details of the donation through an email to all the donors. Thank you.

Update 3:
My mom knew a person who does housekeeping in a gas agency nearby. The sad part is, she is a cancer patient. She has been struggling to earn a living and  purchase medicines during these tough times. Through our contributions we were able to donate 3000rs cash towards her medication.

I stumbled upon a house construction site in the neighborhood. I interacted with the labourers cooking their meals. 7 labourers from Dharmagiri are stuck in that site with very little help from their bosses. They can neither go back to their hometown (which is apprently corona free) nor stay here and earn a living. We were able to donate provisions worth Rs 3500 and Rs 2000 cash.

I have donated Rs. 1000 cash to another flower seller who has been struggling with her  business. Some of my neighbours were kind to pitch in with provisions and some cash to help her during these tough times.

I would like to whole heartedly thank you all again  for your generous contribution. Every rupee is making a difference to somebody in need.


Update 2:
I interact with a tender coconut vendor very often. He has been relentlessly going about his business even during this phase of lockdown. I spoke to him a few days back. I understood that the business was down and daily living was getting challenging for him. I got him 10kgs of rice and 5 kgs of lentils

A flower vendor sits in front of a temple. Interacting with her made me understand that she's the lone bread earner in her house. I helped her with 10kgs of rice and 5 kgs of lentils and handed over Rs 500 cash. She had tears in her eyes by this gesture.

I would like to whole heartedly thank you all for your generous contribution. We are able to collectively make a difference to the society we live in.

Also, do get in touch with me. Let me know if you know anyone who may need our support.

UPDATE1 : ​I identified 4 people who work as housekeeping staff in a gym in my locality. They are from Guwahati. They haven't recieved their salaries yet and were living off their small savings that they had done for themselves. Note that these guys are the sole bread earners for their families back home too. Through this fundraiser I was able to help them with provisions worth Rs. 2000 and handed them cash of Rs. 2000. Will update soon on the next donations.
