Story

Delhi is under the second lockdown due to Covid 19. Please make a small contribution to provide food to the needy and homeless.
Throughout the last decade, we have been at the forefront in providing urgent relief materials and aid to the Daily Wages Worker and Homeless People.
Homeless are hardly aware of the dangers of Coronavirus and the solutions available to fight against it. The current Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak continues to spread, with growing numbers of confirmed cases in India. This makes lakhs of homeless living on the streets with lack of ability to self-quarantine, access to medical care acutely vulnerable.
We are providing all necessary help and services to this vulnerable section of society in a time of crisis. Come out in support of your fellow beings.
I know my friends can afford to support at least one family for a month and help me reach this goal. I am personally supporting at least 5 families over the next 3 weeks. As you make a contribution towards a family.

Support from Friends, Family, and Jhuggi/ Colony Pradhan's has been encouraging and is enabling us to make a difference in these tough circumstances. But millions more need us. The cost of each cooked meal is ₹150 and the cost of each grocery kit is ₹3500. Each grocery kit contains rice, pulses, oil, spices, and vegetables that can serve 2 people with 42 meals for 21 days.
We Plan to prepare Food Packets And Ration Kit and distribute the same with the Help of Colony/Jhuggi Pradhan of the nearby Area. We will provide more than 500 packets twice a day. A Little Help from us can help the most vulnerable affected by the coronavirus in these time.
'Support the daily wage earner, Beggars and slum dwellers,' - this fundraiser is organized by Santosh Kumar of Delhi India. where the money raised will provide the needy with soaps, sanitizers, masks, food packets, and medicines.

Some of the areas are covered, Bawana Industrial Area, Kapashera Border, Samalkha Jhuggi, Naraina Jhuggi, and Shakurpur Basti, Delhi India.

3) Why are the exchange rates lower than real-time values?
We assure you that exchange rate you see at the time of donation is purely notional - funds raised in all foreign currencies (we support around 12+ international currencies apart from INR) are held in our US custodian account and transferred as $ when the organizers request the same.

The exchange rate they receive in Rupees is based on that date of receipt of funds through their bank. For example, current (27-04-2021) notional FX rate on site is 52 INR / SGD whereas the equivalent FX rate at the time of transfer (on 27-04-2021) to recipient is around ~ 55 INR / SGD

The notional value of keeping a slightly lower exchange rate for display is to ensure that fundraisers don't suffer from a shortage should there be a fluctuation/volatility in currency movements. So we are conservative with our display. Please note that we make no money directly or indirectly in FX arbitrages or floats associated with it.
