Mahila Abhivrudhi Mattu Samrakshna Samiti (MASS), an NGO in the district Belgaum of Karnataka is struggling to purchase groceries for the women in the district amidst the lockdown in India.

MASS has been working for the welfare of Dalit women, specifically ex-devadasi women and their children since 1997. The organisation runs multiple programs that provide a complete support system for the empowerment of these women, securing them a stable income and ensuring their children’s education. With a current membership of more than 3000 devadasi women in all, MASS is changing the lives of so many who once had no hope. Ms Sitavva Jodatti, the CEO of the foundation, who was once herself a victim of the oppressive devadasi system, is now a Padma Shri awardee.

Livelihoods have been shut down due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in North Karnataka. No income means no food on the tables for families across the district of Belgaum. 

MASS is raising funds to purchase groceries such as wheat, sugar, tea powder, etc which will be distributed by cluster officers and teachers to families in their district.

MASS is now looking to raise an amount of INR 17,00,000. This amount will be utilised as shown below:

This is your opportunity to help the people of Karnataka survive the lockdown and this deadly virus. A little help could go a long way.

Milaap has waived off fees for this campaign.
