The coronavirus lockdown has not only forced the entire world indoors, but has put India’s four legged strays in extreme distress. Unavailability of food and water in the scorching summer is impacting stray animals all over the country.
With restaurants and eateries downing shutters and food trucks parked at homes, strays have been struggling to find food to kill their hunger. They have nothing to eat, not even leftovers that they always relied on.
Dogs who do not have dedicated feeders suffer because even production of garbage from eateries has stopped and meat shops which were their favorite place to hover around have shut. Weight loss is not the only problem, scarcity of food could trigger competitiveness leading to increasing aggression among strays. There are high chances of these animals could change their normal behavior.
There are about 1.713 crore stray dogs in India, according to the Livestock Census of 2012. These numbers would have multiplied by now.
Realizing the impact, animal rights activists and NGOs are feeding stray dogs and cats wherever possible. MUMBAI HELP intends to collaborate with feeders and provide them sustainable solutions for food and financial assistance to prepare home cooked meals. We currently intend to feed 250 animals daily which we would gradually increase it to 1000 per day in few weeks.
Mumbai Help is a ground-up citizen movement that strives to fight hunger.
Mumbai Help is a movement that symbolises “Mumbaikars” — people coming together selflessly and helping out those in need.
