This is Gousiya hailing from Goa, small, beautiful state ,but have seen the worst in the past few months just like our other Indian states. People have never been so helpless and devastated before this pandemic. In the mids of crises me and my husband had a will and wish to provide food to the Covid patients relatives and people with mild Covid symptoms being home isolated. We began the " Free Food For All" project since 6th May 2021.The gift food is prepared at our home kitchen, is being packed in the reusable and recyclable containers maintaining the hygiene and cleanliness. Initially we began with 30 lunch parcels, gradually the number increased and we kept it going until today.
Alongside food parcels, the basic ration kits are also being gifted to the most deserving families, most of the people here are dependent on tourism and fishery as their sole income, this has been hit very badly, currently we are supporting 10 families with this ration kit for every 15 days that comes to Rs.50,000/- . We have been approached by 20 families for Ration support urgently. They have been struggling to meet their end. To be transparent we have mentioned the list of things given in the "Weekly Ration Kit"
The areas we cover for gifting food parcels is Panjim and its surrounding areas i.e. Taleigao, St.Cruz, Bambolim, Merces, Dona Paula, Chimbel, Old-Goa, Brittona and Porvorim .
