We are raising Rs. 1,00,000 to provide ration to about 100 transgender and MSM (gay) people from Jaipur, Rajasthan who are facing a shortage of resources due to pandemic that caused a loss of all sources of income for them.
About the Beneficiaries
The second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic put the city back into lockdown. A big number of transgender folks in Jaipur are seriously affected by lockdown restrictions, as their entire livelihood depends on begging in buses, trains, and religious ceremonies. In the absence of all these sources of income, they are struggling to make ends meet. It is a similar case with MSM(gay) daily wage labourers whose work has stopped, heavily slashing down their incomes. This fundraiser is aimed at providing them access to food supplies during these trying times. Please help us ensure the well-being of the most marginalized people by fulfilling their basic needs.
Here is a breakdown of the funds
Ration packets: 100 people * Rs. 1000 = Rs. 1,00,00
