    Women farmers in Aruppukottai

    from Aruppukkottai, Tamil Nadu

Story

Kasthuribha Mahila Mandal works with 3000+ women through SHGs and Farmer Producer Organisations in Aruppukottai block of Virudhunugar district in Tamil Nadu. More than 500 women are from very low income families who mainly depend on daily wage labour works and are single member earning families.
 
Due to the Covid-19 lockdown they are undergoing enormous difficulties including getting adequate food rations for their family members. Free ration provided by the Government through the PDS is not adequate to lead a normal life. In this situation, provision of food essentials will help them in a major way to overcome these difficulties.
 
KMM has planned to raise resources from known people to help these women farmers to better manage their daily lives during this difficult time. KMM has already distributed food essentials kits to 200 women farmer families.
 
Our food essential kit contains rice (10kg), dal (2Kg), Cooking oil (2 litre), Spices & Other essentials. One kit costs Rs. 1200 which will be helpful for one family to manage this situation for at least 20 days.
