Zestreet is a social impact organization working to empower underprivileged girls and women - socially and economically, by building their capabilities through art, skills and education, to enable them make a sustainable living and transforming them into confident individuals and active leaders of their communities.
We have been working with a group of migrant women in Central Delhi whose life came to a standstill during covid-19 crisis. Most of the families were dependent on nearby factories that are shut since more than six weeks, with no hope of resuming work and hiring workers back. The families were already hand to mouth and now they have been stranded without food and money. We got flooded with help calls within a week for very basic requirement as dry ration.
Zestreet has made all possible efforts in providing ration, cooked meals and sanitization kits to the women families. We have been able to serve about 5000 individuals (daily wagers, pregnant women, handicapped individuals, single mothers and domestic violence victims) in the past 50 days with help of our partners; Zomato Feeding India, Swiggy, and United Religions Initiative. Our women are our frontline warriors who took charge of distribution on ground and ensured every single vulnerable family got helped. We are amazed with their courage and compassion.
However, the worst humanitarian crisis doesn’t seem to end. Our women are still in need of basic essentials and financial help to sustain a couple of months. They don’t have money for food, children’s school fees, LPG cylinder and for their medical expenses. Just to share reality from the ground - women on thyroid tablets are shrinking in pain and discomfort, pregnant women may give birth in the most adverse conditions and even natural death of the only earning member during the current crisis has made it worst.
We are raising Rs. 462500 for 250 women families. The break up is as below.
|Dry Ration Kit ( Atta, Rice, Dal, Pulses, Oil, Sugar, Salt) (Rs.1150 per kit x 250 families)||287500|
|Financial help for LPG cylinders and, medical help for pregnant and diseased women||75000|
|Sanitization ( Mask, Soap, Sanitizer, Sanitary pad ) (Rs200 x 250)||50000|
|Books, study material and fees of children||50000|
|We appeal you to please come forward and enable us help the daily wager families. Your contribution will save someone’s life. Somebody will not sleep hungry or die of tremendous anxiety and pressure during the worst economic crisis.|
