The Unfolding Story
Directly support individuals impacted by Corona Virus
Many people who helped us in normal times are struggling today to pay bills. These include daily wage earners like rickshaw and taxi drivers, mall workers, maids, street vendors, and others in the unorganized sector.

We are distributing food packages, masks, sanitizers and soap to people who have been hit by the short-term closure of businesses, and recent developments over announcement of lock-down extension
As the crisis grows, the people most affected by it will be those living in India’s unorganized sector of the Indian economy. They are typically daily wagers, maids, house helps, construction site workers, plumbers, electricians, workers in small units, delivery boys, etc., and their financial well-being will be directly impacted by their inability to earn their daily wage. 
It is here that we can all extend our help to such affected persons and in turn help their families.
We are a group of like minded individuals from different fields like IT, Medical, Social-Service and Educationists. 
We need a massive input of funds to run such an initiative(s). Our first step is to raise Rs. 12.60 Lakhs. But the amount of time and effort needed is massive. We have identified 40 such worst affected families of daily wage earners who are deprived of food and such things. We can't do much, but at our level with your support, at-least we can support them with food (three times a day) and two numbers disposable masks per person.
We have taken 5 members per family, so approx 200x3 = 600 food packets will be required per day.  Cost of each food will is Rs 70, disposable masks (2 nos) will be costing Rs 5.

By our current estimates, the use of funds we foresee are as follows:

85% towards food preparation and distribution, starting with a 100 percent initially.
15% percent towards medical supplies, masks, gloves, paper soaps, sanitizers

Thank you so much..  to all those who have donated to this cause ...
We will reach out to all you anonymous/known donors whom we know, to personally thank you,
but for the rest "Thank You so much".  
Please spread the word so that more people can be helped.
Everyone is welcome to participate in this initiative.

Keeping in view the current situation due to Corona Virus Scare, and to comply with Government & Local Administration directives over lock-down, we have decided to dis-continue open distribution of free food.
We will continue to support the cause by distributing the food in packed form

Each packet will have
4 Chapati or 4 Poori
1 Medium bowl fried rice
Available seasonal mix-veg
1 Small Water bottle
2 Tissue Napkins
1 Paper Soap, 2 disposable face masks

All volunteers will be ensuring that they are wearing COVID-19 protection masks, gloves & have sanitizers with them all the time, and always ensuring that there is no gathering

Calculated cost per packet will be Rs 75

We expect the current situation to end soon and we will be back to our normal operations soon
Our beloved PM, CM and All Office bearers are working hard to combat the situation amidst the Corona chaos, we have full faith in them and express our gratitude
