Food support for underserved communities
We aim to support 4,00,000 individuals across multiple cities in India
With most urban areas still on a lockdown and businesses resuming operations slowly, multiple communities are yet to find a stable means to provide for their families. Many specific communities including those of rag-pickers, sex workers, daily wage earners, transgender have been ignored by other relief efforts during the pandemic. A large number of these families are still facing great challenges in arranging for food for their family.
How will your donations be used?
The donations will be used to provide ration kits or cooked food to specific communities that have been left out of other national relief efforts during the pandemic.
In ₹500, we can arrange for a ration kit for a family of 5 for a week or 10 individuals with one time meal, either a cooked meal or ready to eat snacks with a bottle of drinking water.
This is a 100% not for profit campaign and all donations will be used to procure and distribute food to those in need.
Our strong network of volunteers and NGOs help us manage the on ground distribution keeping social distancing and other safety norms in mind.
We will share regular impact reports and disclose the use of proceeds in a financial transparency report sent to all contributors of the campaign.
Donations made towards this initiative are non-refundable. Receipts will be shared over mail within 10 days from the date of donation for all donations that include valid PAN details.
