covid-19: war against hunger
This pandemic has challenged mankind both mentally and physically. The last two years have been devastating as we continue to learn to live in this new normal. The pandemic has been striking us in waves and the crisis during the first wave was lack of food supplies while it was the medical supplies and care along with food shortage in the second wave.
In 2020, a nationwide lockdown was imposed by the Government of India and the lives of millions of migrant laborers, daily wage workers, rag-pickers, house-helps, street vendors came to a standstill. Their inability to access one full square meal for a family increased their movement in and out of their shelter. The lack of sense of basic hygiene and the non-availability of basic protective gear made them even more vulnerable during this COVID 19 pandemic.
To help them in this hour of need, Prabhaav Foundation reached out with Ration Food packs and cooked meals. In 2020 we distributed and supported 16000 families in the slums of Delhi NCR in partnership with the special police force which disseminated the packs on ground. In 2021, cooked meals and dry ration were distributed to more than 8000 families and the effort still continues. Our geographical reach was Delhi NCR, Jammu, Rajasthan and Odisha.
Art and culture gives a tapestry to the Nation. India having an array of art forms, the artisans saw a major hit on their livelihood due to complete shutdown of tourism. Prabhaav Foundation provided ration packets to sustain them and continues to provide market linkages to keep their art alive.
The second wave crumbled the health care system of India. Prabhaav with the support of ICICI LOMBARD stepped in to provide oxygen concentrators in various states of India like Delhi NCR, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra. Prabhaav Foundation supported the Delhi Police and local district administrations with additional PPE kits, Sanitisers etc. As people suffered from the pandemic lots of surplus medicines were left with them. These were further distributed to the needy.
Our motto is that a society will grow only when people move ahead and adapt themselves to the changing times.
