covid-19: war against hunger
When the nationwide lockdown was imposed by the Government of India, the Lives of millions of migrant laborers, daily wage workers, rag-pickers, house-helps, street vendors came to a standstill. The woes to access basic services without daily income led the low-income communities to slip into a high-risk community. Their inability to access one full square meal for a family, increased their movement in and out of their shelter in search of food, leading to increased chances of being infected. This was an ever-increasing community, the population of which was directly proportional to the increase in the number of lockdown days.
We at Prabhaav Foundation, believe in creating an impact on the lives of people. We believe change starts with “Me” and we have walked into this with a promise that food should be the least of the concern of every man, woman, and child.
The health crisis and lockdown of the entire country had created an unprecedented situation across the country. As problems do, they impact the most vulnerable, severely. The absence of food security, lack of sense of basic hygiene and non-availability of basic protective gear in the low income groups has made them even more vulnerable during COVID 19 pandemic.
To help them in this hour of need, we at Prabhaav Foundation have reached out to the underprivileged section of society with Food packs, which include kitchen staples. It’s a challenging task to arrange for funds and material and its dissemination to the needy, made more difficult by this complete lockdown. We are motivated by the necessity to reach out to the neediest in time and also, the support of kind and generous supporters. Till date we have distributed in excess of 5,20,000 meals equivalent food packs in slums in Delhi. This distribution is being done in partnership with local Police which is taking the onus of distribution of food packs.
