As we know, Coronavirus pandemic crisis is hitting the entire world. In this time of unprecedented crisis, India has decided to extend the lockdown until May 17th. This means all economic activity except essential businesses are closed to contain the spread of the virus. However, while this is necessary to maintain public health in India, it is also adversely affecting the people in various ways.
In India, the worst affected are the poor people who depend on daily wage work to keep the lights on in their homes. Lockdown has also been especially difficult time for the poor and homeless people in India who do not have government identities to take advantage of the government programs of rationing etc.
In order to help the needy, our team of a few youths have been providing free vegetarian meals to the poor and homeless population of Bhagalpur everyday.
Currently, we are distributing about 3600 food packets everyday in the Bhagalpur area. The numbers keep increasing as we expand to other poor neighborhoods. We are looking for your help so we can continue our operation in service of the needy.
Our material expenses is currently about ₹30000 everyday. The cooks and distributers are all volunteering their time, so this expenses includes food preparation, packing and distribution costs only across two centers.
We are looking for your help to continue this bhandaara to keep our cultural values alive. We have two centers operating and we want to raise funds to keep the food distribution effort running at least until the end of lockdown.
