Challenge

Coronavirus is spreading fast in India. There is a complete lockdown across the country. Many people who depend on daily wages are losing income as they cannot go to work. A large share of the workforce in India is in the unorganized sector like the daily wagers, the construction labourers, farmers, auto drivers et cetera. These people do not have the means to survive except for their daily wages. Most of them will exhaust their monthly supplies and are staring at an uncertain future.

Solution

This project will prevent starvation among several poor families by providing them food packet consisting of Rice, Dal, Oil, Turmeric, Salt and Mirchi. The support will reach the most marginalized families in a few districts of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help many poor families from starvation, making sure their health and well-being are not compromised.
