RSKS India Family wishes you a Happy #GivingTuesday!
The Covid-19 pandemic brought a lot of problems to the people living in slums. Employment was completely closed during the Corona period. People living in slums used to work as daily wages, but after that work was completely stopped, they started facing financial problem and problem of ration in the house. In such a situation, there was not a single grain left in the house of poor people. After borrowing money, they would bring a little bit of ration in the house and would use little by little.
RSKS India organized relief programs by marking such slums. 250 needy families were identified in 6 slums of the city. Ration kits were distributed by the organization to 250 families. When these poor people came to know that they would get ration from the organization, there was no place for their happiness. The organization distributed ration to all the people while following social distance. This ration material had 20 kg dry ration, which had flour, pulses, oil, soap, spices, etc. With this ration kit, people in the slum area burnt the stove again and got a lot of food.
Now these people are living a worry-free life and their whole family is getting food on time. This ration kit will ensure three weeks food supply of these people. All the families praise this noble work of the organization. The slum dwellers thank the RSKS Organization and all the donors wholeheartedly as because of their invaluable support, their life is now back to normal. Now these people are taking more steps of employment apart from the worry of ration so that they do not have to face ration and economic problems in the coming time.

In the Corona period, people have had to face problems from all four sides, including every section of the society. There is one such class which runs on the skills of its art, people who make idols, toys and Ravana. These people have seasonal employment which runs during the time of festival. The rest of the time they do not have employment. Due to Covid 19, the entire market has been cold, so the seasonal employment of this people is also not going on. In this situation, the problem of rationing came before these artisans.
The RSKS organization extended a helping hand to the artisans and their families who are making sculptures, toys and ravanas etc.
The organization identified such artisans in the urban area and distributed ration materials to their family members.
Ration by the organization was providing quick relief as this ration material had things like flour, pulses, salt, various spices, soaps, oils, etc.
Food security of these poor people was ensured with ration kits.
An Small Impacts:-
With the relief of the ration received by the organization, the food security of these poor families was ensured.
Now they are getting food on time and there is no need to spread their hands in front of anyone.
These people are following the Covid-19 security given by the organization completely.
Now they are getting a dignified life and have become fearless and engaged in their employment.
Once again thank you so much for your valuable Support.
RSKS INDIA is working for COVID-19 Humanitarian Relief and is always taking new steps for that. From time to time we see the impact stories from ground by our feedback forms. Some of these real stories is shared in this report.
An Impact: Meet with Beneficiary Rukma .....
My name is Rukma (Name Changed)and I am 39 years old. I live in a hut with my family in a slum which is far away from the city. In my family, I have my husband and 4 children. My husband earned by singing and playing drum and I also worked in people’s houses in order to earn for our daily livelihood. Covid-19 pandemic snatched our employment away from us. My husband and I got unemployed. We started facing financial problems at first and then after this we started facing ration problems. With many difficulties we were able to feed our children but me and my husband have to sleep hungry so many times.
In the meantime, RSKS India gave helping hand to us. RSKS India marked our slum and did ration distribution here in which I also received a ration kit. I cannot describe that moment in words when I got ration kit and when I opened that ration kit I got more happy as it contained 20 kg flour, pulses, salt, oil, spices, sugar, soap etc things which my family needed the most. This ration kit secured my 3 weeks or more food need. When I told all this to me husband then he said even today humanity is alive and RSKS India showed humanity towards poor people like us and made us happy.
Now me and my family is not having any tension as previously every night we were thinking about from where we will get ration. Now me and my family are getting two times meal on time and we have started to think about new employment rather than thinking from where we will get ration. I do pray every day that this type of crisis should never come to anyone. Me and my family thanks RSKS India from bottom of our heart as only because of them poor people like us got food security.
Many Thanks Team RSKS India
