Goal

We have developed a plan to distribute free food kits to those who need them most critically, in order to stem the tide of starvation and malnutrition in the area.  Food packages contained rice, oil, dal, chili, coriander, turmeric powder, mustard, garlic, sugar, salt, etc. In the first phase, we reached out to 1,500 families in 15 villages. Most of them are daily coolies who usually work in brick kilns, rice mills, sugarcane fields and woodworking. The long-term impact of the shutdown will be starvation deaths and destitution. We are desperately trying to address the resulting food insecurity.


Our immediate goal is to raise $100,000 U.S., which would allow us to feed and equip with sanitation 7,500 impoverished families, at a cost of approximately 1,000 Indian rupees per family ($15 U.S).  I have no words to describe the hiddenness and desperation of many of these families, who have no lifeline of support, beyond what we can provide. Our district was already economically backward and underdeveloped, before the virus hit. Now? The situation is truly pathetic. Although our efforts are but a drop in the ocean of need that covers this economically backward and under-developed district, our humanity and our faith both require us to do what we can to stem this tide of human suffering.
