Thank you to everyone who has provided their support for the cause.
The initial goal was to set up an oxygen generation plant that costs ~EUR 33000 and takes 7-15(depending on availability when an order is placed) days to set up one.
Looking at the target amount and progress so far we have decided to take a more pragmatic approach and help the one in need right now rather than waiting for this fundraiser to reach its ultimate goal.
We have changed the goal of this fundraiser to " Provide food to 500 families of daily wage workers",
The goal is to aim at least 500 families, and as much as we can going forward.
Millions of poor labourers are struggling to access food and rations during the COVID lockdown to keep themselves and their families safe.
These are families who are not able to arrange even a meal for the day, most of them, because their breadwinner is in hospital due to COVID and family, struggle to cover hospital bills, lost their jobs due to lockdown, and many more.
We will be reaching to these families in the area and provide them sufficient food for 1-2 weeks at least. All the necessary items which are needed will be added to the kit and distributed.
Items added to the kit will be -
5kg flour,5kg rice,2kg gram pulse,1kg oil,2kg potatoes,2kg onions,1kg salt,Chilli powder,1kg sugar,soap,masks
This will cost around EUR 8-10 per kit.
We are not a registered NGO but people who want to serve humanity.
Please feel free to reach out in case of any questions. I will keep on sharing the updates as we buy these items and start to distribute them.
Where we will distribute?
I will transfer the money to my personal bank account(Netherlands) and then transfer it to India to my brother who will be responsible to take care of end to end process of buying, preparing, and distributing these ration kits.
We will be distributing these food kits to daily wage workers living in and around Rudrapur, Uttrakhand.
I am a working professional in the Netherlands. Like a lot of others, I have been moved by the unexpected and unprecedented rise in COVID in India and as it is our janambhoomi, while we can't be on the ground, this is our way of doing and you all are playing a very important role. My family and I are working to help the people in villages that are yet not reached by NGOs working to help.
It is really important right now to help as these times have multiple challenges for the poor be it not getting vaccines, oxygen, and food. Let's do our part and support India with all means we can and pray for the once suffering as everything counts!
