Thousands of families in the rural areas of West Bengal (Darjeeling, Ghoom- Jorebunglow, Kalimpong, Mirik, Pokhriabong, Dooars, Sundarbans, 24 Parganas & more) are struggling to keep their kitchen running through this pandemic. Many are daily wagers/ casual labourers, widows or women abandoned to fend for themselves & their children. For income, many are dependent on the MGNREGA scheme, or the tourism (working as porters, cleaners, guides etc) to support their family. There is also a large volume of traditional tea garden workers (people who pluck tea leaves for a living) who were forced to migrate to the nearby towns/ cities to work in the unskilled labour class especially from areas where the tea gardens have been closed down arbitrarily. The second wave has seen them migrating back to their hamlets and villages. An average family size is 4-5 members living in small one or two rooms houses. With no work available, it is an uphill task to feed the family. This campaign is to help these family overcome the harsh conditions till the situation becomes normal and they are able to find work to support themselves. Each Food Support Kit costs INR 1500 only and consists of dry ration items & hygiene items like 5kg Rice, 3 litres cooking oil, 3 kg pulses, 5 kgs Aata, Sugar, Salt, Spices, 4 PC's of bathing soap, toothpaste and detergent soap. Kindly come forward & help in whatever capacity you can. We also provide 80G certificates to individuals & corporates through our platform.
