Lockdown "Food Distribution" Program By Krishti

A humanitarian initiative from Krishti towards social responsibility

On the 159th birth anniversary of our beloved "Kobi-Guru Rabindranath Thakur" we are so proud to remember what he said:

"I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy".

As the poet had said we are overjoyed to share with you a small step that Kristian's took towards fulfilment of a pledge taken to stand with the underprivileged section of our society. Covid-19 continues to be harsh to all of us and even more severe to the lower section of the society. "Aashray" (Calamity Care) one of the 5 moto of "Sparsh" the charity wing of Krishti did a benovalent gesture by share essential food commodities to some underprivileged friends. In line with the decision by our Managing Committee and their relentless efforts through "Sparsh" this has been made possible with three NGOs today.

The food grain kits we distributed contains the following:

Rice - 5kg Atta - 10kg Toor Dal -1kg Sugar - 2kg Tea - 250gm
Cooking Oil - 1liter Salt - 1kg Red Chill powder - 100gm Haldi powder - 100gm Dhana jeera powder - 100 gm

"Krishti" plans to distribute 209 such kits to the following recipients:

100 kits to HALWA (Habitat and Livelihood Welfare Association) for the migrant labours located in Dharavi area. These 100 family are under serve financial crunch as informed by HALWA.

50 kits to daily wage labours through GOONJ ( Long term associates with "Sparsh" in various activities). They will send us details post the distribution.

59 packets to a tribal village in Sanjay Gandhi National Forest. "Sprash" has already visited the village before the pandemic on a routine benevolent trip and found these tribal needed help desperately. The 59 families are being supported in collaboration with INSEED, a NGO helping them since long.

This pandemic is hard on everyone, holding hands is the only way we all may come out of this. May the Almighty be kind to us again!
