FCRA – 083930412

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Maharashtra has been hit the hardest. We have selected Annapurna Parivar – a group of 6 NGOs that provide microcredit and other services like daycare in the slums of Mumbai and Pune. They have a well-established food distribution system to reach people in low income areas.

Annapurna has worked out a relief strategy that includes food packets at Rs. 1,000 per packet. These packets include grains, salt, oil, and masala and will last an average family for 15 days. The Maharashtra Foundation has funded 500 food packets, for a total of $6,765.

While this will help mitigate the short-term suffering in the area, the situation is dire, and they will need continued support.
