Rise Against Hunger India has been very active during COVID-19 crisis and thanks to support from donors like HPE and its employees, we were able to serve over 3 millions meals to vulnerable groups in 38 Districts across the country. The meal recipients belonged to the lowest strata of the society, comprising of daily wage workers, construction workers, contract laborers, street vendors as well as those under residential care programs such as orphanages, elderly care homes, disabled institutions etc.
While most of the migrant daily wage workers have been able to find some economic activities to earn their livelihood, there are still many who need continued support in the form of our nutritious meals. Rise Against Hunger India is supporting over 10,000 people on a regular basis and they would continue to need food assistance. Since meal packaging events are completely put on hold by corporate sponsors, we are depending on the volunteer donations to organize meals for these groups.
At times like this, we need help from all sources so that we can serve many more needy people. Our sincere thanks to HPE team for their kind gesture to support our efforts.
