Since the last few months, a campaign led by ‘Khaana Chahiye’ Foundation has emerged as a life saver for the people suffering financially and socially due to the pandemic. It is a NGO which aims to meet the immediate, lockdown-induced food demands of the homeless, migrant workers, daily wage laborers, and other vulnerable populations in the city of Mumbai. It was founded on 29 March 2020 and is powered by 200+ citizen volunteers.
Along with the immediate relief, ‘Khaana Chahiye’ conducts advocacy efforts through its policy intervention – ‘The Hunger Map Project’ which is shaped to achieve United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. It is an evidence-based policy intervention aimed at improving the already existing system by identifying critical pockets in the city which require urgent assistance and come up with effective solutions. It aims to propose a model of relief methods with an active participation from the civil society in coordination with the local government infrastructure.
I request you and the editorial board to kindly assign a journalist to further pursue this story in detail. This will spread awareness in the minds of the citizens of our nation towards the financial and social issues faced by the underprivileged and encourage them to play an active role towards contributing in such efforts by putting in their resources, time and energy for a cause. Moreover, the increased attention upon this campaign will allow the foundation to gather more funds to make a greater impact.
I am certain that the campaigning for this projects’ funds will gain traction from all people sensitive towards the consequences such as hunger and lack of facilities faced by the underprivileged due to the pandemic. People who are concerned and looking for opportunities to contribute towards a meaningful cause in this difficult time will also willingly support.
