Feed the Hungry
COVID-19 as a pandemic is not only affecting people with the deadly virus but has unleashed unbearable suffering. The unprecedented lockdown turned out to be catastrophic for the poor in India. The daily wagers, drivers, maids, auto-rickshaw drivers, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, street vendors, artisans, sex workers and many more sections of this society support their families from the day’s earnings. IF THE VIRUS WON'T KILL THEM, THE HUNGER WILL
NamMyoho Daan, an initiative launched by Garima Arora, Kanika Dhillon and Ness Wadia have joined hands with Phool Versha foundation lead by Ravindernath Sharma and Amit Sharma with a single agenda of ensuring that lives cannot be lost due to starvation. Food is a fundamental right and our cause is to help the segment of society which is deprived from it. No one should die of hunger in these dire times.
Supporting the Transgenda Community
In a country of 1.3 billion, the transgender community constitutes of approximately 2 million, who are probably worst hit by this pandemic because they make their living either by begging on the streets or through social interaction. They are extensively working towards creating awareness about LGBT community across India so that some respect and aid can be provided to them.
