Thank you to everyone who has purchased Relief Kits. Through your generosity we've distributed food to the poorest of the poor in our Indian community – those who've been drastically impacted by Covid lock downs. We can't thank you enough for joining us in this!
Keep reading (and watching!) to see what your efforts have helped to achieve!
As a reminder, each Relief Kit contains: 10 kg of rice, 10 kg of flour, lentils and chickpeas, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, oil and salt. Each kit allowed us to feed two families for a week.
August 15, 2021 Update:
- Together, we've fed 650 families by giving out 15,000 kgs of food.
June 21, 2021 Update:
- Over 350 Relief Kits have been distributed!
- We continue to give out food and will be making a special trip this week to a remote village to assist those who are in severe need
June 12, 2021 Update:
- 272 Relief Kits have been purchased!
- Approximately 540 families have been supported. We say approximately, because some folks have been in such dire situations or have larger families so we've opted to provide them with two kits––including 1 family, that received help, who have 8 children and their mother just passed away
- All this equates to over $7300 USD having been given in support of these relief kits!
