A Delhi-based NGO has executed a Covid relief campaign for marginalized communities in Rajasthan
In its commitment to provide essential aid to people in need, the Delhi-based NGO, Wishes and Blessings, executed a ration campaign for marginalized communities and disadvantaged families in Dholpur district of Rajasthan.
Around 100 people who identify with the transgender community, sex workers and disadvantaged families received essential food support through this campaign. This campaign was executed as part of Phase VI of the NGO Covid relief project, “Dabba Bhara Hai”. All safety standards regarding the Covid-19 pandemic have been strictly adhered to throughout this relief campaign.
“Due to an upsurge in Covid-19 cases since January 2022, we at Wishes and Blessings have decided to launch Phase VI of our Covid relief project with our new ‘Dabba Bhara Hai’ campaign. , we are working to ensure that food resources remain available to marginalized and disadvantaged people during these critical times.As a society, it is our collective responsibility to ensure that no one goes to sleep hungry, regardless of their gender identity, profession, religion and other social distinctions,” said Dr. Geetanjali Chopra, Founder and President of Wishes and Blessings.
“The third corona wave has been merciless to us to say the least. We had been left without basic survival resources during these difficult times, including food and sanitary materials. This is largely due to the unfortunate pre-existing social stigma associated with our community. We are grateful to the Wishes and Blessings team for reaching out and providing us with rations and hygiene kits. We really appreciate this act of kindness and give our blessings to the organization and Dr Geetanjali Chopra,” says Devika, Transgender Community Representative, Dholpur, Rajasthan.
Each ration kit is enough to meet the needs of a family of 5 members for 2 weeks and includes rice, pulses, aata (flour), sugar, soybeans, spices, oil, masks, soaps, etc. The ground team ensured that the distribution of ration kits was going smoothly with strict social distancing. Through their Covid Relief Project, Wishes and Blessings has been providing immediate and long-term relief to those in need since March 2020.
The Wishes and Blessings Covid relief project was officially launched on the first day of the lockdown i.e. March 25, 2020 and has provided relief and aid in 8 states across India. Since then, the team has served more than 30,000,000 meals, distributed 80,000 dry ration kits and provided 30,000 hygiene kits to beneficiaries. Wishes and Blessings had launched the WB Ambulances for Covid Relief project in August 2020, in which free transport was provided to disadvantaged people to reach treatment centers and carry out tests in quarantine areas. Currently, the Covid Relief Project is active in 3 states – Delhi, Jharkhand and West Bengal, and aims to meet the immediate and long-term needs of the needy and destitute affected by the Covid-19 crisis.
