Not only Government, The NGOs also playing the most important role to Help The Underprivileged Facing The COVID-19 Lockdown. The Delhi-based NGO, Wishes and Blessings, realising the urgency and importance of the issue of starvation amid the COVID-19 lockdown started executing relief with nutrition kits from the first day of the lockdown itself
Before the lockdown was imposed, the organisation was serving 3 meals a day to over 600 underprivileged people across NCR, under our flagship project- The Daily Meals Programme. However, the NGO scaled up operations and in the first week of the lockdown itself, they served cooked food to over 9,000 people across NCR and have grown ever since then.
The organisation, at its peak, has served meals to 15,000 homeless and daily wagers, which accounts to 45,000 meals per day and provided ration kits to over 8,300 families
The numbers have fluctuated due to several reasons including availability of funds and the actual need on the ground. As of 19th May, NGO have served 12,60,620 meals, distributed 35,552 ration kits to over 9,000 families and over 10,000 hygiene kits across 7 states.
