Today, we are facing the wrath of coronavirus. It has snatched the breath out of so many and it has cast a deadly spell over the world. Humans are forced to stay in the confines of our homes, our mobility has been prohibited, and COVID-19 has cut the cords of human touch and human interaction. People have turned a deaf year to the cries of the people who are longing for a decent meal. With almost 73 million people living in extreme poverty. The repercussions of the invisible enemy (COVID -19) has led them to turn their sweat into the blood for a loaf of bread. It has hit the lower sections of the society thus pushing them towards poverty. With each passing day, thousands of people are succumbing to hunger and the rest are scavenging for food. This has posed a question in front of us. Is it possible to feed millions of people and how can it be done? The bins are being rummaged by the rag pickers and poor kids which is the major source of food to them. In times like these, iCFDR has rushed to the aid of daily wage workers and the marginalised folks. It has been running a campaign to provide nutritious food to the ones wailing for it.
While the common people are in fear of stepping out of their cocoons. ICFDR has ahead on a journey to be a light to the ones in despair. The bold warriors of iCFDR are marching forward to feed the hungry. It has targeted the daily wage workers, the lower-income level, farmers, underprivileged, and all those whose means of income and livelihood has been threatened by COVID-19. These folks are not only running out of food but are also lagging health kits and another basic necessitates. So far, our NGO has distributed free essential food items to the poor and marginalised with the service of door-step delivery.
Our foundation has rendered its services to thousands of corona hit households. It is constantly on their toes to provide help to the ones seeking it. To the uninitiated, it has equipped a number of people with full-fledged facts about Coronavirus and the preventive measures that can be adopted.
