Donate money for covid 19 relief - HUNGER RELIEF PROGRAMME’

Why you should Donate money for covid 19 relief . Phase-wise unlocking of Lock down imposed on 25 th March,20 has started 3 months back and the country is gearing up for a full swing economic activities.However,  an  impetus is required by a financial booster dose for the declining business to catch the race. During these phases of  unlocking, unimagined and uncontrolled  speed of Corona infection in the country as a result people however face  cut in salary or forced leave, mounting household bills on essentials, lack of demand domestically and internationally, protectionism, border tensions, floods, cyclones, unprecedented decline in growth, disinvestments and its consequent  cascading effects  generating fear of joblessness especially amongst slightly upper middle aged persons. Hotel and Tourism, travel and transport, manufacturing, beauty saloons, schools, celebration and marriage halls and gardens,  cinema halls and malls, Gyms, construction, smaller nursing homes and hospitals etc are worst affected and are showing signs of serious slow down. Seventy five percent of employment generating MSME units are functioning with less than half capacity. Last quarter growth has almost been minus 24 percent  Many renowned economists have predicted and painted a worst scenario ahead. A vicious cycle of lack of demand appears to be surfacing

As reported earlier,  after the unlocking process Mahavir International Delhi has discontinued the distribution of pre-cooked packets to the needy and distressed and instead focussed on the supply of dry ration to families of most vulnerable and have- nots to sustain them for around a month as food security. Some philanthropic and always helping hands like Safexpress Pvt.Ltd. have come forward frequently. Mahavir International website helps you to Donate money for covid 19 relief very easily from there website.

Our focus had been on now distressed low middle call families whose bread earner(s) has /have lost jobs. Still more vulnerable is the category which is living on rented

accommodation but are now rendered unemployed .Certain other initiatives like skilling to create awareness, counselling, hygiene. Many have packed luggage and shifted to their hometowns to find even worse situation of job. Social distancing, prevention and protection steps by MID, from possible Corona attack, are in the offing. The organisation’s strongly knit network of 350 and odd  members and their generous support push us to hold the hands of most  needy and vulnerable. Most are still homeless or staying in such clusters where they, besides lacking basic amenities, are struggling to put food on their plates and have no means to earn their livelihood.

MID and Vira Vision group along with our leading Sponsors and partners, NBCFDC, NSFDC, NSKFDC and CONCOR are endeavouring to contribute whatever possible way to help normalise way of living by providing hygienic security through distribution of face masks, Sanitary napkins, Soaps and Face shields.
