Since strict lockdown from March 21st 2020 Atma Seva has focused on Rations Relief for below poverty level families, now jobless, daily wage earners with no backup or support to feed their hungry families.
The situation is dire. Many are itinerant labourers not beggars but proud working men and women. Through extraordinary Grace from the Divine Powers that be, funds have flowed in from yogis, friends, family and openhearted kindness and trust of previously unknown souls from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Cambodia, Denmark, Germany, Hawaii, Hungary, India, Ireland, Lebanon and UK which has made it possible, by May 31st for 589 families with 2905 mouths between to have received in slums and villages in 14 locations in 6 states.
Family Ration ‘kits’ with 14 items cost 1200 rupees each (USD 16, EUR 14.5, GBP 13, AUD 24.5 & CAD 22.5 at the time of writing). They last for 18 to 21 days. We continue to do what we can with what we receive. With zero administration costs every cent and penny goes directly to our beneficiaries.
