Thousands of daily wage labourers are impacted because of COVID-19. While the govt will provide some of them with relief packages we need to understand that the task is massive. Many are not registered, are migrant labour and need our help to survive this crisis.
Funds from this campaign will be utilised in Mumbai.

ABOUT ME & THIS CAMPAIGN:
My name is SAGAR BILAKHIA. I am a Grade student.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us in different ways. Perhaps the hardest hit is the underprivileged sections of the society - particularly those who are daily wage earners. Suddenly they are without any source of income, and they are not able to provide food or the basic hygiene facilities to their families. At this juncture, we, the more privileged sections of the society need to step up to support them in this difficult time.
I request all of you to support my campaign so that we can also contribute to their well-being in our own small little way. The money collected from this crowdfunding campaign would be used to provide them with basic essentials for a 21-day period (Rice/Wheat/Pulses/Oil etc) and help them and their family deal with the COVID-19 pandemic in a more effective manner. Let's come together and do our bit.
BENEFICIARY LOCATIONS PLANNED

In Mumbai, we primarily work in one ward and in these trying times, we have moved to focus on providing relief material to needy families in the ward.
Funding for this campaign is eligible for tax breaks as Green Communities Foundation is a registered NGO & you can avail of benefits under section 80G of IT act.
When do I get the receipts?
The receipts will start getting processed about 4 to 6 weeks AFTER the campaign is closed and will be sent to you directly.
How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly. It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
