Thousands of daily wage labourers are impacted because of COVID-19. While the lockdown may be lifted soon, the plight of these workers will remain the same for at least another 45 days. The government will provide some of them with relief packages. but we need to understand that the task is massive. Many are not registered, are migrant labour and need our help to survive this crisis. We are giving RATION PACKS to these families that will last them for 15-days. Each pack for a family of four costs just INR 1500.
Funds from this campaign will be utilized in Delhi & NCR.
CONTENTS OF THE RATION PACK
My name is VANSHIKA GANDHI. I am 15 years old and in Grade 10 at the step-by-step School, Noida.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us in different ways. Perhaps the hardest hit is the daily wage earners, migrant labour and the financially poor. Suddenly they are without any source of income, and they are not able to provide food or the basic hygiene facilities to their families. They fear starvation more than the virus itself. At this juncture, we, the more privileged sections of the society need to step up to support them in this difficult time. The lockdown being extended puts an additional burden on them.
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. Let's come together and do our bit to help our fellow countrymen.

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 through crowdfunding. 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.
