As we live and practice social distancing, stocking rations, isolating our worlds, and adopting a work-from-home culture, there is a part of our society that still has no food for the next meal, no roof over their heads, no work. The COVID-19 crisis continues to disproportionately hurt millions of urban poor living in slums across major cities in India.
While the government will provide some of them with relief packages we need to understand that the task is massive. Many are not registered, are migrant labourers and need our help to survive this crisis.
SAMARPAN FOUNDATION (www.samarpanfoundation.org) has been doing what they can to support daily wage labour families and those in need during this pandemic by providing them with ration kits.
Funds from this campaign will be utilised across NCR.
1) Fund INR 3000 and impact 2 families.
2) Fund INR 6000 and impact 4 families.
3) Fund INR 15000 and impact 10 families.
This campaign is being done in partnership with SAMARPAN FOUNDATION. All funding has 80G benefits.
COMPONENTS OF THE RATION KIT:
My name is UTKARSH TYAGI, I am 22 years old and a Software engineer at TCS.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us in different ways. Perhaps the hardest hit is the daily wage earners, migrant labourers, and the financially poor. Suddenly they are without any source of income, and they are not able to provide food to their families. They fear starvation more than the virus itself.
Through this initiative, we aim to help provide ration kits to underprivileged families. I request all of you to support my campaign so that we can ensure that no one stays hungry. The funds collected from this crowdfunding campaign would transform their lives and bring them much-needed relief.
Let's come together and do our bit.

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 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.
