With the rampant spread of COVID-19 across the country, regional lockdowns are once again being put in place. These lockdowns are putting socio-economically disadvantaged people, who have barely recovered since the last lockdown, at risk once again.

This initiative will feed those impacted by COVID in NCR and UP. Each meal costs just INR 22.
1)Fund 2200 and 100 meals are served.
2)Fund 4400 and bring joy 200 times.
3)Fund 6600 and help serve 300 meals.
ABOUT ME & THIS CAMPAIGN
My name is Mangesh Mahi Roy. I am 15 years old and in Grade 11th at DPS Greater Noida.
The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected India. In these unprecedented times, people have been struggling to keep their heads above water. For the poor, it has been a nightmare. With their incomes vanishing, they find it hard to afford even 2 square meals. It's not the fear of the virus but the fear of not being able to feed their families and the feeling of helplessness that has been bringing the lower strata of the economy down. They are in great need of help.
I recently learnt about Akshaya Patra's noble cause under which they are serving food to people in the NCR. Through this campaign, I want to extend my support to the initiative and help feed the people in need. I request all of you to help. Even the smallest of donations will be of great help. Your help would change the lives of many and give them hope for the future.
Let's all come together and help this brilliant initiative.

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.
