Mumbai, April 14, 2020: India’s leading independent PR and Digital Agency, Kaizzen, will be supporting RAHI (Rise Against Hunger India) with 20,000 meals for the most vulnerable groups impacted by the ongoing Covid19 pandemic, including daily wage workers, construction workers, contract labourers and street vendors. The 20,000 meals will be distributed in partnership with RAHI, a leading NGO that is working towards hunger eradication, with currently an increased focus on providing meals to COVID-19 impacted communities.
According to Vineet Handa, Founder & CEO, Kaizzen, “With the current lockdown being extended till May 3, 2020, the vulnerable sections of society including daily wage workers will be even more severely impacted, with their continued loss of livelihood. Meals form the most important aspect of sustaining and saving lives. This is a small gesture of support by Kaizzen, on behalf of the Indian Public Relations fraternity, to help people most impacted by the Covid19 pandemic.”
According to Dola Mohapatra, Executive Director, Rise Against Hunger India, “We are thankful to Kaizzen for coming forward to support 20,000 meals for the most vulnerable groups impacted by COVID-19. Even if we take conservative estimates, about half a million such people will require support in Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Hyderabad alone. These are difficult and unprecedented times and we would urge Corporates, large business houses and other organisations to come forward and contribute their bit in providing basic food to these people and prevent them from succumbing to hunger.”
In addition to food, RAHI is also planning to mobilise essentials like cooking oil, spices, masks etc. which can be utilised by these people.
