Each lost life is a deadly reminder of the vulnerability of humankind.
India is an important country in terms of our global fight against the pandemic. It is also a country where a huge scale of vaccine manufacturing facilities exist. There are several mutations being identified and these will show up in other parts of the world. As the largest democracy in the world and with its diversified young population, India has a promising future. To enable India is to enable the future of the world.
While millions are projected to die due to this catastrophe, several millions face a plight. This plight is in contrast to the basis of the human society - a basic human right to get food.
As we noticed last year during the challenging times of the first COVID-19 wave, the most vulnerable in India were left without food security. This wave or future pandemic waves are not going to change this dismal reality a lot. And this divide is becoming increasingly visible as the world navigates through this crisis. Our solution is to reinforce this system positively with refined ideas of social and transparent aid.
During this state of health crisis, where communities are unable to cope, philanthropic funding is often quickly available. However, it is essential to reach the most affected and most vulnerable populations.
Our impact group: In semi urban and semi rural regions, with its millions of citizens, the pandemic has led to daily wage and unorganised workforce losing their livelihood and sustenance. India’s growth story and market opportunities depended strongly on its middle class households. And they are also impacted either with the disease or the after-effects of an unorganised pandemic response. A huge group of lower middle class households have either lost their breadwinners to COVID-19 or the families have lost their livelihoods due to the pandemic. Statistically, this vulnerable group of daily wage workers and their families have zero to little savings. Most of them are non banked and underbanked. With loss of livelihood, imagine the harsh circumstances that these families are going through right now. They need help and aid in a way that can bring them out of the crisis. Providing food is critical to prevent an exacerbating hunger crisis alongside this health crisis.
With our Food Aid, Muellners Foundation will set up kitchens and provide meals or food ration packets to people in need. The food aid will be distributed to on ground civic authorities and front line workers such as Municipality Departments, Police Departments and other local NGO partners, including representatives of people.
Where the proceeds go to: 100 % of all donations will be allocated to the
a. Procuring of Food packets.
b. Provisions for personal protective equipment for the distributors and social workers, engaged in this initiative.
c. Technology Development & Maintenance by Foundation to digitize the initiative.
We understand that these measures are only short-term solutions to the crisis. However, India must overcome this state of emergency, get the pandemic under control before people can get back to work and the economy is moving again. Until then, we must help India and especially its most vulnerable with a first response.
Our volunteers are working day and night on this COVID-19 relief through social, financial and technical means.
