As we all know, Corono virus infection is spreading very rapidly all over the country. Coronovirus is proved to be deadly and is threatening the entire human race. Till date, over 6,50,000 people have been killed by this lethal virus across the world.

Evidently, Corono virus (Covid19) is spreading at a rapid pace in most of the states of India, including our state Tamil Nadu. There is a sense of fear and bewilderment among the general public. Central and State governments have started imposing various preventive measures to control the outbreak. Many metropolitan cities and big towns have been put under partial closure like closure of Shopping Malls, Restaurants, Schools, Colleges, and Business Complexes. Even SMEs (Small Medium Enterprises) have also been affected by this clamp down. Small eat-outs, shops, textile units, furniture outlets all have been shut down now.

COVID-19 has terribly affected the Homeless people in our town. They do not have proper shelter and safe roof over their heads. They eat and sleep under the fly over, interconnecting bridges, railway lines and also on the platforms of the main and artillery roads of the cities. They do not have means to buy food and drinking water. Most of them go to bed without a meal nowadays. It is really an emergency situation. There are children, sick men and women, elderly and they are in a very precarious situation and they are all waiting for some helping souls to look after them. They will not be able to withstand hunger for a longer duration. India may witness, sooner or later a massive hunger crisis.

Therefore, it is very important for us to save lives of our fellow citizens by feeding them with at least one meal a day. Towards this objective, Bharathamatha Family Welfare Foundation has come up with a Hunger Relief Drive for those Homeless persons though our ambitious project MOBILE FOOD BANK FOR HOMELESS PEOPLE in Thanjavur, Nagapattinam and Thiruvarur Districts of Tamil Nadu. We will feed all the needy homeless persons with a pack of Tamarind Rice / Curd Rice / Lemon Rice and a Drinking water bottle at night.

Budget: Per one Beneficiary for one month @ 20$ X 500 Beneficiaries/per month=10000$ X12 Months=120,000$

Description

Bharathamatha Family Welfare Foundation (formerly known as Bharathamatha Women’s Awareness Center) was founded in the year 1989 by Mr. Edaiyoor R.V. Manimaran, a disciple of "Boomithana Vallal" R.V. Rahavan. R.V. Rahavan was a disciple of Shri. Vinoba Bhave. Even after free distribution (Boomi Dhan) of lands to poor people, the poor continued to suffer due to poor knowledge and access to financial services. Bharathamatha Family Welfare Foundation decided to help these people sustain the benefits they have gotten and improve them socially, economically and culturally.

For more than 28 years, Bharathamatha Foundation has been helping the poor and marginalized communities have access to financial, technical and institutional support in order to improve and strengthen their livelihood opportunities. Bharathamatha Family Welfare Foundation presently works with 21 private and public development aid agencies to reach out to 92,000 households in Thiruvarur, Nagapattinam, and Thanjavur Districts of Tamil Nadu, further Bharathamatha works for the welfare of the children, women and marginalized communities in 870 villages. Bharathamatha Family Welfare Foundation was at the forefront in helping the families affected by Tsunami (24th December 2004) by providing relief materials to the badly affected people besides coordinating with and supporting various relief agencies to deliver their services to numerous coastal communities. Bharathamatha provided relief services to 8,000 households in 21 Tsunami affected villages.
