Story


In the face of the novel Coronavirus pandemic, the country is now in week 4 of an unprecedented complete lockdown. While many struggle to cope with the social and financial implications of this, the brunt falls on our daily-wage workers who, for each day in lockdown, lose another day of their livelihood. For some people, lockdown means even an inability to access daily meals.  In an attempt to work with them through these trying times, Mayuri appeals to you to join us in collecting basic staple food to send to daily wage workers in the villages around Kolkata.


Phase 1:

  • Distributed 4000 food bags to daily wage workers and their families
  • Distributed 9000 cooked meals to people in bastis


Aim for Phase 2: 'Breathe Safe, India'

  • Distribution of 10,000 masks and soaps in these areas
  • Help another 6000 families with food



Responding to the WHOs directives of wearing masks and recognizing the lack of availability of masks and other protective gear in these areas. We have partnered with local tailors to stitch simple 2 layers masks. 

With our Breathe Safe, India campaign we hope to support local tailors as well as equip people in bastis and villages with basic safety gear.


We hope to come together to get through these times full of uncertainty and fear of the future.


Thank you for your support!
