PARTNER WITH YESHUA MINISTRIES
AS WE REACH OUT TO THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN HIT
HARDEST BY THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Our goal: $13,000. So far we have raised:
While COVID-19 keeps the whole world in its grip, the current Lockdown in India has left thousands of daily-wage workers helpless. These people have lost their income overnight and with food prices rising, they are struggling to survive and are at the risk of falling into extreme poverty and starvation. On top of that they are at increased risk of being exposed to the virus because they reside in the slums where maintaining hygiene and social distancing is nearly impossible.
At Yeshua Ministries we want to provide families, who are in desperate need, with a ration-package of 6 basic daily supplies (rice, lentils, flour, oil, milk and salt) worth 500 Indian Rupees (apprx $6.50 USD) for 2000 families that will last them for about two weeks until this lockdown is lifted.
We have partnered with 3 local organisations that we personally know and trust to make and distribute the ration packets ethically:
2 Weeks worth
$6.50 per family
Even in non-pandemic times Vision Rescue daily feeds and educates hundreds of slum children in Mumbai. Since the lockdown Vision Rescue has already handed out nearly 100,000 meals and a month’s worth of ration to 200 families in different slums in Mumbai.
NLMET (New Life Medical & Educational Trust) has been working in the Malwani slum in Malad (one of the most notorious slums in Mumbai) for the last 30 years. From their facility they have been distributing ration packets to families in need in their area.
