The COVID-19 pandemic and deteriorating economic situation globally has pushed many of those most vulnerable even deeper into extreme poverty. Besides the tragic toll on human life, with countries shutting their borders and doing quarantines, economies have taken a huge hit.
The tragedy has taken a heavy toll on the Indian economy and the job losses are mounting, especially among the daily wage workers. Many laborers have lost their informal daily wages, and now face severe levels of food insecurity.
MIWF is committed to feeding these poor families to the best of its ability. We are identifying poor families through our volunteer teams who are working on the ground.
Alhamdulillah with the support of our generous donors, our teams completed Phase-2 of the Ramadan Helpfeed project and distributed the Ration packets to 2030 families so far in Kutch, Mysuru, Bengaluru, Solapur, Kolkata, Mumbai, Imphal, Aurangabad, Bokaro, Allahabad and Hyderabad. Community kitchens providing cooked meals are also operational in 5 locations.
Please donate generously to those hardest hit by COVID-19 lockdown, so that we continue feeding the needy families with your Zakat/ Sadaqa and Fidya donations.
