Hunger Alleviation Food Project during Covid Pandemic


Jaipur: SETU Society is a non-profit organization based in Vidhyut Nagar, Jaipur, managed by Rashmi and Devendra Dhariwal. The Society is engaged in social, economic & environmental upliftment of the needy masses by creating livelihood opportunities for them. With the outburst of Covid pandemic, millions of poor workers are now jobless with no money and resources to feed themselves and their families. They are not beggars, but the poor daily wage laborers who have no one to support them at this time.
And so SETU continued its Food distribution project even in the lockdowns of Covid-19. Wholesome & fresh food packets are being distributed to 200 poor laborers every day. This is a daily program, food includes nutritional green vegetables & chapatis, packed in a ready to distribute pack. The food is distributed with the help of local police (Shyam Nagar Police Station, Jaipur), playing a commendable role in managing the crowd and ensuring social distancing & safety norms.

This is distributed completely free of cost to these people. In addition to this, they have provided grocery & hygiene kits to approx. 200 families in tribal regions of Orissa.
Till date, they have provided nutritious food to more than 7,000 people during this lockdown period itself. The project is still running continuously, but the demand is increasing day by day. Their target is to increase the count to 500 people every day. Thanks to these coronawarriors who are not at the forefronts but have helped a lot in this coronalockdown situation.
