Covid-19 Relief work update (19th & 20th April)
Yesterday and today were a bit unusual. We went to ‘pucca’ slums in Akerere where we distributed 100 coupons yesterday and 150 coupons today. Against this, each family can go to the nearby grocer/trader and get 5 kg rice and 1 kg dal. What was interesting was that this is the only way distribution is possible in these cramped clusters. Each 10ftx10ft room has 2 to 6 persons or a family living. In front of the room is a 4-foot-wide ‘corridor’ and opposite is another set of rooms. There is a common toilet(s) at the end. Old, young, small kids, men, women, all live here.
Physical distribution continues as well. The Adilabad Kollam tribe ration distribution is going on smoothly. We have a lot to cover now that we discovered these types of people as well. So please ask your friends for donations and spread the word around. Thanks to everyone for the already generous donations.
