To make sure that no one sleeps empty stomach during the festival of Durga Puja, Indian Humanitarian Assistance (IHA) foundation is serving food to every needy person, along with providing dry ration to those people who are struggling to make ends meet following the impact of lockdown due to Covid-19.
The volunteers of IHA foundation are roaming around the streets of Kolkata to approach the people who are left with no jobs and have no other means to earn their livelihoods. They are providing such people with food.
“We have initiated a special Durga Puja drive keeping in mind that while some are staying home, and some are venturing out to enjoy the humdrum of the festivities, many are unable to feed themselves during the puja,” said IHA Foundation Chairman Satnam Singh Ahluwalia.
“We understand the protocols that are in place to stop the transmission of Covid, however, we must always remember that these protocols are made to keep us safe and healthy and not to distance ourselves from humanity and brotherhood towards the people who are suffering,” Ahluwalia added.
They are distributing the food and feeding the people at various places such as hospitals, railway stations, shelter homes and so on.
