Amidst the pandemic of Corona virus, there is lack of awareness, accurate factual information and proper guidance for precautionary and preventive measures in under privileged communities and slums of Ahmedabad.With authorities shutting down key institutions nationally, sputtering economy hurts the most vulnerable and leaves the daily wage earner with no livelihood. Saath , through its various initiatives is engaged with over 1,00,000 families residing in the urban slum areas of Vasna, Behrampura, Juhapura, Sanklitnagar ,Vatva and Old city. These communities mainly comprise of informal sector whose earning is based on daily work received. With Janta Curfew and the “labour nakas” in the city at which workers gather in the mornings to seek employment being discouraged and having failed to obtain work for three consecutive days, panic and stress is increasing within these communities.In order to help them overcome the challenge of procuring monthly Ration, SAATH proposes to procure and distribute Ration Kits (oil, grains, pulses, sugar, salt and basic supplies) to families residing in the slum areas.To meet these immediate need of ration and basic supplies , each Ration Kit costs Rs. 1,200/- or $17 and will cater to the need of one household. These kits will have the following flour, rice, sugar, oil, tea, jaggery, suji, mug dal, tuver dal, spices, and rice.
