Sulabh’s Food initiative is about helping families that have been hit hard because of the Covid 19 pandemic and pushed into abject poverty.
Poorer families that depend on daily wages or work in the informal sector are finding it hard to afford basic food and vegetables.
The pandemic and the resulting unemployment have made India’s hunger crisis alarming.
Our food distribution initiative is about addressing immediate food insecurity by putting food relief kit directly into the hands of vulnerable people living in urban slums and remote rural areas. The objective is to complement existing welfare schemes.
Our food initiative builds on Sulabh’s success and learning experiences of our national wide sanitation initiative
