The Mirani Foundation has been a long-time supporter of ASHA for Education’s Mumbai Chapter. It’s been a regular part of our giving. Their mission to lift impoverished children up out of poverty by giving them excellent educational opportunites aligns with our mission. Unfortunately the global pandemic has made that a challenge. It’s one they are meeting by creating distance learning opportunities – always putting the children first. During this crisis they have also stepped up and created a grocery distribution drive to help provide for the food needs of the community.
Asha Mumbai is accelerating and extending its grocery drive as Mumbai enters lock-down 4.0 and the exit is not easy . This is stretching too far. Since lock-downs have killed livelihood, food demands from families are on rise like anything.
The covid-19 virus is spreading throughout the city of Mumbai and has especially impacted those families that are served by ASHA for Education. They’re into months of lock-down and many are unable to earn a livlihood during this time. Even with funds, simply getting out to get groceries can be a problem. This makes the Grocery Ditribution Drive critical for the wellbeing of the children and families.
