Hunger is not a new problem in India but this year, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, this problem had escalated to a major crisis. Thousands of people were struggling to find even one meal a day. How could the pandemic be controlled when people didn’t have the physical nourishment to withstand infections?
People from poorer backgrounds have had to face the worse parts of the pandemic this year: job losses, loss of savings and livelihoods, anxieties about the future, and increased risk of infection. In the midst of all this, they were also facing a large threat- hunger
Thousands of people had been left hungry during the pandemic- men, women, and children of all ages. People were starving on the streets, in hospital waiting rooms, in railway stations and bus stops across the country. Seeing the plight of these destitute people and inspired to help them survive, Dr. Sujat ramped up HFF’s operations to meet a surge in demand as migrant workers and many poor families were left stranded and struggling to put food on the table. While the battle has been hard, Humanity First has never given up on their mission to feed those in need, regardless of caste or creed.
