Go Dharmic aims to feed at least a million Indian impacted by business and supply disruptions caused by Covid-19 pandemic. Go Dharmic, a volunteer organisation started in the UK, has already fed thousands of elderly, homeless, orphans and needy in the UK and is now feeding the poorest across India.
Go Dharmic started the campaign in the UK where the volunteers, including the founder Hemal Randerwala fed the elderly, underprivileged and NHS Hospitals. The organisation also extended support to Indian students in the UK. After UK, Go Dharmic started the movement in India in locations such as Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur, Surat, Mohali, Dehradun and West Godavari.
Celebrities are coming forward to lend support to activities undertaken by Go Dharmic. The movement now has support from celebrities such as comedian Kapil Sharma, Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal, singer Krishna Das and sports stars Harbhajan Singh, Shreyas Iyer, Monty Panesar, Devon Malcom.
In a video message, Kapil Sharma said: “In India, they [Go Dharmic] are working in Mumbai, Punjab and other places. They are helping the destitute, orphans, homeless and those who are struggling to eat. You can also be a part of the good work Go Dharmic is doing.”
Go Dharmic delivers dry ration kits containing rice, lentils, spices, cooking oil and other essential food items that can serve a small family for few days. The activity is funded through donations and executed by volunteers who follow the best practice of hygiene and sanitation for packing and delivering the ration packets to the needy, ensuring no spread of coronavirus.
Go Dharmic Founder Hemal Randerwala said: “It is heartwarming to see so many people from different walks of life coming together to help the needy. Our highest dharma should be compassion and love for all. The call to ‘Go Dharmic’ is a request for you to come forward and work to relieve suffering for all in society.”
Arjun Rampal in a YouTube video asked more people to come forward. He appealed to everyone to help Go Dharmic achieve the goal of feeding one million people in India.
