Yuva Unstoppable, an India based non-profit organization founded by Amitabh Shah, recently distributed family essential kits to daily wagers, supporting about 15000needful people across the country. In addition to this, the NGO also distributed hygiene kits for police personnel and their family members under its ‘Unstoppable Police Project’, benefitting close to a total of 60000 people countrywide.
Here’s what Amitabh Shah, the Founder & Chief Inspiration Officer of Yuva Unstoppable, had to share about the organization’s COVID-19 relief initiatives – “the pandemic has not only created a global health and safety risk but has also created another health concern which is the lack of basic nutrition to last an individual during a single day. During this time it is essential not only provide food and safety to those in need but equally important to reach out and support those who are the frontline warriors in today’s time. Through our collective foot & safety kits distribution, we have been able to give support to more than 70,000 people and plan to reach many more.”
The family essential kits distributed by Yuva Unstoppable consist of basic groceries and hygiene essentials like cereals, pulses, oil, essential spices, tea, sugar, soap or hand wash, and hand sanitizer for the family of daily wage labourers that lasts them at least a month. The hygiene kits being distributed under the NGO’s‘Unstoppable Police Project’ consist of basic hygiene equipment like masks, hand sanitizers, soaps or hand wash, and a ‘thank you’ note acknowledging the efforts and spirit of the police personnel and their family members as they continue to fight the battle on the frontlines to protect the general masses. 100% of the donations received from this campaign go straight towards benefitting the beneficiaries.
The COVID-19 induced lockdown brought the majority of the economic activities in India to a halt. As a result, thousands of daily wagers are facing deprivation and penury in the underdeveloped and rural regions of the country, hence, making them even more susceptible to contracting the virus. On the other hand, thousands of police personnel are working tirelessly, with limited food or sleep, to ensure that the nationwide lockdown is followed strictly and the common public is safe. This not only exposes them to the risk of being infected by the Virus but also their family members, especially children and the elderly when they go home. Many policemen and women have already been affected by the Virus in India.
Reportedly, YuvaUnstoppable’s interventions have brought about great relief to the daily wage labourers, police personnel and their family members in different parts of the country in their fight against the pandemic. During the distribution of these kits, all necessary precautions are being taken to ensure that appropriate norms of social distancing and personal protection are followed by the volunteers as well as the beneficiaries at the grassroots.
