We have realized that we need more money. We are sending this email out to our friends to share out plan
“We have raised around 1.5 lacs and the number is growing but we are still far away from what is needed to provide some immediate food supplies in the villages of Uttarakhand. We are working with the District Administration under the guidance of Mr Navnit Pande to identify remote villages in the Kedar Valley which have been badly affected in the floods. We require around 1200 food parcels to be sent there. Each food parcel will include
Rice – 15 kg
Black gram – 5 kg
Daliya – 5 Kg
Biscuit + Rusk + Sugar + Salt + Masala pack + Tea powder + Milk Powder – 5 Kgs
All this will be then packed in water proof cement bags and then transported to Rudraprayag. From Rudraprayag the district administration will help us in the logistics. Our core team volunteers will also be traveling with the food supplies.
Each of the food parcels along with transportation will cost Rs 3000 a piece. In the first phase we are trying to send 300 parcels. Please help us by sponsoring as many food parcels as you can. Every bit will help the situation.
