With contributions pouring in to help migrants in the crisis during Covid-19 shutdown, several local businessmen and NGOs have collaborated to provide food and shelter to the needy.

The Madad Charitable Foundation and Khanna Paper Mills, too, have initiated a campaign to provide aid to the needy. Contributing to District Red Cross Society, the Madad Charitable Foundation has been providing 1,500 packed meals to Police Lines staff daily and food kits to daily wagers.

“We have set up teams of volunteers for each campaign to deliver food kits and packed meals. Also, we are identifying and helping senior citizens in need with food, medicines and healthcare. We aim to provide over 50,000 cooked meals to police personnel on ground,” said Suneet Kocchar, director, Khanna Papers and managing trustee, Madad Charitable Foundation. — TNS
