On one hand we are trying to instill in them the value of being self sufficient, on the other hand we realize how difficult it is for them when there is no source of earning at home. In most homes, both parents work and sustain their household and we try and take on the responsibility of education. The fathers mostly employed as masons, carpenters, painters, cleaners suddenly saw their daily income stop. When we first started the distribution on April 12, there were very few of our children who said they needed help. Others hoped that the lockdown will open soon and things will be better. Some more children came forward on April 18, our second distribution. This time they also brought forward the plight of their neighbors and hoped that we could help them too. Sunshine Society is an NGO where people come together to make a difference in the place they live. We asked for a little help and we were overwhelmed by the response. We also realized that there were still many who needed the ration and then we got the support from SBI life… 500 ration sets with the following:
1.Atta 5 Kg
2. Rice 4 Kg
3. Oil 1 kg
4. Dal - 1/2 kg - arhar
5. Dal - 1/2 kg - chana
6. Masale - 3 pkts
7. Salt - 1 kg
8. Soap - 1 no
SBI life is also sponsoring the education of eight Sunshine children and they realised the hardship that all our children may be facing. They approached us to facilitate the distribution to our children and also volunteered to distribute.
Regional Manager Debabrata Panini and Regional Manager Sunil Pandey helped distribute the ration sets to the children.
Extending help to 500 families is a big difference… Our children and their neighbours have extended their thank you’s and we share this with you all…
Thank you Vinodji, SHO Dharmendraji, Sub Inspecter Deepakji, Sub Inspector Sohanveerji, Pankajji and Raghav. Thank you to all the volunteers(our children) who helped us prepare the list and distribute maintaining the social distancing.
