Storyline


As the COVID-19 crisis has caused serious unemployment and salary cuts across India, a group of volunteers from Mumbai are trying their best to offer free meals to poor people.

Richa Baadkar, the founder of the charity group, said they hope to offer as much support as they can and help low-income residents survive the pandemic.

In fact, Baadkar and her friends started the food distribution last year in March, the time when COVID-19 first hit the country, and the national lockdown left many casual laborers, who used to live on daily wages, unemployed.

The volunteers began with their charity meal distribution, cooking meals themselves and then delivering them to those facing food shortages.

"They come to deliver food to us every day. I clean the bathrooms here to earn a monthly salary of around 300 to 450 Indian rupees (about 4.11 to 6.17 U.S. dollars). But I have to give most of the salary to my family who live on it to survive," said Kumar.

A total of 15 million people across India lost their jobs in May. The unemployment rate has peaked at 11.9 percent, the largest since Last July.

Baadkar said they found the food shortage has become worse.

"They are extremely happy because in some places the pandemic has affected people so badly. It is like us as the only source of meal for them. And when we want to reach out for them it gives us immense pleasure," she said.

"I do cleaning in local communities. Each day they will deliver rice to us at noon, and more food as well as mineral water in the evening for supper," said Parvati as she expressed gratitude to Baadkar and her friends.

The volunteers wake up at 06:00 each morning and cannot go to bed before 01:00.

Baadkar said since she is always staying outside with people, she lives alone in order to ensure the health and safety of her family.

Everyone from the support group is just the same with Baadkar - all they think about is to offer as much care to those who have hit hard times.

"They are so happy each time when they see us coming. They said there is no food so we deliver two meals, lunch and supper, to them each day. Every time we arrive at the place, they are already there waiting for us," said Prakash

On Thursday, India reported a record high of 6,148 COVID-19 deaths during the past 24 hours, taking the total death toll in the country to 359,676, said the federal health ministry.

Meanwhile, 94,052 new cases were recorded in the period, the third consecutive day when less than 100,000 cases were reported in a single day. The total caseload stands at 29,183,121.
