Posted By: SimbmbYs Comments Off on Project Khushi, Spreading Happiness During the Pandemic

Soroptimist Welfare Association (SIBC), in association with MES’s Pillai College of Education and Research, Chembur organised a ‘Donate a Meal Drive’ to provide food to orphanages and shelter homes who were affected by the second wave of Covid. The collection was open for ten days starting on 30th April, 2021. SIBC also donated an oxygen concentrator enabling these organisations to help the needy. Through this project, SIBC was able to tackle hunger and contributed to the health of people.

Over a period of 10 days starting from April 31st, 2021, donations were collected from people via an online money app called as gpay. Anyone could donate any amount, the least being Rs. 50/-. At the end of 10 days, a sum of Rs 1,06,000/- was collected and was given for the following purposes:

  1. Rs. 25,000/- to the Panvel gurudwarda for food kits to be distributed to marginalised people
  2. Rs. 22,000/- to Don Bosco Nerul for a week supply of food in their Community Fridge Project
