COVID-19 relief & awareness

Dayabhavan volunteers started to distribute food kits to homeless, unemployed migrant workers, and the mentally challenged mostly found in the streets and makeshift camps of Kunigal Taluk. This was easily the most vulnerable category of people severely affected by the lockdown, as a result of closing trade and businesses and, consequently, was deprived of means of sustenance. The organization began serving parcels of food that were packed hygienically at its campus kitchen to those in the streets and camps at a rate of 150 parcels per day. There was a great deal of encouragement and support from many friends and well-wishers who helped us with cash and kind. It has been possible to serve about 18,000 food packets during the lockdown period.

Our Inspiration

If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain. Emily Dickinson'
