coronavirus relief program

In the crisis caused by the COVID disaster, the virus seems to have brought forth the goodness in every human being. Many individuals have come forward to do their bit to help people who are affected during the crisis. All across the nation, you can see people providing meals to the lower-income sections from their residences, donating money towards distributing relief kits for the affected people, helping the front-line workers with PPE kits, etc.

Apart from individuals coming forward to help the marginalised sections, many NGO’s in India have extended their services to provide them with relief during the COVID-19 crisis. The Akshaya Patra Foundation began its COVID-19 Relief Services from 25th March 2020. The Foundation has served a cumulative of over 6-crore meals to people belonging to backward sections of the society. It has consistently worked towards serving cooked meals & distributing grocery kits for the last 80 days and will continue to do so throughout the lockdown period.

Many eminent personalities have taken to social media for appreciating Akshaya Patra’s COVID-19 Relief efforts. Here is what each one has to say.
