FOOD RELIEF PROGRAM 2021: First Distribution

 18th of June 2021, Khammam. Last week stated the food parcel distributions, part of our food emergency program in response to the difficult health situation India is facing.

On Thursday 10th June our staff, together with local staff of SEMI Onlus, carried out a door-to-door delivery in the village of Sarapaka. The families selected were those most in difficulty, with fewer resources and infected by coronavirus.

Friday 11th of June the distribution was made in Nellipaka, a village located between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, in the tribal area. Here COVID-19 has hit hard and in some communities, as Lakshmipuram, all inhabitants have tested positive.

On Monday 14th of June 14 the staff moved to another tribal area, also heavily affected: Eddula Bayyaram. Also in this case the aid was welcomed with great joy by the families who, albeit for a short period, can take a breath. 

Last, yesterday, June 17, the distribution moved to Khammam district, in the village of Madhira, currently "red zone" due to the high number of registered cases.

In each village 50 families received a food package containing 5kg of rice, 1kg of lentils. 1kg of oil and two masks (one surgical and one cloth).
