Yeh Mera India (YMI), a non-profit, social change maker organisation, is engaged in humanitarian and environmental work across Kolkata. During this time of lockdown, these brave hearts have taken it upon themselves to distribute ration and food amenities among the destitute and underprivileged.
Yeh Mera India has launched a campaign called 'Feed one Feed All' to reach out to a vast number of destitute individuals. The NGO aims to feed more than 2,500 people per day during lockdown, for which they have already set up community kitchens in various part of the city where food is being cooked keeping in mind the safety parameters.
They are distributing rice, pulses, flour, vegetables and oil for cooking in three different slums areas, namely Ballygunge, Salt Lake and Kankurgachi. They are also giving out ready-to-eat food like puffed rice, biscuits, bread, sattu etc. to people who can't cook.
YMI also works toward women upliftment and emancipation. The women from the slum community are into weaving kantha works and make products such as scarves, potlis and table mats, among other things.
