Hamdard National Foundation extends its ration distribution drive reaching out to more than 18,000 families across the National Capital Region
New Delhi: Hamdard National Foundation- HNF- (India) has undertaken initiatives aimed to feed the underprivileged section of the society that has been the most affected in the current circumstances. HNF under its initiative of ‘Ration Distribution Drive’ undertook food relief measures for migrant workers and daily wage labourers across the National Capital Region, as their livelihoods came to a halt and they ran out of food.
Hamdard National Foundation (India), a Society formed in 1964, in New Delhi, extended its food distribution drive through identified NGOs and individuals who have been working day and night on the ground trying to ensure that no one dies of hunger in the national capital. In the Phase-II of the ration distribution drive we have given more than 7000 kilograms of dry ration to Moemin Foundation, around 5305 kilograms ration to Rehab India Foundation and a similar quantity to Society for Social Welfare and Development for direct distribution to the poor and needy individuals, simultaneously 14,100 kilograms ration to office of Mr. Imran Hussain, Honourable Minister of Food and Civil Supplies, Govt. of NCT of Delhi. The organization donated more than 20 Food Ration kits to the DM (South East) Delhi, for direct distribution to the families from where they were receiving distress calls, in addition to the 300 kits already provided in Phase – I of the activity.
Hamdard stays true to its passion & commitment of healthcare with the welfare of the society. An exemplary and unique business model, Hamdard ploughs back a significant chunk of its profits into charity. With this Dry Ration Distribution drive, Hamdard National Foundation (India) wants to convey that in this tough time, we will all come through this together.
Mr. Hammad Ahmed, President, Hamdard National Foundation (India) said, “At Hamdard National Foundation, we have decided to extend our food distribution activity for the 2nd Phase. With the culmination of both phases of food distribution, HNF has now provided food to 18,800 people for a period of 20 days”.
