“Poor people venture outside if they don’t get food. The ideal way to keep them inside their houses is by supplying groceries and food at their doorstep.”

After getting the money, the brothers with the help of their social circles bought a lot of groceries, made ration bags and started handing them out from under a tent. They also have volunteers who have been given a pass by the police to be able to deliver food around. Their main aim is to ensure that every family has enough to be able to feed themselves thrice a day. So far, they have delivered free groceries to over 2,800 families. Isolation is key in the fight against COVID-19. They said that if people do not have food, they’ll be forced to venture out, putting them at the risk of being infected. Now isn’t that inspiring!
