Bag and Bucket Service Helps Binodpur

Binodpur Village, India

 

Greetings from Binodpur Village! We are grateful that GHNI continues to bring help and hope to the hidden and hurting in our village and throughout the world.

 

On behalf of Binodpur, I would like to give thanks for the special funding from GHNI. It was so helpful!  Since our government declared a lockdown due to COVID-19, many people lost their jobs in the city and came back to the village where they don't have work. In this situation, the government is giving some aid, but it is not sufficient for living, especially for those who have no agricultural land. 

 

As a Transformational Community Development (TCD) worker, I visited several homes to talk to villagers. Finally, I called a meeting with the village club and two of our doctors.  We made a list of 30 families, some of whom were widows and beggars. We were able to give them 5kg rice, 1 kg potatoes, 1kg onions, 1kg mustard oil,  and a few other helpful items.

 

Before these recent conditions, this area was shown to be in the orange zone, but now it has been changed to the red zone. With this designation, there are much stricter guidelines. Yet, I continue with the "Bag and Bucket " service, meaning I distribute food where it’s needed to save lives. 

 

Thank you,

 

Bharat
