Ambar Bhattacharya, abptakmaa, Kolkata, 8th Apr 2020 : While the Corona Virus pandemic keeps the entire country in lockdown, situations are getting worse at places that have less connectivity and access to cities.With no regular supply of food and grocery at numerous villages across Bengal because of poor connectivity and zero vehicle movement due to the lockdown, hunger seems like a greater concern than COVID 19 right now.
It has come to our notice that one such village in Purulia, Tulsibari, needs immediate relief. Home to hundreds of daily wagers and farmers, Tulsibari needed immediate attention to ensure that the villagers don’t suffer from hunger and malnutrition in these days of the mandated lockdown.
On 5th April Suchandra Vaaniya, CEO, Just Studio took an initiative to ensure that the families at Tulsibari Gram Panchayet gets atleast supplied with basic rations for survival. However, it’s easier said than done. While we are still trying to accumulate more funds for this initiative, it is needless to say that we don’t have enough.
We are therefore requesting all our friends in Media and Entertainment to come forward and help us out in this initiative in whatever way they can. Donations, ration contribution or even simply by spreading the word in your own media outlets. Come join us in this little endeavour of making sure that atleast some of the citizens of this country don’t go to sleep unfed as we battle this pandemic.
