Covid-19 Relief (8000 Ration Kits Distributed)
In the wake of the sudden onset and long-lasting repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic, Dignity Foundation found the need to urgently cater to indigent senior citizens, many of whom lost their source of livelihood and found it hard to afford even two meals a day. Monthly ration and Covid-19 essentials kits were mobilised and distributed to 8000 elderly across six cities of India.
