Anand Daan

30.3% households headed by senior citizens in rural areas are poor. Whereas in urban areas, 20% of such households are poor. Dignity Foundation identifies those who are genuinely needy in the slum communities across six cities and their rural outskirts and provides monthly ration kits to them.

Anand Daan for Senior Citizens

After a needs assessment and due diligence, eligible senior citizens receive monthly basic provisions such as food grains, oil, sanitation and essential items. Our team visits pre-identified locations and distributes these kits within the communities where the beneficiaries live.

Our Goal is to achieve Food Security for the needy elderly who have no reliable source of income or support. We feel that good health through nutritious food is the beginning of a dignified and healthy life. Hence, our goal is to maximise our efforts to benefit at least 25,000 needy senior citizens this year with monthly dry ration supply, which is sufficient for a family of 2-3 members for one month.

Dignity Foundation supports PM Modi’s vision for a TB Mukt Bharat (TB Free India)

In 2023, Dignity Foundation made a humble beginning by supporting the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai’s E-Ward office with customised ration kits for those elderly who were suffering or recovering from Tuberculosis. We distributed 200 such kits and joined the PM’s mission of making India TB-free. We were also conferred the title of Ni-Kshay Mitra.

This year, we are joining hands with Pradhan Mantri’s mission with an ambitious goal of supporting 25,000 TB-ration kits across India. These special kits contain the dry ration items in quantities specified by the TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyan. It also contains a special Protein Powder which aids in improved immunity and faster recovery from TB.

You too can become a part of this mission by supporting the cost of these ration kits and donating them to TB-affected individuals through Dignity Foundation.
