COVID-19 Emergency Distribution to Vulnerable Households in the Madurai Area in collaboration with Honeywell and Seeds.
COVID-19 has unprecedented effects on India. Currently, India is one of the countries with the highest incidence of cases, and Tamil Nadu is one of the worst affected states in the country. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the economic consequences have become very clear, and local communities have been struggling to get by. That is why Blossom Trust has carried, in collaboration with SEEDS and Honeywell, an emergency distribution to ensure food security for the local communities in need.
The aim of this project was to distribute more than 2000 emergency rations, consisting of Rice, Flour, Dahl, Spices and tea, to vulnerable households living in the Madurai urban area. The beneficiaries consisted of HIV and TB patients, Chronic disease patients, Transgenders, women-led households, daily wagers, and people living with disabilities. The distribution started in September 2020 and continued towards November, distributing 2660 rations across 15 designated collection points, or "Hunger Spots", in Madurai.
We would like to thank SEEDS and Honeywell for their support and collaboration to make such a meaningful impact.
