Mumbai-based Neeti Goel Leads from Front to Curb Mumbai’s Hunger Crisis
SHARES

After the announcement of a partial lockdown in Mumbai declared by the Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, several sections of the society witnessed a crisis similar to the one last year, where a lockdown meant economic shutdown of several businesses, which would further lead to a loss of livelihood.

Neeti Goel, known for her philanthropic work as part of Lockdown 1.0, had earlier co-founded khaana chahiye, an UN-recognized NGO. Goel distributed 45 lakhs meals to the needy, worked with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on the shramik campaign where 287 trains were catered with food and water, distributed 20,000 plus ration kits to several households in Maharashtra and co-founded ghar bhejo abhiyan with Sonu Sood where five lakhs plus migrants were sent home with adequate food and water.

Moreover, Mumbai-based Neeti, being a restauranteur has been using her outlet to the best in order to cater meals, pack ration kits etc. When restauranteurs were firing their staff in the pandemic, she ensured all her staff were well sustained as this drive required a lot of manpower.

Meanwhile, this time around Neeti along with a group of volunteers have made a hunger map wherein 65,000 needy and homeless people have been mapped out who need to be provided with daily meals and ration kits. Anyone looking to donate can either write on care@lbtrust.in or give a call at 8779914539 wherein necessary information can be shared for any Indian looking to make a small contribution to wipe out the hunger crisis in the city.
