ZIRAKPUR,04.04.20-Under its initiative #KaroNa, NGO Tammana carried out yet another distribution drive in the Mohali Pind, Phase 1, Mohali with due assistance from the Municipal Corporation, also with volunteers from the village itself helping the team from the NGO & the administration, to facilitate the distribution smoothly and efficiently. With the guidance and support of the local administration and Police, a list of households which actually required the food supplies urgently & were completely out of it was prepared so that the supplies were not doubled to any household but perhaps reach out on the need basis purely.

The verifications during the household also found out with people stocking up the food. Tammana urges all those distributing to implement such verifications beforehand, and aims to reach out to those who haven't been visited yet or less.

Based on the list prepared, 240 families were distributed gunny bags; each consisting of wheat flour, rice, lentils, oil, salt, chili powder, turmeric powder, vegetables & soap, were distributed amongst the needy. To maintain and promote social distancing, only a few were allowed to step out from their homes to collect the Ration who stood at least a meter apart. This eased the distribution process, taking all the necessary precautionary measures, keeping it safe for all.

Founder President, Isha Kakaria quoted that of course there are challenges faced & there is a risk involved however; our NGO is taking complete care in terms of safety, for all distribution drives. It remains our priority to wear the masks & gloves ourselves for all those distributing the raw material.
Member Tejinder Singh shared that the contributions from within the team & from the public have been overwhelming, helping conduct this distribution drive successfully.
Jaskaran Singh, General Secretary shared that NGO Tammana is determined to carry out further food distribution drives in the Tricity with all due permissions that are taken. Tammana urges all to come forward to donate in cash or kind or simply help spread the word. Those willing may please call at 9646072207
