During Covid 19 pandemic, to support needy with basic essentials and necessities, Retain Smilez commenced a project “Community Kitchen” on Mar 28th 2020, since the day one of the lock down. Initially we started to serve 500 food packets with water bottles every day. Later with in few days we came across many needy people and so we extended serving more than 2000 food packets per day, throughout 150 days of lock down. We feel blessed and glad that, we have fed more than 2.5 Lakhs underprivileged people, sanitary workers & daily wagers.
Since August 2020, we have provided food packets with water bottles, biscuits, fruits & energy drinks to the needy on pavements and those who are at major risk. Also dogs, cows and crows were fed out of the food drive.
Being preventive has become a big necessity for human being during Covid 19 pandemic. Retain Smilez provided more than 30,000 face masks to green warriors, street vendors, auto drivers, petrol bunk staffs, general public and underprivileged. Fruit juice & multi vitamin medicines were also provided to boost their immunity levels.
While serving food packets during lock down period, we came across many heart burdening cases which made us to expand “Namba Unavu – Community Kitchen” concept, to work & to eradicate hunger to the maximum extent. It’s the major reason for this initiative.
