Reaching out to Bengaluru's transgenders

Jun 13, 2021, 7:09 PM IST

Even as the Coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc across the country, some individuals in society have gone to great lengths to ensure that those infected with the virus and the poorest of the poor are not deprived of essential commodities.

Two organisations -- Good Quest Foundation and Hope Project Vision -- have been distributing thousands of food packages free of cost to the patients and their families. Their volunteers have been reaching out to Covid patients as part of their 'Food To Your Doorstep'.

Now, extending their initiative, the NGO has started distributing dry ration kits to transgenders. Each kit contains 5 kg rice, 5 kg wheat flour, a litre of cooking oil, one packet each of lentils, sugar and salt, two soaps and sanitiser tubes.

Volunteers of the NGO delivered the dry ration kits to the transgenders' residences.

NOTE: Asianet News humbly requests everyone to wear masks, sanitize, maintain social distancing and get vaccinated as soon as eligible. Together we can and will break the chain #ANCares #IndiaFightsCorona
