Tata Mumbai Marathon 2022

The impact of COVID-19 on families from moderate backgrounds is quite clear, but it’s likely to be just the beginning. Since the timing of the actual Marathon is quite uncertain, UHRC (Urban Health Resource Centre) has started a fundraising campaign on the platform of United Way Mumbai, an NGO that convenes the NGO component of the Mumbai Marathon. During the Covid lockdown, we learned that families who had stored wheat were able to withstand the crisis of losing wages and livelihood. Therefore UHRC has decided to provide about 25 kg wheat and 5 kg arhar dal to each needy family (in consultation with women's groups) to stimulate six months to one-year wheat and dal storage. We are also trying to encourage a larger number of families to grow vegetables. During 2020-21, we are hoping that more than 1000 families will grow vegetables. Each family shares these vegetables with approximately 3 more families. This will help provide food to around 4000 families and not to mention its positive impact on carbon emission. We are all in this together!

About Me
Originally from Meerut, India, I am currently based outside India. During my Feb. 2017 visit, I saw a nutrition session in bastis. An article on this is published at http://bit.ly/2mgc98n. I believe knowledge is empowerment. These keen minds are eager to learn & improve their lives. I have witnessed tremendous drive in their eyes. They deserve respect & the right to equal opportunities like everyone else in life. Our support to them is to help them gain rights & live with dignity. I wish to visit Indore again to share basic skills as per their interest. An article on my experience with basti women &children is available at http://bit.ly/2zOqdvH I urge all to contribute to this exceptionally worthy cause.
