News In Put by Shikha Singh : 

Brief introduction of Ruzan Khambatta:

Ahmedabad-based Ruzan Khambatta, a well-known social entrepreneur and an active agent for women’s safety and empowerment, has always been at the forefront of other social causes as well.

Mumbai: While interacting with Hello Mumbai News she said “Just a day following the 21-day lockdown announcement, we happened to learn on how the state government-run Rupee 10 meal scheme for labourers was discontinued, leaving those benefiting from it with no other option. When I got the news that the scheme has been discontinued, I called up some politicians of
the ruling party and told them about it and to find some solution.”
“Actually, , they wanted to discourage people from assembling in groups to avoid the spread of COVID-19. Infact, they should have thought of some alternative. So, I decided to take things in my own hands.”

Beneficiaries-
Migrants, Poor people, Daily-wages workers, and other people who are from other regions and do not have any local support in Ahmedabad.

We distributed around 1,40,020 Food packets to the needy across Ahmedabad city with the help of Ahmedabad Police, from 24th March 2020 to 16th April 2020.

Similarly, distributed 150 Ration Kits to the needy people across Ahmedabad City in coordination with the Ahmedabad District Panchayat.

Later took tobdistributio Distribution of about 5,000 Litre Hand Sanitizers and more than 4,50,000 instant fruit drink packets to the Frontline Workers and Police
and distributed 100 Kgs of Rice and 1000 packets of Biscuits for stray animals

She expressed her gratitude Donors, Ahmedabad Police & Volunteers for supporting Wajra O’ Force Empowerment Foundation.

It’s because of them we could get an opportunity to undertake the job.
We divided our team and volunteers into three different departments to work systematically and efficiently.

The functionaries of these departments are as follows:

1. One team works on the Fundraising activities and co-ordinates the same to make a large number of food pockets and meet the essential needs of food packets.

In the Second team worked as a helpdesk to the needy people in terms of providing assistance and guidance to their necessities. This team was also located in the areas and regions where the people need basic essentialls klike food, water, sanitizing supplements, shelter, etc.
3. Third team supervises and oordinates with the other two teams and instigates accordingly.

This the team also coordinated with the local district administration (Zilla Panchayat – Ahmedabad) and amerged .
Ahmedabad City Police and provide the report to the concerns regarding the supplements of essential goods in the identified location.
• We also distributed the ration kits to the local urban poor families and the daily wage workers who reside in Ahmedabad. In this initiative, we had again collaborated with the District Development Officer Ahmedabad and his team (Zilla Panchayat – Ahmedabad). The ration kits contain raw materials like rice, oil, wheat, vegetables, salt, sugar, turmeric, cumin, etc. The reasons why we associated with the Zilla Panchayat, Ahmedabad are – To maintain the Law and
Order, to provide the ration kits to the needy people even at the remote or distinct areas of Ahmedabad city as well as rural, and through this, we can also stop the duplication of ration kits
to the same people rather we can provide it to the large number of people who are actually in need.

Lastly, we are all al well that in this pandemic the real heroes like – Health Personnel, Police Personnel, Cleaners, Municipal workers, Frontline workers, and Volunteers, etc. who are serving the society and performing their duty 24X7 at the highest risks, staying away from their home and family in such a critical situation, it becomes our moral duty and responsibility to even t

We have also distributed 5,000 bottles of Sanitizers to Police and Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation. We also initiated to distribute over 50,000 pouches of
instant energy powder drink which contains vitamins and sugar. Each pouch can make 9 glasses of soft drink. This is the least we could do for all our heroes, who can eventually be termed as the CORONA WARRIORS.
Food for Stray Animals:
It’s not only that the people are catastrophe due to this pandemic of Covid-19, but there are several stray animals too who are suffering from lack of food and water during this critical situation.

Eventually, there was eventually no hope of help to reach such animals.
However, the team of Animal Lovers Club

took to their feet to provide every help to these animals, especially the stray dogs.

The team members located the stray dog’s pan and provided them with biscuits, rice, etc.
