We want to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.
Without access to nutritious food, vulnerable population have lowered immunity levels, which makes them susceptible to sickness. Thus, access to nutritious food is a form of preventive medicine in itself.
We have successfully implemented a combination of technology and on-ground volunteers for Mumbai that allows us to precisely care for marginalized groups.
We know that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. We also realize that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Mumbai Help.
OUR CURRENT WORK
MUMBAI HELP is achieving more with our initiatives than ever before. We work on many exciting projects to help improve the lives of others, and are very proud of the progress we continue to make. Learn more about what we do, who we help, and how we work every day to promote positive change.
Helping The Community
In the midst of the on-going pandemic, social distancing is a luxury that India's informal workforce of 450 million cannot afford. With the government lockdown order and inadequate state provisions for food distribution, several families are sleeping hungry - in their homes, stranded at railway stations or state borders. To support our community in Mumbai during these difficult times, we have been distributing food packets and ration kids to those in need.
With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. Learn more about our work by getting in touch with our team today.
DONATE UMBRELLAS DRIVE
Reinforcing our Commitment
Monsoon is not a happy season for everyone. Just walk up to the nearest junction to know why: You'll see kids shivering in cold, people trying to cover themselves up in plastic or whatever comes their way.
Living in Mumbai means dealing with the heavy rains and not having an umbrella will only make things worse for you. Even if your home and workplace is at a walking distance, these rains have the capability to drench you from head to toe and you’ll probably sneeze in your office the next day.
We realized that how an umbrella was a luxury to the many underprivileged pavement-dwelling families and especially their children. We at MUMBAI HELP intend to donate more than 500 umbrellas for more than 200 plus families we are already connected with hunger project.
DONATE WOMEN CARE BOX
Did you know that only 36% of India’s 336 million menstruating women have access to sanitary napkins?
With COVID-19 entering our lives uninvited, the number of women with access to sanitary pads has gone down drastically. For underprivileged women, feeding themselves has become a question mark because of job losses. During times like this, their menstrual health is relegated to the background. Poor menstrual hygiene can result in fungal and bacterial infections across the reproductive and urinary tract exposing them to risk of Hepatitis B and Cervical Cancer.
To tackle the lack of access, especially during COVID-19, MUMBAI HELP is planning to donate more than 500 sanitary pads for more than 250 houses based out of slums in Sion, Wadala, Matunga area. We would try and make this as “WOMEN CARE BOX” which would include Sanitary pads, Soap, Sanitizer, Mask and chocolate.
FEED OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS
As stray animals go without food and water, you could help make a difference !!
The coronavirus lockdown has not only forced the entire world indoors, but has put India’s four legged strays in extreme distress. Unavailability of food and water in the scorching summer is impacting stray animals all over the country.
With restaurants and eateries downing shutters and food trucks parked at homes, strays have been struggling to find food to kill their hunger. They have nothing to eat, not even leftovers that they always relied on.
Dogs who do not have dedicated feeders suffer because even production of garbage from eateries has stopped and meat shops which were their favorite place to hover around have shut. Weight loss is not the only problem, scarcity of food could trigger competitiveness leading to increasing aggression among strays. There are high chances of these animals could change their normal behavior.
There are about 1.713 crore stray dogs in India, according to the Livestock Census of 2012. These numbers would have multiplied by now.
Realizing the impact, animal rights activists and NGOs are feeding stray dogs and cats wherever possible. MUMBAI HELP intends to collaborate with feeders and provide them sustainable solutions for food and financial assistance to prepare home cooked meals. We currently intend to feed 100 animals which we would gradually increase it to 250 per day in few weeks.
