NGOs providing groceries and essentials for the elderly

Mar 29, 2020 12:15 IST

The WHO has shared that the elderly and those with pre-existing medical conditions are most vulnerable to the Covid-19 virus. While India stays at home amid a 21-day lockdown, NGOs are lending a helping hand by providing them with groceries and other essentials. Action For Pune Development is helping senior citizens who need groceries and medicines. Delhi-based Samvedna Senior Care is offering mental health support if senior citizens experience anxiety issues due to the lockdown. Youngistaan Foundation is reaching out to the people above the age of 60 in Hyderabad. 38-year-old Mahita Nagaraj has started Caremonger India in Bengaluru. She drops off daily necessities at the homes of the elderly, or those who have special needs and cannot venture out.
