Pandemic hero asks for kind donations for families in India

Hetvi Parekh is a local Nottingham hero who has organised many charitable events, donations and food collections for people and families who have struggled during the pandemic. She also leads the Regional Branch for National Charity ‘Sewa Day’ in Nottingham and she’s recently received the Points of Light Award from Boris Johnson for her incredible work.

Hetvi knows no bounds in finding ways to help people who need it, and now she’s asking for help to raise funds for families in India. Here’s what she said

“Dear friends, my hometown is Mumbai and my family and friends still live there.

“I get updates every day about the horrific battle that people in Mumbai have to face. There is a lack of hospital beds, oxygen cylinders and medications. The people who are most impacted are the ones who live on daily wages and absolute poverty.

“I have teamed up with Life Save Foundation ( who are currently working on the frontline amongst some dangerous conditions to ensure that food supplies reach the poor people. They deliver dry ration kits to daily wages families who are currently jobless in different parts of slums in Dharavi, Matunga, Jogeshwari, Lower Parel, Prabhadevi, Worli & Kurla Tardeo and Kanda Wadi.

“They are now running short of funds to meet the needs of all, and I would like to request you to come forward and support them. They will be able to provide good accountability of where the money is spent and given. As my mum still lives in Mumbai, she can ensure that the funds are spent in the right manner.”

You can feed as many families as you would like, any donation amount will be appreciated. The breakdown of helping to feed families is shown below:

Hetvi continued, “I will be grateful for your support to feed a minimum of 100 families. Please help me raise funds for a worthy cause.”
