Unfortunately, not all of us are lucky to have food, water and the most essential things in life at times. You and I are humans and we need the basic needs that include shelter, food, clothing and basic fundamental human rights. The vulnerable people too, are humans. If you cannot survive without food, what makes you think that homeless/poor people can? People living on the streets can get sick easily and die due to lack of food because their immune system is already weakened and compromised.

Project “Beyond Braille” was initiated by the Rotaract Club of IIT to ensure a change in the lives of the differently abled children in Sri Lanka.

We asked them to pack an extra lunch packet and we successfully collected around 45 packets and started going around Wellawatte looking for unlucky children and adults. After distributing all the lunch packets that were collected we went back to IIT premises without hearts filled with content.

In the fight to stamp out hunger, food banks play a key role by securing billions of pounds of food each year and distributing it to millions of people in need. You can help fight hunger in your local community by holding a food drive in your neighborhood, office, place of worship or school. Helping your local food bank stock up can also help your community be better prepared for emergencies, as demand on food banks often grows during a disaster or crisis. And hunger knows no borders, with serious challenges in high- and low-income nations alike.
