MEALS TO DOCTORS WAS ALMOST SYNONYMOUS WITH PROJECT MUMBAI–WE PROVIDED ALMOST 1500 MEALS TO DOCTORS, EVERY DAY, ACROSS MOST MAINLINE HOSPITALS–THE FIGURE CROSSING ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND AT LAST COUNT.
It first started with providing meals to doctors and JJ Hospital and the COVID Control room at Mantralaya. Since then, it has been a gradual increase. As of June 25, th, we are providing meals–breakfast lunch and dinner– to over 1500 doctors from JJ, Cama, Cooper, Sion, Navi Mumbai, KEM doctors as well as the staff of the COVID control room in Mantralaya–the Maharashtra Government HQ—every day.
In early June, the total meals provided under this category, by us had crossed One Hundred Thousand.
By then, with lock-down severity intensifying, people were feeling the paucity of food supplies. As streets became deserted, so did emerge the issue of livelihood, among the homeless and migrants.
