SAI – Operation Hunger

Home delivered a month’s provisions to 3468 starving families

In continuation with our previous post dated 31.03. 2020, we would like to thank and update all our dear fellow brethren who have been praying fervently and lending a helping hand towards ‘Operation Hunger’. You are our motivating force and we will not be able to continue this God-initiated project without your sincere support and encouragement. We extend our sincere thanks to all those who have encouraged us over telephone and the dear ones who have promised us whole hearted financial help to proceed further in this practically impossible mission.

In the last one week, food distribution work has been taking place initially in the four States of Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal and Jharkhand in full swing and some selected areas in the South Indian States. Thereafter, the same is extended to the other States of Orissa, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam. Over and above this, a large number of our people from almost all over the Country have asked for some kind of a small financial assistance for survival. All these individual requests explaining their individual or family need were also duly considered and we could extend a little financial help to all the people who has mailed us in our email stewards.assn@gmail.com

In this first phase of ‘Operation Hunger’ we could distribute a month’s Food Provisions to 3309 Families valued at Rs. 15,07,624 ( Rs. 15.07 Lakhs ). Apart from this, a financial assistance of Rs.3,64,700 ( Rs.3.64 Lakhs ) was distributed to 159 of our needy Families belonging to different States of our Country.Thereby with a total amount of Rs.18.71 Lakhs, we could cater to the urgent physical needs of 3468 of our dear fellow brethren who were at the verge of starvation. As we are undertaking this mission with much care and precision, we have made sure that the benefits of this project reaches the intended beneficiaries without fail. If you are interested to know any further details, please feel free to contact us at SAI office through our email stewards.assn@gmail.com

Our dear young brothers who are involved in the distributions including their State Leader are worthy for an applause and a word of appreciation. They have travelled by foot to these inaccessible terrains after getting the necessary permission from law enforcement authorities. Our banking personnel also worked wholeheartedly along with us to send all these numerous payments to recipients hailing from different parts of India. Our heart felt thanks to the YES Bank management who has assured us of warm support in the coming days too.

People from remote areas who received the food packets from our foot soldiers had tears in their eyes and testified that they had not had any food since the past couple of days. They looked upon our brothers and exclaimed that they are angels from heaven and received the food packets with open hands and hearts of blessing.

We are very well aware we are just at the start line and have miles and miles to go in order to reach the finishing mark. We will need many lakhs or crores of funds to continue ‘Operation Hunger’ if the present situation prevails. We understand well that this pandemic has adversely affected each one of you, some way or other, but if you and your family are not affected by hunger, unlike thousands of our poor families, you may please offer a helping hand towards this blessed mission which has been entrusted to us by none other than our beloved Master.
