Ahiripukur Anugharh Peace Foundation (APF), a URI member group, has provided food rations and daily essential items to about 250 people throughout South Kolkata in the last 15 days. APF was the first responder in the Ahiripukur community in South Kolkata, where most of the residents are daily wage labourers, working at minimally-paying jobs like garage mechanics, house painters, and rickshaw peddlers.
APF members assessed the immediate needs of the aggrieved community and made a list of things to do. In the next two days, the team met and began their preparation for relief response. The APF team also sanitized the community and surrounding roads with bleaching powder and phenyl. APF has also provided dry rations and daily essential items (including rice, dal, atta, potato, maggi, flattened rice, biscuits, and soap) to 50 families in the community.
