Rouble Nagi Art Foundation (RNAF), a Mumbai-based NGO that promotes education, women’s empowerment, and employment, has been working relentlessly to bring COVID 19 to India’s slums.
On Monday, the charity planned a ration distribution campaign in Mumbai for 400 less privileged households, along with other necessities.
Sonu Nigam, a well-known musician, BJP politician Ashish Shelar, and Dr. Sayed Zafar Islam, Member of Parliament (RS), National Spokesperson – Political & Eco Affairs, were also present at the drive.
The organization has made a considerable contribution to the Covid-19 medical treatment programme for children in India’s slums and villages. RNAF reached almost 3 lakh households during the initial wave of the epidemic, and the team is currently working tirelessly to reach out to individuals in slums, bastis, and villages, delivering basics like rations, medical kits, and sanitization.
Rouble Nagi, Founder of Rouble Nagi Art Foundation, said, “With this initiative, we are reaching out to 400 less privileged families in Bandra, Mumbai. We have also reached out to a few places like Colaba, Mahalaxmi, Bandra in the past to help them to fight the Covid- 19 crisis and to pledge that no one will sleep hungry in our reach. Besides, we have catered to Covid-positive parents who struggled to find a place to keep their uninfected children’s space. Our centres are taking care of their children by equipping them till their parents recover and it is being done free of charge by giving a positive environment and looking after them.”
Gracing the event, Renowned singer Sonu Nigam, said, “It gives me great pleasure to be part of the drive conducted by Rouble Nagi Art Foundation. The team has been doing a great job and contributing to the less privileged societies of India. They have set an example for their never-ending work towards Covid-19.
RNAF has also set up relief camps in the area, conducting routine testing and temperature checks, and ensuring that the children in the slums receive adequate medical attention. The RNAF team places a specific emphasis on organising relief squads and delivering assistance wherever it is needed, to nurture and safeguard children.
