Covid 19 response

Food Distribution

Humara Bachpan was conceptualized and initiated by Dharitri Patnaik, an international social development expert with more than 22 years of experience. It was formally registered as Humara Bachpan Trust (HBT) in August 2014 to fill a gap in the development sector as no other organization in India was working on living conditions of young children in urban poverty. Humara Bachpan Trust work  initially focused at par with United Nation’s ‘New Urban Agenda’ for sustainable urbanization with children, youth and women to have their voices heard and make them active participants in planning and shaping their cities to socially smart cities and now women on SDGs.

Thousands of poor and vulnerable population are facing the most difficult times during this 21-days nationwide lockdown. FICCI FLO reached out to the government to provide support and cater to the food needs of the most vulnerable population-elderly, persons with disability, single women headed households, migrant workers and daily wage earners.

State Government and city administration has adopted a great deal of measures to protect the poorest and most vulnerable people from hunger. However the requirement is huge and government cannot alone reach every one. During these trying times, FICCI FLO ( India’s only Women Chamber of Commerce) Bhubaneswar Chapter’s members crowdfunded to provide 6000 hot cooked meals and dry ration to the most vulnerable people as identified by Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation and Humara Bachpan Trust which is the implementing partner of Bhubaneswar Smart City Ltd.

FICCI FLO Bhubaneswar and its partner HBT is reaching out to acutely vulnerable elderly, persons with disabilities, destitute, single women, construction workers and daily wage earners living in the slums of Bhubaneswar.

The volunteers are maintaining social distancing and following hygienic practices while doing food distribution work.
