Virender had no savings or support to fall back on during this difficult time. he did not have a ration card and was unable to apply for the electronic coupon, she was not able to access the free ration being distributed by the government. Inspite of Delhi government providing cooked meals at various spots, food was still inaccessible to her family because of the lack of information about the nearest distribution centre. he says, “My family was facing extreme poverty and we had sleep on empty stomach for a few nights. If the good people from Shreshtha Bharat Foundation had not visited here, I may not have survived. It feels like they were sent by God.”
