Together With Children - Towards A Hunger Free India

Highlights Of #HungerFreeIndia Telethon: The Together With Children Initiative Aims To Support Millions Who Face Hunger During Coronavirus Outbreak

NDTV and World Vision India, a non-profit organisation, have joined hands to support millions of children and their families across India who continue to face hunger and inadequate nutrition caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

When a strong defence against the virus is good nutrition and strong immunity, thousands of vulnerable children and their parents are uncertain of their next meal. Join the campaign and help us raise funds to reach out to thousands of families with immediate relief assistance and long-term recovery and rehabilitation programmes.

Here are the Highlights of the #HungerFreeIndia Telethon:

Actor Swara Bhasker on the telethon



- The silver lining in these rather dark times is when citizens have stepped up and done their bit and have tried very hard to make sure that they help those who are vulnerable. I would only say that it is really the question of us to continue doing what we are doing. The more privileged among us can continue to pay the salary of our domestic help and drivers even now when they are not on duty. 

- We need to continue asking questions. There are 77 million tonnes of food grains available with the Food Corporation of India when the buffer requirement is only 24 million tonnes. We must ask the government to use this to help those in need.

About The Campaign

Millions of children and their families across India continue to face hunger and inadequate nutrition caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. When a strong defence against the virus is good nutrition and strong immunity, thousands of vulnerable children and their parents are uncertain of their next meal.

World Vision India is closely working with the state governments and the district administration to provide people with basic essentials during this lockdown. So far we have distributed cooked meals to more than 200,000 people, provided rations to over 18,000 families, distributed over 324,000 masks and 12,446 personal protective equipment (PPEs) to health workers, among many other forms of assistance.

Join NDTV and World Vision India in raising the much needed funds we need to help us reach out to thousands of more families with immediate relief assistance and long-term recovery and rehabilitation programmes.
