Ever since the Coronavirus pandemic hit Indian borders, there has been a stark increase in people who are suffering from shortage of food. In an effort to help those in need, Robin Hood Army, Lucknow is coming to the rescue of millions. The newest and perhaps most ambitious mission yet, #Mission 30M aims to provide food to 30 Million people around the world by 15th August, Independence Day. In these trying times, the Robin Hood Army is living up to its name.
#Mission30M is the largest food relief effort by civic society
With this ambitious mission, the Robin Hood Army aims to bringing together corporates, media houses and volunteers across 10 countries. The union will then work towards serving staple food to thirty million of the most affected people across rural and urban areas in the world.
Interestingly, this initiative will be carried out in three steps. The steps will focus on combining the powers of technology and the media while rationing out healthy quantities of food to the needy. 60,000 Robins across 200 cities in India, Bahrain, Botswana, Canada, Kenya, Malaysia, Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Uganda, will adopt local neighbourhoods and 5 villages each, and serve rations to 30 million people by 15th August. The food will go to underdeveloped rural pockets, orphanages, old-age homes, homeless people, ailing patients, and daily labourers.
Keeping the people updated
To keep the average internet user updated with their progress, the RHA has a system of their own. The tech platform created by the RHA team (robinhoodarmy.com/mission30M) & social media handles will share live feeds of real-time updates across geographical locations.
RHA has partnered at local and country-wide levels with radio stations, billboard companies, influencers, media houses, and digital groups to mobilise local communities and broadcast the message of acting against hunger.
