Mumbai's Dabbawalas are now distributing warm meals at city's COVID care centres & hospitals!

These Dabbawalas have prioritized humanity over everything.

While the swelling second COVID wave has drenched the country with infections and posed several trials for the commoners, Mumbai's Dabbawalas are going an extra mile to help the needy. Bestowing the word 'selflessness' with an all-new meaning, they have once again plunged into action to feed the hungry hordes but this time, they are distributing meals at COVID care centres and hospitals. This segment of the Maximum City has been constantly facing the consequences of a stretched lockdown, which includes extreme financial deprivation, however, these Dabbawalas have prioritized humanity over everything.

"Whatever the situation, we need to save humanity"

A spokesperson of the organization mentioned that they have been providing food to various COVID care centres and hospitals in the city, even though there are financial difficulties due to lockdown. "Whatever the situation, we need to save humanity," he further added.

The representative also stated that some Dabbawalas have been voluntarily contributing to this cause and they are also on the receiving end of financial help, from their Trust. "We distribute food at three COVID care centres- BKC, Malabar Road and Nana Chowk. We also distribute food packets outside the COVID hospitals. At least 50 packets are distributed daily outside KEM hospital," the spokesperson reported.

No matter what the circumstances are, these Dabbawalas have been serving the city of Mumbai since 1890 with clockwork precision. During the pre-pandemic era, over two lakh people across the city had access to warm home-cooked meals because of these superheroes and even now, many COVID patients in the city are well-fed, thanks to their collective and altruistic efforts.

In a broad view, this delivery mechanism with a Six Sigma rating of 99.9999 (that is, less than 1 mistake in every 6 million deliveries), has been rendered helpless due to the soaring infections in the state and especially, in the capital city. Hopefully, this congregation will be back in business soon with garam dabbas and full pockets.
