An NGO named 'Uday Foundation' has been working extremely hard to feed the underprivileged outside AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) in Delhi, and now you can help it make this cause an even bigger success. The initiative was kick-started after the revelation that most family members tending to serious patients lack the time and money to take care of themselves. This includes not having access to any nutritious meals. With the NGO stepping in, this has changed to a large extent, thanks to this food van outside the government hospital that serves free, wholesome food to the underprivileged. They are especially concerned about those coming from neighbouring states as well as children visiting the hospital from distant places to get treated for long, serious ailments.

How You Can Help

Contributing to this worthy cause is pretty simple; you just need to buy a meal (or several meals) from the van by paying a small sum of Rs 11. The proceeds will go into preparing food for the less privileged, and will be provided to them free of cost. The NGO recently collaborated with Paytm for raising donations, so you could use the app to make payments too.

Uday Foundation is run by couple Tulika and Rahul, who went through a very tough time when their second son, Arjunuday was born with several congenital defects, and had to undergo nine corrective surgeries at various hospitals. He still requires daily enema to clear his colon. 

Besides buying meals from the van, you could also visit the foundation's website and make donations of different amounts. The NGO aims to feed 1 million people and we hope we can help it achieve this goal.
