Corona Virus pandemic is an unprecedented event for the world. This is not a war to be fought by just the government. The citizen and civil society at large has an equal role to play and civil society organizations need to work, facilitate and collaborate with the government in the times to come.
Empower Foundation has been working on areas like Wildlife conservation and youth development since a decade. Under the recent directives of NITI Aayog, Government of India, Team Empower has started working for #MigrantWorkers amidst the Corona Virus #Lockdown and has been able to reach out 2500+ migrants helping with 30000+ meals across Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Bengaluru, Surat, Solapur, Sangli, Amravati, Aurangabad to help them with food, ration and allied. The efforts still continue and the team is dedicated to support the needy throughout the pandemic
