Mojar-School Delivered-Free-Nutritious-Food to 7,803 Street-Children and Uprooted-People in April-2021
Mojar-School has been delivering free-nutritious-food to underprivileged-children since 2013.
The Holy month of Ramadan started in the middle of April. Also, a strict lockdown imposed all over the country due to a surge in COVID-19 cases. The underprivileged was not to overcome their loss of the previous lockdown when the second one was imposed. Many of them didn’t have any source of income and were not being able to manage the proper amount of nutrition while they were fasting. This made fasting very tough on their physical and mental health.
Mojar-School came forward in this devastating situation. Besides regular free-nutritious-food distribution, Mojar-School provided Iftar for thousands of underprivileged-children and uprooted people throughout the month; and is continuing to do so. We also distributed food packs (one month’s food rations for a family of 4) to the underprivileged-families of the students of Permanent School: Mojar-School (Dhaka and Monpura); those who were unable to afford healthy food for their Sehri.
Because of generous supporters like you, these underprivileged-children and uprooted people can start their fasting by eating some free-nutritious-food and knows they have Iftar ready for them to look forward to. Many guardian’s and street-children’s struggles have become easier, and that has only been possible as you supported us in this journey.
So, we are presenting a brief update of the Food Program in April 2021.
Free-Nutritious-Food Delivering Update
In April 2021, Mojar-School has provided free-nutritious-food to 7,803 underprivileged-street-children and uprooted people. Of these, 77% were street-children in Dhaka, while the remaining 23% underprivileged-children outside Dhaka, in Monpura.
We try to bring variation in the free-nutritious-food menu every month. The menu includes rice-chicken, rice-egg, rice-fish, vegetables, chicken khichuri, chicken polao, aloo chop, piyaju, dates, banana, and famous egg-khichuri, differentiate the taste of the underprivileged-children. While arranging the meals ensuring the nutritional value of food is our priority and giving protein the utmost importance.
Birthdays and Other Events
In addition to arranging regular nutritious meals, many of our well-wishers also celebrated their birthdays or other important events with the street-children.
It might be very little for us, but good free-nutritious-food is like a dream come true for those street-children’s celebrations. Because of our well-wishers, the street-children get a touch of enjoyment and celebration in their stale life.
This April 2021, our well-wishers have celebrated a total of 18 events (birthdays, death anniversaries, blessings for parents, and cultural events) through Mojar-School. All these events had cakes, juice, chocolates, fruits, mineral water, and good quality food (chicken-khichuri and chicken-polao) for the children instead of regular meals. One of the well-wishers also distributed caps and toys for the underprivileged-children in an event.
