Free-Nutritious-Food Delivered to 4,550 Street-Children on June 2021 || Mojar-School || OBF
Mojar-School delivered free nutritious-foods to 4,550 Underprivileged children and uprooted people on June 2021.
Lockdown has been placed again, the suffering of hunger will start again. “Will Mojar-School still be beside us?” a street-child asks. With such questions and new fears, the month of June ended.
The covid-19 situation is becoming more dangerous day by day. Repeatedly governments are imposing lockdowns all over the country. While everything shuts down, underprivileged-people suffer to find a way to earn for sustaining their families. Mostly the ones who make earnings daily by selling items on the streets. As no one is permitted to go out during lockdowns, neither are these underprivileged-people authorized to set up shops or their regular sales. These underprivileged-people have to starve themselves when their earning sources are gone. Mojar-School has always been beside the underprivileged-people in such harsh situations. Since the first lockdown in 2020 Mojar-School has delivered free nutritious-foods to such underprivileged-people regularly and is continuing to do so.
These activities were possible because of the well-wishers who stay beside Mojar-School through the good and bad days. The underprivileged-people received nutritious-foods regularly throughout the pandemic situation. 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 June 2021.
Free Nutritious-Food Delivering Update
In June 2021, Mojar-School has provided free nutritious-foods to 4,550 underprivileged-street-children and uprooted-people. Of these, 97% were street-children and uprooted people in Dhaka (Shahabag, Komlapur, Sadarghat, Dhalpur, Street-Children’s Shelter, Dhanmondi, Uttara, Tejgaon, Shaympur, Khilgaon). The remaining 3% were delivered to the underprivileged children and uprooted people outside Dhaka (in Monpura 1- South Shakuchia – Bhola District)
We try to bring variation to the nutritious-foods menu every month. The menu includes vegetables, Chicken-khichuri, Rice-egg, Rice-chicken, Chicken-Polaou, Chicken biriyani, juice, cake, and our famous egg-khichuri, to 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
It might be very little for us, but good free nutritious-foods 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 June 2021, our well-wishers have celebrated a total of 5 events (birthdays, death anniversaries, blessings for parents, and cultural events) through Mojar-School. All these events had cakes, juice and good quality nutritious-foods (chicken-biriyani, chicken-khichuri, and chicken-polao) for the children instead of regular meals.
Mojar School’s Well-Wishers
Mojar-School’s well-wishers have directly helped us reach out to a large number of children in June 2021. All of them have donated through the bKash app and the official website of Mojar-School.
Also, the encouragement of thousands of well-wishers through social media has further strengthened our confidence.
Long-term Plan & Impact
Mojar-School believes that long-term solutions will not come by only delivering free nutritious-foods. We must ensure the education of underprivileged-children. Now, 50% of the underprivileged-children enlighten by the light of education through the efforts of Mojar-School for the last 08 years. Mojar-School will keep moving ahead with a plan to ensure education for the remaining 50% of the children very soon.
Thank You Note for Donors
Lastly, we would like to thank all the donors and well-wishers. Today, with your support, Mojar-School has become a place of trust for hundreds of underprivileged-street-children and uprooted people. Without you all, we would never be able to deliver free nutritious-foods to 4,550 underprivileged-children in June 2021.
