The first essential component of social justice is adequate food for all mankind. Food is the moral right of all who are born into this world. ~ Norman Borlaug, biologist and humanitarian
World Food Day is meant to raise awareness to the plight of millions of people around the world struggling with food scarcity and malnourishment, and to the fact that there’s still lots of work to be done to achieve Zero Hunger. World Food Day 2020 called for cooperation and solidarity to help the underprivileged recover from the current COVID-19 crisis.
All over the world nearly 690 million people are undernourished, with over 144 million children suffering the most with severe food-related health issues. (Source: https://www.globalhungerindex.org/results.html)
At Niyaaz, we wish to change these statistics for a better tomorrow with kindness, charity and healthy nutritious food. As a part of our World Food Day activity on 16th October 2020, our team visited Swami Vivekanand Seva Pratishtan at Subhash Nagar, Belguam to cook and distribute food to the residents.
Dinner was prepared and later served with the help of our team members. We are grateful to the staff at the Ashram for their co-operation and efforts to creating a better future for the individuals under their care.
Niyaaz constantly strives to help those in need and work together with communities to create a world free of hunger.
