Basic Needs- Education,Shelter and COVID19 support to the poverty Fund
1. Support 30 more kids for 2021 and 2022 school year : DBSSS has identified more than 30 poorest of the poor children of all ages who are deprived of their basic right to education due to the financial crisis during the covid-19 period as many of their parents were forcefully terminated by their managements from their jobs. We are waiting eagerly for kind hearted people to come forward either with sponsorship or scholarships to support them for their educational needs like tuition fee, books, uniforms, nutrition etc. DBSSS would mediate to help them realize their goal in life with timely reporting. The best gift one can give is the gift of education. 2. COVID-19 Relief support : Even though the Covid-19 impact is very bad DBSSS team has been working relentlessly from day one to gather food supplies, cooking food, packing, transporting and distributing food supplies to the poor from door to door. We are very much be empathetic to needy people who lost their livelihoods and who are stuck up at places other than their own for lac of transport facility. Many were forced to walk for hundreds of miles only to give up their life on the way due to starvation. Now there is an urgent need to provide them provisions to stop starvation in the current Covid-19 as it is taking different turns. 3. Housing for homeless : Shelter is the necessity for all human beings. 30% of the population in Hyderabad enjoy staying in their own residence but 50% of middle class people live in rented houses and 20% poorest of the poor population live in utter poverty which is resulted with lot of slums, highly populated with unhygienic condition, no less moral standards. With in our limited resources we have been giving our efforts to put up single bedroom, kitchen, hall and washroom to nearly 27 families with our donors help here and abroad. visit website for more details : https://www.divyabalasocialservicesociety.org/

Please donate to Banco Alimentar Contra a Fome, the Food Bank in Portugal Fund
Please donate to Banco Alimentar Contra a Fome https://www.bancoalimentar.pt), the Food Bank in Portugal. However small your contribution might be, it still puts food in the hands of families. I pledge to walk at least 100km in 5 days to make it to the small city of Fatima, along one of the main routes, the Tagus route https://caminhosdefatima.org/en/ and joining millions of pilgrims visiting each year. During the pandemic I have realised how fortunate many of us are. Many people are dying or getting sick, mental health issues, domestic violence, racial abuse, substance abuse, you name it. We have all suffered in different ways and our economies have all taken a hit with many people losing their jobs, people struggling to put food on the table and afford the everyday necessities in life. It’s time for us to give something back, now more than ever and it's never too late! I am so lucky to work for a company that supports corporate social responsibility by giving us time off to support community causes but also matches Cisco employee donations. Those who can should help out, however small our contribution might be, that still goes a long way. Many people in our neighborhoods not only can't pay their mortgage or their rent but also can't pay their bills or buy enough food. In an ever more unequal world we can start by helping our communities. Please join me in donating towards the Portuguese Food Bank (Banco Alimentar Contra a Fome https://www.bancoalimentar.pt/), your help will make a difference. During the pandemic they received in excess of 80,000 requests for help, many of which from people who never asked for help before  https://sicnoticias.pt/especiais/coronavirus/2021-03-23-Banco-Alimentar-e-Caritas-preocupados-com-os-efeitos-do-fim-das-moratorias-bancarias-4cb815ba Poverty has reached new levels by also dragging the middle class into it. Here just one of many stories and article that can be easily found online https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-portugal-algarve/food-bank-charities-busy-in-algarve-as-pandemic-ravages-portugal-tourism-idUSKBN2BP0KH I am not trained at all and I have never done this before. I gained 10kg+ during the pandemic and my back is in bits but starting on May 17th I pledge to walk at least 100km in 5 days to make it to Fatima. I will post at least one picture per day on LinkedIn with the tracking. Please donate here on BrightFund so that your donation can be matched by Cisco.
