The Covid pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges everywhere. In addition to the scarcity of drugs, oxygen and hospital beds, families affected by Covid have found themselves struggling to organize even one meal a day. Despite the raging pandemic, several support groups have come to the aid of people in distress. Lucknow’s Satkar Charitable Trust has become one of those organizations that has helped thousands of people by providing them with free and nutritious food.
The trust, founded by like-minded youth, served more than 3,500 meals in three weeks. Hundreds of food packages are also distributed outside of King George Medical University (KGMU) Hospital in Lucknow to patient participants every day.

Apart from this ration, it is also distributed in the Nirala Nagar area of Lucknow among families who are struggling to find food and other basic needs due to the Covid-induced lockdown.
“These are difficult times and we are here to make our contribution to society. Feeding families who cannot cook for themselves is the least we can do. At Atkar, we are working in the same direction ”. said Dr Aayushi Asthana, one of the members of the trust.
