Barclays' COVID-19 Community Aid Package in action

Susheel Sadh Memorial Charity

Since its inception, COVID-19 has claimed more than 3 million lives. Amongst those was Rubicon's family member, Susheel Sadh. We have lost someone who used to provide comfort to all in the office. He has left behind a 5-year-old daughter and a wife who has been a homemaker. Rubicon is raising a fundraiser to support his family to financially deal with the next few months of peril.

Now that Susheel isn't with us anymore and the family has lost their entire savings in the efforts to save him, help us to support his family. Not only will you be committing to an honest and noble cause, but you will also help a child grow into the future she deserves and keep a family going after a tremendous lost they have suffered.

Ranjit Lahu Adagale Memorial Charity

Ranjit Lahu Adagale is a bright and hardworking student. He is currently in the second year of his graduation in B.Com (Bachelor of Commerce). Along with completing his studies, he used to work night shifts to support his family.

But one day Ranjit complained of severe pain in his lower rectum. After consulting doctors, he was diagnosed with hemorrhoids and required an immediate surgery. The total cost of the surgery will be around INR 30,000.

His father is an alcoholic, who is not in the position to support his family. Ranjit and his mother were the only bread earners in the family. But along with Ranjit, his mother too had to quit her job to take care of her son. They used to earn barely enough to put food on the table but now they have no means to sustain themselves. They have run out of all their savings and Ranjit's mother is contemplating selling their home on account of lack of funds for her son's treatment.
Doctors say that his condition will only deteriorate as the days pass without any surgery. Ranjit's body is not able to stand the pain anymore and so he refuses to eat to avoid more pain.

Coming forward and asking for help has been extremely difficult for his mother but it is their last resort. We sincerely urge everyone to contribute to Ranjit's surgery in their capacity and share it with their contacts.

Ranjit is an extremely bright and responsible student, who has always worked hard to support his mother. Your small donation can help a mother save her son. It's not the amount that matters but the meaning behind your donation. Donate forward!

Ration Distribution Drive

"Behind every kit thet we donate, there is a household that gets a month's supply of ration"

Ongoing initiative to reach out to those most affected by the pandemic.

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted thousands of people of their livelihoods resulting to challenges in providing to their families the basic necessity of food. Of the ones most impacted are the vulnerable communities including migrant workers, construction labors, masonries, bricklayers, daily wage earners like painters, gardeners, household domestic help workers, juniors artist, lighting technicians, etc and other missed out communities and small businesses like the circus groups, restaurant helpers, local transporters -auto rickshaws drivers, etc.

Thus helping thousands of people in need to sustain this pandemic. There is a huge need to further support these communities and lots of more people in dire need for help.
