An engineering student who comes from a family of 27 doctors is doing a good cause by feeding home-cooked food to COVID-19 patients in-home quarantine, free of cost. Sneha Srirampur, a second-year B-Tech student from the city, grew up seeing the doctors in her family and how they put their patients before family and worked tirelessly. She also noticed the work of police and municipal workers and decided she had to chip in during these testing times.
Initially, she started the initiative with her friends and charged a nominal price for her services. However, on May 17, she started her Ashirwad Food Service along with her family. Her friends and family promoted her free food efforts on social media platforms. Sneha also shares that her family members have provided her with financial help too.
Sneha also got a lot of support and funds from doctors based abroad. She has also managed to get the support of various NGOs and online food delivery platforms to help her with providing food to those in quarantine.
In fact, the delivery platforms are charging a nominal fee from her so they can feed the needy who sit outside hospitals during weekends.
Today, Sneha, along with her brothers, provides food to police personnel who are posted at various check posts in the city.
