The COVID-19 virus has proliferated across the globe causing large-scale destruction to mankind.  Though the lockdown measures have helped in containing the spread, the devastation it has left in its wake on people’s livelihood and their way of life is immense. For the past three to four months, the world, including India, has been hit by coronavirus. Economies across the world have fallen. It has made people’s lives miserable. Due to the lockdown people have been posed with a challenge to face in the coming days as various firms have closed their doors. People who were dependent on daily wages such as migrant workers, construction workers, and street vendors are left with nothing to eat. Many organizations including the government and the public have come forward to help those affected. Among such organizations, B.PAC has been working selflessly for the development of every citizen of Bengaluru City.

Many philanthropic activities have been carried out with the support of organizations like Biocon Foundation, Cognizant Foundation, TE Connectivity, Jana Bank, QUESS, SVP India, RTIT, Raintree Media, Bangalore Little Theatre, Sanghamitra Foundation, Trivium Solutions, and CWE-Catalyst for Women Entrepreneurship. The economically weak were provided with essential grocery kits and packed meals and the frontline workers such as police, medical workers, and BBMP sanitation personnel who are at the forefront of the fight against Coronavirus, are given helping hands by providing them with safety gear, PPE kits, face shields, and masks.

19,800 grocery kits, 46370 packed meals have been distributed among the poor, migrant workers across the city in some inaccessible areas too.
