When we talk about Mumbai, mentioning Dabbawalas becomes essential. Mumbai is incomplete without them and their service. However, because of continuous lockdown since March, the Dabbawala community is also facing a huge challenge.
Sanjay Dutt, Suniel Shetty, and Aslam Shaikh are here to help Dabbawalas
A month ago, we reported that How the Mumbai Dabbawalas Seek Cash Assistance From Maharashtra Govt As Lockdown Dries Up Income. At that point, they were extremely helpless. Realizing their pain, the Maharashtra government came to their rescue.
“It’s an initiative started by Aslam Bhai and Sanju, I had no hesitation in joining hands with them. Prema Cha Dabba becomes even more beautiful when everyone gets together.”
Not only in Mumbai, but they are also serving the Dabbawalas till Pune. As many of these dabbawalas have returned to their natives in scarce of money. Suniel’s NGO, Save the Children India is executing the entire plan. The food kit they deliver constitutes rice, dal, sugar, atta and oil.
Sanju Baba says on this initiative,
“The community that once fed so many in Mumbai is facing starvation today. So, we are delivering them our dabbas with lots of love.”
