Will our leaders take care of the rest?

Millions of people sleep hungry in India every day.
This year we shall celebrate our 70th Independence Day and yet, there exists this dire problem that has been lingering around for so long without being resolved.
Robin Hood Army (RHA), on this Independence Day, is launching a campaign called #Mission1Million wherein twenty-somethings across India and Pakistan will bring together the private sector and civil society to serve 1 Million hungry citizens on 14th and 15th August 2018.

People from all walks of life – students, private and public sectors – would rally together for this unique initiative that is touted to be “the largest war against hunger”.
“The idea behind #Mission1Million is to draw awareness to the fact that there are more than 200 million citizens in India and Pakistan that sleep hungry every night. As the youth of our nations, it is imperative that we take onus, stop blaming everything on the State; and as private citizens use our skills and collective networks to make a real difference.”
The goal of the mission is to collect and facilitate a million meals that shall be provided to orphanages, old-age homes, homeless people and ailing patients.
Xiaomi has come on board as a national partner and will be providing meals for 500,000 citizens across India.
“Today, all our success is completely dedicated to the love from our India community. Tying up with Robin Hood Army gave us an opportunity to give a little something to the community and be associated with this noble cause,”
said Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India.
This process is going to occur in 3 segments. From across India and Pakistan, 10,000 Robins will come together, manage field operations, take care of logistics to create a startup ecosystem and use social media to propagate the idea far and wide.

The Robin Hood Army
Who are we?
The Robin Hood Army is a volunteer-based organization that works to get surplus food from restaurants and the community to serve less fortunate people.
Our local chapters are run by friends and colleagues, who hope to create a difference in their own unique way. For example, restaurants in the neighbourhood of Green Park will contribute to the homeless of the locality, through volunteers who live in Greek Park. Our “Robins” are largely students and young working professionals – everyone does this in their free time. The lesser fortunate sections of society we serve include homeless families, orphanages, patients from public hospitals, and old age homes.

Simple really beat global hunger and bring out the best of humanity using food as a medium.
The idea is to create self-sustained chapters across the world who will look after their local community. And in the process, inspire people around us to give back to this who need it most.
