Crypto Relief and Goonj have partnered up to continue delivering a timely response to the ever-unfolding, evolving disaster - Covid
The past two years have been an “unlearning” curve that has created a path to remodel work in a more decentralised, and efficient manner as per the times we live in. Goonj’s more than the two-decades-old robust grassroots network has been activated to address the scarcity of resources, be it hunger, livelihood or medical aid, to fill the gaps through pan India interventions.
The initiative assures that a curated solution is delivered to each and every community across the country. With this in mind, the area of focus has been on the missed-out communities- such as Transgenders, Slum Dwellers, Rag Pickers, Persons with disabilities, etc. whose sufferings have magnified due to the pandemic.
Talking about this partnership, Anshu Gupta, Founder - Goonj mentioned, “The support from Crypto Relief addresses multiple issues of hunger, overburdened healthcare systems in the rural sphere through backing our last mile workers with Comprehensive Healthcare Giver kits, and supporting Not-Alone isolation centres, which can further be used to mitigate the effects of covid in India.”
Sandeep Nailwal, Founder - Crypto Relief quoted, “We cannot address a pandemic without looking at livelihood. With the approach followed by Goonj around the dignity of the receiver, the monetary influx will assure that millions of people across India are able to live dignified lives. The collective goal is to fill some crucial gaps in the system be it medical or otherwise.”
Goonj is a two-decade-old organisation that aims to use urban discard as a tool for development. With dignity as the central tenet of our day-to-day operations- we have laid the foundations for a strong Pan-India network across 28 states and Union Territories. We aim to become a people’s movement for development. By valuing the local and traditional wisdom of the people and letting them lead the way to their neglected development issues.
