They decided to use the Lockdown judiciously to start an online campaign and successfully raised enough funds to provide grains to these families which would sustain till a week.

    The students being of Social Work background kept complete Precautionary measures for themselves wearing Masks and Gloves. They distribute the items keeping the principles of Social Distancing in Mind.

    They provide rations to 60 families at Samta temporary settlement, 15 families at Undera lake temporary settlements, 10 families of Migrant workers moving back to Jhalod, 150 kms from Baroda on foot at Genda Circle and another six families were also helped by the students at Dasha maa Temporary settlements, Gorwa.
