Simple Crowdfunding is providing logistics and messaging support to a charity that is distributing over a 1,000 meals per day to the elderly, healthcare workers and vulnerable groups.
The Go Dharmic Emergency Coronovirus Appeal was set up by charity Go Dharmic, which is run by volunteers and puts all its donations it receives directly into campaigns.
With this Covid-19 campaign Go Dharmic has distributed over 28,000 meals throughout the UK and provided personal protective equipment to those in need.
Some of the meals distributed are also being provided to the homeless who are currently being housed in temporary make-shift commercial unit accommodation, hotels or serviced accommodation.
“We’re not currently in the best environment, however there are lots of fundraising efforts and charities helping people,” said Atuksha Poonwassie, co-founder and managing director of property-backed crowdfunding platform Simple Crowdfunding.
“It’s great to see communities helping communities and the power of the crowd. I really like the compassion.”
“Go Dharmic is a platform for compassion,” said Hemal Randerwala, co-founder of Go Dharmic.
“We are helping people to come together to reduce suffering wherever it is. We run multiple social action campaigns, one of our urgent ones being the Coronovirus Appeal.”
