As you are aware, IIT-KGP is closed to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus for the next 6 months resulting in 6,435 daily wage workers such as hall workers, construction workers, and other contract employees being laid off without any separation pay or benefits, leading to their families being adversely affected. In addition, 4,000 villagers who live in close proximity of IIT-KGP have suffered a loss of daily wages for a total count of 10,500 directly affected.
Director Tewari has called upon the IITKGP Foundation to raise approximately $1.0 M to fund a relief package designed to benefit 10,500 persons for 6 months. In addition, he has put together a team of faculty to oversee various aspects implementing the same. The proposed package will provide basic amenities like rice, dal, etc. and includes face masks, gloves, etc. to protect against the virus. A PDF (link found below) gives details of the basic relief package which works out to approximately $20/person-family/month for 6 months.
More than $260,000 has been raised so far by some compassionate and generous alumni; however, we need another $740,000 to be raised. IITKGP Foundation requests you to 'adopt' as many individuals/families that you can at just $20/individual-family.
Adopt 1 mess worker + 1 dhobi: $40/month;
Adopt 1 mess worker + 1 dhobi + 1 gardener: $60/month;
Adopt 1 mess worker + 1 dhobi + 1 gardener + 1 construction worker: $80/month.
Adopt 1 worker-family: $100/month; Adopt 2 worker-families: $200/month; Adopt 5 worker-families: $500/month; Adopt 10 families: $1,000/month
There are about 10,500 employees/workers and their family members that NEED HELP NOW, so please donate to the IITKGP Foundation, and make your tax-free contribution by using the below donation button.
