₹ 47,64,902 raised of ₹ 50,00,000 

Minimum amount to donate: ₹150



Dattu Sopan Bhandare, 80, lives alone in Mudegaon village of the Beed district in Maharashtra. Hit by drought, his children have moved to urban areas and after his wife died a few years back, he has to take care of himself. But life has been hard for Dattu, as he cannot work in the fields any longer to meet his basic needs. “I feel helpless and I have gone to bed hungry many times,” he says

That was before Manavlok came to Dattu’s rescue. Through its Trupti Kitchen program, Manavlok provides 500 abandoned elderly people like Dattu with two nutritious meals a day.

The problem in the drought-hit Marathwada is huge and Manavlok would like to expand its kitchen facilities to many more villages. But Manavlok cannot do it without your support. Donate now.

Manavlok’s Mission 

“At present, we are providing meals in three drought-hit districts of Maharashtra. It’s our commitment that we will not allow these elderly people to live in hunger,” says Aniket Dwarkadas Lohiya, Secretary, Manavlok.

It was way back in the 1970s that a group of youths decided to seek solutions to the socio-economic problems of rural communities in Maharashtra and started working in the region. After years of understanding and working in the field, Marathwada Navnirman Lokayat (MANAVLOK), was born. While Manavlok has various interventions, its Trupti Kitchen has been life-changing for many elderly citizens.
