Aid for LGBTQIA Communities

Sangama

About: Founded in 1999 in Bangalore. It also has an office in Hassan, karnataka. Sangama has decided to support economically weak sex workers, sexual minorities and transgender persons across 10 districts of Karnataka with nutritional supplements in order to build their immunity given the impact of Covid-19. We plan to support at least 1000 every month. Each nutritional supplement kit costs INR 250. For 1000 people for the next 10 months, this would cost INR 25 lakhs. With your support, they hope to be able to reach out to one of the most ignored sections of Indian society. And while we cannot do everything, if you pitch in, we will at least ensure they see through this period of grave uncertainty.
