Here is our 10th story about reaching out to communities and individuals at risk during the pandemic. Irshad Sheikh, a member of the M-East Ward, with help from Transforming M Ward, TISS, helps manage five community kitchens in the area that feed close to 6,000 individuals each day. The idea for setting up these kitchens came from the inaccessibility of local shelters, which are overcrowded and have long queues. Irshad Sheikh says that collecting resources has been challenging, but he hopes to be able to continue the kitchens for as long as the lockdown extends.
