Gangtok: Sikkim Entrepreneurship and Economic Development Cell organized a charity lunch for patients at STNM Hospital on Sunday. With the weekend lockdown, many patients and their families have been struggling for food and relying mostly on supply from homes. But, not all are privileged with homes nearby.
Taking the same into consideration, SEED, a conglomerate of entrepreneurs under the patronage of Chief Minister Prem Singh Golay, will now give free lunch for patients and their families.
Speaking with EastMojo, SEED convener Raj Lama highlighted how most SEED members are into the food business through their restaurants and cloud kitchen. “People in hospitals have been facing hardship for food, with commercial establishments shutting down on weekends. Understanding the situation, with due consultation with STNM management, we are serving food to patients and their families from the concourse of the hospital,” said Lama.
SEED is considerate of carrying out the service every weekend, with room for others to carry out such service. “We just started today, and if more is needed, we will discuss that. We are coming up with data management for aid to COVID patients in home isolation to help them. There is a stage-wise plan on aiding the people. We are keen on acting on all these requirements of the people currently in need. We welcome other NGOs, such that we can divide the service,” Lama added.
