Distributed essential kits to 25,000 families amidst COVID-19
Yuva Unstoppable, founded by Amitabh Shah, collaborated with various partners to feed and provide family essential kits to about 25,000 families worst hit by the ongoing global pandemic. The kits offered a nutritious snack, ration, and safety materials to the neediest across Haryana, Maharashtra, Delhi-NCR, Rajasthan and Gujarat. Yuva Unstoppable also distributed similar kits to thousands of migrant labourers from Bihar returning to their native from New Delhi and Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

The aim of this distribution drive was to alleviate the miserable conditions of the poor, jobless and the migrants during COVID-19 times. The kits consisted of daily essentials such as rice, pulses, refined oil and spices along with a pair of slippers, sanitizers, and a few masks.
