#Coronawarriors – Prerit Rana

The moment he decided to plunge in to the #coronacrisis, 38 year old Prerit Rana CEO, Agrasar asked his wife to move with their three daughters to her mother’s place. That happened two weeks ago. Since then, he and his team of 70 odd volunteers (“Agrasar Sathis”) have been providing rations and cooked meals to 11,500 daily wage earners every single day. Funds have come from corporates, individuals and unexpected help has come from all quarters. His ex-employees, ex-volunteers have also pitched in to help distribute food at Sikanderpur, Islampur, Dhunda Hera, Dayanand Puri, Dharam Colony, Carterpuri and other jhuggi clusters. Social distancing and sanitation standards are taken care of during such drives. The work says Prerit is giving him a peep into the basic survival needs in tough times. When asked about his learning, he says humbly “atte dal ka bhav pata chal gaya hai”. Kudos to Prerit!
