News Desk, News Nation 360 : Robin Hood Army (RHA), the volunteer-based zero funds organization has joined hands with WhatsApp, Uber and Google to bring together volunteers who will help vaccinate 1.5 lakh Indians and serve 5 million meals to those most affected by the pandemic across every state of India by 15 August 2021. Speaking on the occasion, Neel Ghose, Founder, The Robin Hood Army said that the pandemic has been devastating for lakhs of families and widened inequities across their communities. Whilst the government and administrations are doing their best, civic society must step up and contribute their talent and resources. In the lead up to their Independence Day, this year through the support of WhatsApp, Uber and Google for the #mission28states, Robins will mobilise 1.5 lakh people to get the COVID- 19 vaccine and at least 5 million meals across every state of India between 31 July-15 August 2021. At the Robin Hood Army, they are stoked to bring together civil society and leading technology partners together to undertake this massive effort to increase outreach against COVID-19 and create an impact across every state in the country. The initiative named #mission28states is a national effort across 28 states in the country, in which RHA volunteers shall bring together civil society supported by three leading technology firms to address two key challenges facing their nation today – feeding the hungry and ensuring every Indian is vaccinated before a potential deadly third wave. Like every RHA initiative that operated on a no-funds approach, all the support brought in by the technology partners will be used to achieve #mission28states throughout India.
