Mumbai: As the second wave of Covid-19 continues to make life difficult for people in the country, many Good Samaritans are going the extra mile to help those in need. Rajiv Singal, a Mumbai-based businessman, is providing food to the people who have tested positive for Covid-19 and are in home isolation.

Singal is providing food twice a day to 200 home isolated Covid-19 patients. The inspiration came to him after he missed home-cooked food while he was home-quarantined after testing positive last year.

“My whole family was hospitalised due to Covid last year. After being discharged, we were home-quarantined. Our neighbour helped us with food but we did not get that taste and hygiene. So we decided to do help people who face such issues,” Singal said.

Singal has hired Asha’s Kitchen, a home-cooked food delivery service, for making food. It is the same food delivery service that he had hired when he was in quarantine and was missing home-cooked food.

“While my family and I were quarantined, we started ordering food from Asha’s Kitchen. We were satisfied with its taste, hygiene, and service provided by them. This is why I choose it for helping others,” he said.

The food is provided in an air-tight jar and is customised as per the demand of the patients registered with them, Singal further said.
