United Airlines and Rise Against Hunger India unite to end world hunger

United Airlines, the global partner of Rise Against Hunger India (RAHI), has joined hands with RAHI to pack 10,000 meals for street kids and orphans.  United Airlines has taken the initiative with Rise Against Hunger to package 2 million meals globally and this is their first initiative in India.

Around 60 United Airlines employees came together at the DLF Cyber City office of United Airlines to host their first meal packaging volunteering event, packaging 10,000 meals which will support street kids and children from vulnerable communities in Delhi. Under nutrition is one of the key issues plaguing India today. It is estimated that about 25,000 children under the age of 18 live on the streets of Delhi.  According to the (FAO) Food and Agriculture Organisation, around 195 million people go hungry daily in India with 1 in 4 children being malnourished. This in turn results in kids begging on the streets to earn their basic bread and butter.
United Airlines strongly believes in giving back to the society and providing the communities with necessary resources and welfare measures to help them grow and flourish.  In addition to sponsoring and volunteering for meal packaging/distribution, United Airlines was actively involved with emergency RAHI’s relief efforts in Kerala providing life-saving meals and contributing towards their daily life needs with funds to purchase fishing nets and boats.Representatives from United Airlines’ global headquarters in Chicago USA along with Rise Against Hunger USA officials have been visiting over the past several day various organizations supported by their meal packaging initiatives. 
Dola Mohapatra, Executive Director, Rise Against Hunger India said, “We are grateful to be associated with United Airlines our global partners for extending their support for the vulnerable populations in India. The encouragement and the enthusiasm of the Delhi-based employees to pack these meals were heartwarming.  We are also glad that representatives of United Airlines were able to visit and meet with direct recipients of our meals and other efforts.  There is nothing better than seeing and experiencing how their support is making a difference in the lives of children.
