    Harsh Mandavia and his mum have turned a one-day offer to help distribute meals during India’s first Covid lockdown into a major feeding scheme for people in Mumbai battling to feed themselves during the pandemic.

    They have raised thousands of dollars from around the world to keep their cause going, and have no plans to stop, as the number of people pushed into poverty in the country has increased by over 70 million over the last year.
