I also want to add a bit more details here for our visitors to read about this project. Shafeeq hails from Malapurram, a district in Kerala, India. Shafeeq is an unsung hero in GBRI. He is most of the times behind the scenes of this website you are watching courses on, reading blogs and what not.
Shafeeq is initiating this project through a youth club in his village where they propose to procure provision items and distribute it to economically challenged vulnerable families during the lockdown. Based on the conversation I had with him, the youth club leadership is happy to get our support. We are extremely thankful for this and other opportunities on this page to be a part of, to make a difference in the communities we live.
