Committed to aiding the needy and destitute, Wishes and Blessings NGO tied up with entrepreneurial network, The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) New Delhi, to provide hot and nutritious cooked meals to the homeless, destitute and at-risk individuals and families, in Delhi under its Covid Relief Project, 2021.

Wishes and Blessings’ team ensured that social distancing norms were followed strictly, during the distribution drive.
