ZTFI Provides COVID-19 Relief

The current lockdown in Mumbai city, brought on by the increasingly spreading Coronavirus pandemic has made it virtually impossible for the underprivileged in our community to venture out and collect the monthly rations and financial support provided by ZTFI (Zoroastrian Trust Funds of India). As one of the community’s leading non-profit organisations dedicated to ease the sufferings of the not-so-fortunate Humdins, ZTFI has now, for over a decade been at the helm of supporting community members through their various predicaments.

On 9th May, 2020, ZTFI reached out to over two hundred community brethren in need, distributing monthly ration kits, in adherence with the stipulated COVID-19 protocol. Since beneficiaries could not gather at one place to pick up the rations, as is the usual monthly norm, the brave and helpful ZTFI volunteers ventured into numerous different areas to reach the rations to those in need. Areas covered included Gamadia Colony, Wadia street, Captain colony, CJ Tata colony, Forjet street, Hirabai Petit Bldg., Khetwadi, Balaram street, Gilder lane, Marzban colony, Navroze Baug, Khareghat Colony and areas across Fort, Marine lines, Grant Road, Parel, Dadar, Lal Baug, Mahim, Andheri, Byculla and Ambawadi.

The beneficiaries were relieved and grateful to see the volunteers reaching out to them even during the lockdown. Kudos to Team ZTFI – Adv. Nevil Zaveri, Meherzad Taraporwala, Mehernosh Gazder and Delzad Doctor for delivering the rations and special thanks to Trustees – Yasmin Mistry and Arnavaz Jal Mistry for organizing this much needed service during one of Mumbai’s most crucial phases. “There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others,” concludes Yasmin Mistry, who drives ZTFI.
