This Independence Day, #Mission1Million launched by the Robin Hood Army (RHA), will bring together people from all walks of the community – students, media houses, and the private sector, to serve one million citizens in need – on both sides of the border. Twenty-somethings from diverse backgrounds will rally together for this unique initiative that is touted to be “the largest war against hunger”.
Uber partnered with Robin Hood Army across cities in Pakistan and India to help provide 1 million meals across over 10 cities in both countries. Safee Shah, GM Uber Pakistan said “#Mission1Million is an outstanding example of what can be achieved when the private sector and civil society work together with the best interest of the local communities at heart.”
“The idea behind #Mission1Million is to draw awareness to the fact that there are more than 200 million citizens in India and Pakistan that sleep hungry every night. As the youth of our nations, it is imperative that we take onus, stop blaming everything on the State; and as private citizens use our skills and collective networks to make a real difference.” said Aarushi Batra, 27, the co-founder of the RHA, and an entrepreneur in the automotive industry.
This partnership would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of Partner-Drivers across Pakistan who volunteered for this initiative and will be working hard on 14th and 15th of August to make this mission a success.
