Srinagar: Tiffin Aaw – a Srinagar-based food delivery start-up, has been distributing free food to the patients and their attendants in several city hospitals amid ongoing holy month of Ramadan.
In a statement issued to GNS, the founder and owner of Tiffin Aaw, Rayees Ahmad Dar said that they have been distributing free meals since the first day of the holy month of Ramadan.
“We have been serving the patients and attendants for the last 25 days during Iftar (break-fast) and Sehri (pre-dawn meals). We distribute the food in various hospitals including at Children Hospital, JVC Bemina and L D Hospital,” Rayees said.
He said that this free meal initiative was all possible because of all those who contributed for it. “We only prepare and distribute it but the actual credit goes to those who contribute some money for these needy people and make this possible,” he said.
“We are thankful to them for choosing us because they believe in our food quality. They are not only contributing but also empowering the new start-ups,” he added.
Nida Rehman, the co-founder of ‘Tiffn Aaw’ and who is also Rayees’s wife, said that they have been mostly focusing on Children Hospital Bemina.
“We distribute at least 400 food packets to the patients and attendants per day in this hospital. The hospital is located on the bypass road and lacks a proper market where people could buy food for Iftari and Sehri, even as many are too poor to buy the food,” she said.
Muzaffar Ahmad, an attendant from south Kashmir’s Kulgam district who was at the Children Hospital said, “We appreciate the organizers for serving free food to patients. It completely feels homemade and is hygienic to eat.”
Notably, ‘Tiffin Aaw’ distributed free meals to the COVID-19 patients at city hospitals 2020 and 2021, which garnered them love and appreciation from different sections of society. (GNS)
