Lucknow, 2nd Oct 2021: “Be the change you want to see”. Yuva Unstoppable, a non-profit organization founded by Amitabh Shah lives by the Mahatma’s diktat. The organization, through its programs and initiatives, has been empowering several less privileged communities under it since 2005. Extending such humanitarian efforts on 152nd birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Yuva Unstoppable launched the ‘Jeevan Raksha Vaccine Abhiyan’ from Raj Bhavan, Uttar Pradesh (UP). The campaign was kicked off by Hon. Governor of UP, Shri Anandiben Patel. It announced the gift of 1L edible oil per person to remove vaccine hesitancy and encourage appropriate uptake of COVID-19 vaccine by 150,000 eligible people from districts with development challenges.

Hon. Governor of UP felicitated well-known organizations like Plan India, Care India, America India Foundation, Oxfam, Ek Soch Foundation, Gates Foundation, to name a few, at the launch event for their extraordinary humanitarian work. ‘Jeevan Raksha Vaccine Abhiyan’ was inspired by Amitabh Shah-led Yuva Unstoppable’s Gujarat success case study. Under the pilot program, the NGO’s intervention led to 100% vaccination coverage across three of the remotest villages of the state – Kodaliya, Aniyari, Vanaliya within a span of 7 days.

Mrs. Rashmi Amitabh Shah, director, Yuva Unstoppable has been at the forefront of the transformational campaign. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”, said the Mahatma. ‘Jeevan Raksha Vaccine Abhiyan’ was launched with a similar belief. We are positive that this campaign will not only help remove vaccine hesitancy and accelerate vaccinations, but also provide basic ration like cooking oil to some of the neediest in these difficult times. We are extremely grateful to the Governor, UP and all the key patrons for their support and guidance in making this possible.”

Appreciating the initiative, Anandiben Patel, Hon. Governor of UP said: I laud the efforts of Rashmi Amitabh Shah and Yuva Unstoppable towards strengthening the country’s fight against the pandemic. The Jeevan Raksha Vaccine Abhiyan will be very helpful, particularly in removing vaccine hesitancy from aspirational areas.” She also appealed to the NGO to provide nutrition for 6 months to kids suffering from TB and thus, contribute to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mission of a TB-free India by 2025.
