Our response in COVID-19 Virus Outbreak
The number of COVID-19 cases is “steeply rising” with each day in India, so too an increase in violence, discrimination, hunger, and huge unemployment. The lockdown in India left 400 million daily-wage labourers, the majority of whom are marginalised people, with no income source of food and, for many, no way home. For these people, proper health awareness practices are already low and, compounded with their poverty, hugely increases their vulnerability. It is likely that the incoming monsoon season will magnify the spread of the virus even more. Since, April, with the help of our well wishers, friends and family, we have been working so hard to provide emergency relief support for underprivileged families so that they can take care of themselves and their children during the Coronavirus outbreak. So far, still today, we have provided rations and essential goods 465 families.
