With the help of donors like you, we have so far distributed over 100 tons of dry ration to vulnerable families, provided more than 200,000 face masks, 14,000 gloves and 23,000 sanitizers to Government front-line workers, made over 22,000 phone calls to provide psycho-social support to families with pregnant women, new mothers and young children and raised awareness on precautions during Covid-19. Thank you for making all this possible! Help us continue our work.
The Covid-19 pandemic has affected over 180 countries globally and is particularly challenging for India because of its population density and stressed public health systems. Experts agree that the best way of dealing with this crisis is through preventative measures, like social distancing, quarantining probable cases and following good personal hygiene. But as we go through these testing times in our homes, grateful for access to basic amenities, daily necessities and regular income, there are those who are not so fortunate.
Daily wage labourers, taxi drivers, house helps, sanitation workers, medical workers, health professionals and thousands of others are at a huge risk of contracting Covid-19, with possibly grave consequences. For them, every day has been a struggle due to income instability, lack of access to preventative measures and working to screen and treat affected people.
