India is now the global epicentre of the pandemic. People like our project staff and beneficiaries have limited economic resources, and they have to bear the brunt of a collapsing health infrastructure. The girls we work with come from disadvantaged families and cannot afford adequate medical support. Many are even facing to starve with the new lockdown which deprives poor families of their daily wage income. We support families in need of food and medical supplies, can you please help us?
The poor communities in India are facing terrible challenges due to the Covid pandemic. Often living in cramped conditions with many family members in small rooms they are prone to receive and spread the virus in a short span of time. Daily wage earners, as most of them are, have no reserves to survive a prolonged lockdown which is depriving them of earning opportunities. At the same time, the public healthcare system has collapsed and the prices for medical supplies are skyrocketing.
The project will support families in need with food supplies and cover their medical bills.
Families will survive and children will be able to continue their schooling after the pandemic. With no support, many of them would end up in child labor, trafficking or child marriage.
