SUPPORT OUR COVID19 OUTREACH
COVID-19 has created an uncertain future for the 140 million migrant workers and daily wage laborers in India, due to their limited access to staple foods and drinking water. Furthermore, with no income due to the nationwide lockdown, the impacted families are placed in an increasingly vulnerable state and are subject to hunger, malnutrition, starvation and exploitation, in addition to the pandemic.

Through our NGO network, we are identifying people who have little to no access to essential goods and ensuring that these staple foods are distributed using safe social distancing practices in:
END DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN LOCKDOWN
The National Commission for Women has reported a sharp increase in cases of domestic violence and rape and attempted rape from the final week of March 2020 onwards.

For information on how to stay safe:
