covid19 outreach

Support My Choices Foundation as we continue to purchase and distribute staple foods and essential supplies to families in vulnerable communities in need and support victims of domestic violence during this lockdown with our counselling and legal support.

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.

From the end of March 2020, My Choices Foundation has been distributing the following items to people in rural communities: rice, pulses, mustard oil, wheat flour, potatoes, salt, sugar and soap. 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:

  • Andhra Pradesh
  • Bihar
  • Jharkhand
  • Karnataka
  • Maharashtra
  • Rajasthan
  • Telangana and
  • West Bengal
With your support, a donation of INR 2,000 or USD 25 will provide staple foods for one family for one month. My Choices Foundation is working to ensure that migrant workers and daily wage laborers from vulnerable communities are not suffering from hunger, malnutrition, starvation and exploitation – in addition to the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you witness a possible case of child trafficking, please call our helpline number 1800 419 8588 to report it.

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. While the lockdown is a necessary step to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it also means that women and children who are victims of domestic violence are now locked inside the house – with their abusers.

For information on how to stay safe:

While our Support and Counselling Centres remain closed in accordance with Governments directives, our counselling and legal teams are still working to support victims of domestic violence during this unprecedented and stressful time. If you, or someone you know, is is in need of counselling or legal assistance during this time, please call our helpline number 9333 404 141 and our teams will assist you.
