The Situation Now In India

India has recorded the highest average of new Covid-19

India has recorded the highest average of new Covid-19 cases anywhere in the world.  The surge of infections has overwhelmed India’s already fragile health care system to the point of collapse.  India is seeing an average of over 2000 deaths per day with close to 16 million recorded cases.  Many more cases are unrecorded and the situation is truly desperate for many people in need.

The surge in covid infections has impacted availability of work and therefore food security.  With much of India hovering on total lockdown, day workers that earn their daily food with each day’s wages, have little or no food for their families.

Together we can support a solution to ease this dire situation!

Covid-19 has had a dramatic effect on health

Covid-19 has had a dramatic effect on the health of families and their children in India. Families are running out of food because there is no work due to the lockdowns caused by Covid-19. There are very few government support systems and travel restrictions  prevent travelling any distance to work. The pandemic has interrupted local work sites which are still hovering on lockdown, few businesses are operating, and tourism has ceased.   This combination of factors has meant that parents are having great difficulty working and earning any money to feed their family.  Our clients are often day laborers and the wages received during the day will buy food for the evening.  We’re seeing poorer nutrition is causing poorer health, poorer education, and greater social unrest.
