About

As COVID-19 pandemic crosses 1.2M+ cases across the world and several countries are enduring a lockdown, the marginalized communities across the world have been hit the hardest. In India, millions of daily wage laborers can no longer work as the country enters the second week of the lockdown. Several non-profit organizations working at a grassroots level are reporting a shortage of food and sanitary products for disadvantaged communities. Impacted groups: Migrant laborers and children who have moved from rural areas to cities for work Rural communities, transgenders, orphans and the homeless. Children from low-income families that cannot receive daily free mid-day meals offered in government schools but schools are shut down Please help Asha for Education support communities in desperate need of basic essentials in India during the current lockdown period brought on by COVID-19. A little will go a long way: 40$ - will help provide dry ration and other essentials for a family of four for 1 month Project updates: 1/ Our volunteers in Varanasi are distributing survival essentials to hundreds of families under lockdown!
